Gus was born in Warwick in New York in 1997. After finishing school he attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, studying music technology and working on his own songs. He soon left school and returned to New York, where he began developing the Gus Dapperton persona.

Using analog synths, reverb-heavy vocal crooning, and an overall smoothly produced take on bedroom indie, he began releasing songs online in 2016, gaining some traction with compositions like “Moodna, Once with Grace” and “Ditch.”

Early reviews of his sound drew comparisons to Mac DeMarco and King Krule’s hazy melodicism.
