Kris “Halo” Pierce is the award-winning music producer, songwriter, and DJ based out of New York City, who is gearing up for his next album, Artificial Breed. He has released a series of singles once a week over the past month, starting with “Blue Flower,” the synthpop and electro-pop song in collaboration with Tijen.

He has released his latest single “Outside of Time,” a melodic-based electronic song with a  space-like ambience layered over the melody. Written by Kris “Halo” Pierce, Jason Bazinet, Jason Lazzara, “Outside of Time” is about how time freezes when we live inside our own thoughts, yet time doesn’t stop moving. The processed vocals sing “Take a break You/Need to Align/Just get out You’re/Dying inside/Outside/The sun will shine You’ll find your Way to climb.”

The amount of lyrics in the song are light. There aren’t many, but of the few words heard, the lyrics are heavy. The synthetic nature of the vocals with the electronic beat over the more traditional melody drives the message of how the thoughts we are stuck in are disproportionate to reality, that the time spent in our head is dissonant to our lives.

I fell in love with music when I first picked up a guitar at age 8. When I played, my friends and family would smile and spill with joy over the music I played, even though it was never Grammy quality. While my music career never made it past high school, my love for music never waivered. I loved the feeling of bringing a smile to someone's face through music and wanted to keep that passion going. So, I took it upon myself to continue to support and promote artists by writing about their music. This way, I can support my personal passion for music and bring entertain and joy to others through music.  Outside my love for music, I do enjoy a good hike and being in the outdoors. My favorite place that I've hiked is in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I love to travel too. I've been to Costa Rica, Vancouver, BC, and England, but the best place by far is Germany on Oktoberfest. I liken that experience to being in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I like a good book now and then, but I'm more of a streaming fiend. I live for crime docuseries on Netflix, veterinary shows on National Geographic, and re-watching Scrubs on Hulu.
