Influences[edit]

Pettitt says that he draws inspiration from lots of different artists across different genres. In particular he names Illenium and Marshmello as two artists he particularly likes[1]. While he has written music for the different genres, he says that as he has aged, his style has come to resemble that of more popular music:

I started writing songs and composing from a young age and I’ve taken that passion with me throughout my life to where I am now. I’ve written all kinds of music, but I seem to settle more in the popular genres you hear on radio.[1]
