Signed to Rostrum Records, the label that broke Pittsburgh legends like Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, My Favorite Color looks to follow in their footsteps as the next artist from the Steel City to make it big. In September 2021, My Favorite Color's artistic gifts and engaging sense of humor inspired Pigeons & Planes to name him a Best New Artist. Recent singles, "Frustrated" & "Dead It," herald a return for the L.A.-via-Pittsburgh artist, who is working on his follow-up to Velma, his ambitious debut album. A tour through the Rostrum Records signee's inventive mind and finely-tuned aesthetic, Velma is a revealing and relatable album--listening feels like catching up with an old friend about his life. On songs like the lead single "Funeral," My Favorite Color contemplates complex questions about faith, mortality, music, and love., but at the end of the day MFC is an artist who just likes to have a good time.
