ABOUT ROLE MODEL
Rather than presenting some unobtainable ideal, ROLE MODEL - a.k.a. Tucker Pillsbury - finds a perfect hybrid of observant hip-hop, clever pop, and cinematic alternative inside of his own personality flaws, cracks, and imperfections. With nearly 70 million total streams by 2020 and acclaim from i-D, HIGHSNOBIETY, Complex, and more, this approach consistently endears him to fans and tastemakers alike. Born and raised in Portland, ME, Tucker originally planned on pursuing a career in filmmaking, but it was during his freshman year at a film school in Pittsburgh where he discovered his passion for music. He began creating music with two of his friends in his dorm room, started watching YouTube tutorials on how to record and master his own music using Logic, writing his own songs and learning everything he could. Tucker always loved to write and spent a lot of time developing a signature style on his own. In 2017, he uploaded "Cocaine Babe" to Soundcloud and ignited a palpable buzz. "Girl In New York" organically landed on Spotify's coveted New Music Friday, and he caught the attention of Benny Blanco and Interscope Records. Early on, the late Mac Miller even reached out and expressed admiration for his music, encouraging him to keep going. ROLE MODEL's 2019 EP, oh, how perfect, popped off powered by tracks like "hello!" (13.6 million Spotify streams), "that's just how it goes" (8.8 million Spotify streams), and "notice me" [feat. BENEE] (7.5 million Spotify streams). Recently, ROLE MODEL released his sophomore project entitled our little angel, which includes previously released singles “going out” (Click HERE to watch), "blind” (Click HERE to watch), and "for the people in the back” (Click HERE to watch).

Andy Hopkins (AKA Hauskey) writes, performs and produces his records, and whilst this heralds his first audacious steps, Hauskey has led a colourful musical life that already reads like a low-budget arthouse film script. Let’s rewind a bit. Back to Andy finding a John Coltrane record in his mom’s collection. “Naima,” he recalls, was the song that raised a cluster of epiphanies, a veritable constellation of lightbulbs dazzling over his teenage head. At thirteen he wrote his first songs. “A great song is like a great movie” he muses, “you become so engrossed in it that you ‘become it’ and forget you’re even watching a movie. That’s what good music should do too.” Andy studied at Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and started his own music school. This wasn’t simply teaching the rudimentary shapes of power chords for pocket change, this was a fully functioning, fully staffed, multi-branch school with over 500 students. But despite its success, Andy was getting anxious that his path to a career in music was taking a road he hadn’t planned on taking. He picked up a few possessions and flew to London. Andy bagged himself a part time job and played as many gigs as he could manage, convincing bookers that he was about to become a Very Big Deal Indeed. Shortly after, he headed back to Australia, a little broken down perhaps, but with a steely determination not to break. Dusting himself off, he went out and bought the cheapest Toyota van he could find on Gumtree, made a few crucial adjustments and headed right back out of the city to a small rural farm where he pulled up, put the brakes on and set to writing more music from the singular comfort of that very van. All decisions made were to weave himself into this position; arrowing sonically adventurous pop music into the hearts and minds of the musically curious, and then everybody else.
