Stepping into his own limelight, merry choppins aka Tony Esterley has been helping other artists create music for years. His production and songwriting credits include work with BTS, SIA, Andra Day, Yo Gotti, KIRBY and Ashe amongst others. Finding himself isolated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tony decided it was the right time to take a step back and create music for himself again. Stating he means business with his debut, double single ‘cloudin / nananana’, the prominently electronic tracks are futuristic and show a lot of potential for merry choppins as a solo artist.
“This project serves a dual purpose – to have a platform to share my own unique sound as an artist after years of helping others define their sound and also challenge myself to take a couple steps past the norms into the weird zone. I’ve written so many great songs with artists that didn’t necessarily fit their lane. Some of what you’ll hear from merry choppins are songs that started with others but were re-produced and made into my own, while others have been merry choppins from day one” – merry choppins
