SiriusXM Hits 1 (Ch. 2) is proud to announce vaultboy — a singer-songwriter from Jacksonville, FL, with a huge TikTok following — as their latest Hits 1 to Watch artist. Click below to watch his full interview on Hits 1 with Mikey Piff.

Vaultboy first started experimenting with music during high school and has been perfecting and growing his craft ever since. In 2018, he began live-streaming himself singing, performing, and gaming full-time. Then, in late 2020, he joined TikTok to share his original music and found his fun and relatable lyrics deeply connected with the audience that has grown around him. His alias vaultboy pays homage to his love of video games, specifically the Fallout series.

Besides creating his own music, he has written with the likes of gnash and most recently co-wrote Sarah Barrios’ single “Have We Met Before?” featuring Eric Nam. Currently, vaultboy has accumulated over one million TikTok followers and has had numerous viral videos, including the original 30-second clip of “everything sucks.” After the clip was used in over 400k user-generated videos on the platform, it became his debut single.
