ABOUT ARTEMAS:
At 24-years-old, Artemas, has only been releasing music since late 2020 but is fast developing a distinctive alternative pop sound through his relatable songwriting and captivating melodies. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and unashamed pop music fan is a student of the YouTube generation of songwriters/producers. Hailing from Oxfordshire, but now based in London, Artemas made the most of being restricted to his bedroom over the past couple of years, spending most waking hours during that time honing his studio craft. With release of his pretty mixtape earlier this year, he garnered over 250M streams lead by single “if you think i’m pretty” while being named an Artist to Watch by both Hypebeast and Ones to Watch. Now, he continues his global takeover with “i like the way you kiss me” zooming to over 450M streams, reaching #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Billboard 200 Ex-US chart.
