Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and viral creator Payton Moormeier has released his anticipated second single “Habits. Check out the first look on Hollywood LifeInspired by a flame, on “Habits,” a hummable riff cuts through hand claps, keys, and a skittering bounce as he delivers a hypnotic hook, “I can’t seem to fall asleep, cuz thoughts of you and me always seem to haunt my dreams, it was better you and me.” 
“‘Habits’ hits a lot different than ‘Love Letter’ to me, both were influenced by a girl but tell 2 different stories,” Payton shared with Hollywood Life. “It’s a personal song to me showing light on some s*** I’m always too scared to talk about.”
“Habits” is the follow up to Payton’s recently released debut single “Love Letter,” which racked up millions of streams and views within days of its release. After a relationship ended abruptly leaving Payton with no closure, he was inspired to express the feelings she left him with on the track and he tells his story through airy guitar, hip-hop beat craft, and lyrical vulnerability, turning up with a signature style of his own.
Music has helped the Georgia-born and North Carolina-raised singer gain the confidence to express his innermost thoughts through self-penned originals. After discovering Metallica at seven-years-old, his mom bought him a guitar, and Payton taught himself how to play by consuming countless hours of lessons on YouTube. He later widened his musical palette by listening to Post Malone, blackbear, and more.
 
Payton  began posting covers on social media when he was only 12, generating nearly 1 million views from a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” In between honing his chops and regularly creating online content, he posted a Tik Tok of Halsey’s “Without Me” that caught fire in 2018. Exploding on the platform, Payton has since attracted over 12 million fans on Tik Tok538 million “likes” and billions of views and impressions. As his profile rose, Payton  focused on crafting his original solo debut. With more music to come, Payton hopes listeners and fans who watched him grow are inspired to chase their dreams too.
