Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth.
