Rising pop/R&B artist Ant Saunders releases his debut EP, Bubble, via RCA Records. Listen BELOW.
Ant will perform the new music to fans across North America when he joins GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum and chart-topping singer/songwriter, Camila Cabello, on the Romance Tour this fall. See dates below!
A full DIY effort, the entire Bubble EP was written, recorded and produced by Ant Saunders. The impressive collection of songs includes viral hit, “Yellow Hearts,” which was created in his bedroom and released on the day of his high school graduation. The track is now certified gold in the U.S., with over 330 million streams, and landed a position on the Billboard Hot 100. Emanating a nostalgic and intimate tone, the EP features lead single, “MISCOMMUNICATIONS” with accompanying video, and a soul-stirring, gospel-inspired track titled “It’s Over.” The EP showcases Ant’s prodigious abilities as an artist, in both his vocal performance and songwriting.
Of Bubble, Ant says, “When writing the EP, I wanted to present it from the perspective of my consciousness growing up. I was always (and still am) a shy and anxious person. Doing what I was most comfortable with and disregarding what everybody would think was what I would aim for, but I restricted myself. It was the type of restriction which, in my mind, felt like being inside a bubble. My goal is to reach people that have had similar issues growing up, or are facing these issues now, and uplift them. Everybody should have the ability to do as they please without doubting themselves.”
BUBBLE TRACK LIST:
Ant was born in Germany, where his parents were stationed in the military before eventually settling in the small town of Woodbury Heights, New Jersey. He began writing and recording in middle school using Audacity and a USB mic as an outlet to understand his emotions and the world around him. Influenced by R&B and hip-hop acts like Frank Ocean, Daniel Caesar, Tyler the Creator, as well as singer-songwriters like Ed Sheeran, John Legend, and John Mayer, Ant’s combination of lyrical storytelling and velvet vocal delivery makes for a uniquely flagrant and refreshing sound.
