Payton has had a handful of appearances since becoming famous on TikTok. In 2018 he attended Playlist Live in Orlando. 

In April 2020, Payton released his debut single “Love Letter.” In an interview with ET, he explained the inspiration behind his new song: “I’ll just be, like, driving and [an idea] will just hit,” he explained. “I like being more vulnerable in my songs just because I’ll get those people that are going through the same thing that I am, that can relate to my music and, like, actually listen to it with a purpose.”

Payton has loved music for a long time, though. In a 2020 YouTube video, he said: “Music’s a huge part of my life. I started to get into music when I was 9 years old and I fell in love with it ever since then.”

He wanted to release music earlier in his career, he said in a 2020 video, but insecurities got the best of him. “Music has been such a big part of my life but I never showed it because [I’m] really self-conscious about that stuff, get really insecure about it and I never showed any of that on social media because it was a personal thing that I did. I made music personally for my own ears and I played guitar for my own ears,” he said.
