Dempsey Bolton releases “Wait For It”
“Wait For It” is an R&B vibe that discusses sex and intimacy, reminiscent of a Prince track but with a modern, sultry twist.
“I wrote it after reflecting on what I’ve seen in the media regarding sex. Growing up, there was an idea perpetuated in almost every TV show or movie I watched; the idea that sex is a conquest and, even more than that, it’s an all or nothing affair.” He said about the track.
As a kid, Dempsey grew up listening to Otis Redding and Stevie Wonder while also taking interest in other areas of expression. Art that attracted his attention was often dark and tragic such as the works of painter Mark Rothko or dystopian writer Philip K. Dick. While sinking his teeth into playing and writing music, Dempsey enrolled in Astrophysics at the University of Alberta. After finishing his degree, instead of setting his sights on the stars he started focusing more on songwriting before eventually deciding to pursue music full time. Dempsey began producing demo tracks in his home studio inspired by the likes of Jack Garratt, James Vickery and Jordan Bratton.
Currently, Dempsey is working with Trey Mills, finishing his debut album Monochrome which deals with themes of love and the media, delving deep into how TV and movies create unrealistic expectations for romantic relationships
