Better Person releasing ‘It’s Only You’ (stream it), touring around SXSW
by Bill Pearis
Berlin-based artist Adam Byczkowski works under the moniker Better Person, crafting '80s-style lite balladry that hearkens back to Sade and "Careless Whispers"-era Wham. He's spent time in Montreal as well, playing in similar-minded Sean Nicholas Savage's band, and touring with TOPS. His new EP, titled It's Only You, will be out this Friday (2/19) via Mansions and Millions. You don't have to wait till then -- a stream of the whole thing makes its premiere in this post. Listen below.
Better Person will be heading to North America for SXSW and will stop in NYC on the way to play Baby's All Right on March 13 with Luke Rathborne and Joy Again.
Tickets for that will be on sale soon. UPDATE: the show is free. All dates are listed below.
