At only 22 years old, Curtis Waters has already established himself as a talented musical triple threat—writer, producer, and performer—and he doesn’t miss the opportunity to flex his creative muscles on the violent delight that is Star Killer.  Sonically addictive, the relentless and unflinching production serves only to increase the power behind Waters’ stark lyricism. At its core, Star Killer is a personal commentary for Waters, who is navigating new success whilst also staying true to his identity as a first-generation immigrant from Nepal.  

Following one billion streams of his debut album, Pity PartyWaters followed up with the electrifying post-punk single "Manic Man,” a brutally honest reflection on identity, insecurity, and mental health. Waters has earned over 150,000 YouTube subscribers, 60,000 followers on Instagram, and 138,000 on Tik-Tok, earning him over 100 millions views across platforms. After the growth of the viral hit “Stunnin’,” the Nepali-born creative was covered by the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, and Pigeons & Planes. He quickly launched himself into collaborations with acts like renforshort, Kim Petras, and Brevin Kim, alongside serving as the ambassador for major brands including MCM, Mercedes, and Häagen-Dazs. After experiencing rapid online success, the multi-hyphenate spent time re-imagining his creative identity and sound, working with artists like TiaCorine, Shrimp, and greek, as he built a new world.

His forthcoming album is a true immigrant story, a reflection on a young, brown creative being thrown into the mainstream overnight, while navigating deep issues of self-doubt and cultural identity along the way. 

The $40 VIP Bad Son merch bundle includes a ticket to Waters’ first-ever headline tour and a limited-edition “Inner Child” tee (featured in the “Manic Man” music video) at a fans-only discounted rate. The piece is designed by Curtis himself and printed on high-quality fabric.
