It’s hard to do school during the day and be a musician at night, but that’s exactly what Gus Dapperton is doing right now.
In the time he isn’t touring, Dapperton is attending Drexel University. Right now he’s taking the semester off to hit the road on the You Think You’re a Comic! Tour.
It’s not a bad idea to have a backup plan just in case, but Dapperton has the talent to make it big in the industry, so there isn’t any saying if he will need the college degree. What many can say, for certain, is that Dapperton’s sound is attracting a lot of attention, and his debut EP was the reason why.
Yellow and Such was a phenomenal record, and his R&B/indie mold provides the right balance between his quirky and extravagant side. While he is also getting known for his fashion, one can’t take their eyes off of the special music he is creating, which manifest better when it is played live.
