About Dempsey Bolton:
While in school at University of Alberta finishing up a degree in Astrophysics, Dempsey began producing demos in his free time between classes. After graduating, he decided to forgo his Master’s Degree and began working on music full time. With his debut release “What About You” Dempsey garnered significant attention from curators and publications, landing on multiple Spotify editorial playlists including New Music Friday Canada and receiving glowing reviews from bloggers and journalists alike. Dempsey is currently working on his sophomore album set to release in July 2023, a self-produced project that starkly contrasts the lyrics and music; the album deals with the dangers of staying silent while in crisis and letting one’s mental health go unchecked while delivering upbeat, nostalgic, summery vibes in its production.
