Restless Modern Bio

While Restless Modern made his debut with production work on “Navigator,” a pop single that has been streamed over 10 million times, the young artist didn’t put out his first self-produced, self-written, and self-performed work until late that year. “I’m Okay” was the first single off of his To Come Undone EP, a dark and introspective body of work that has accumulated nearly 2M streams since its independent release in early 2018. “It’s always been my goal to handle every part of the music myself. When I’m making the productions, writing the lyrics, singing the songs, and mixing/mastering the records, I can get as close to my vision as possible.”  RM has been featured in press outlets like Atwood Magazine, EARMILK, NEST HQ, Ones To Watch, Indie Shuffle, Acid Stag, MTV, and more. He has also been featured on top-level curated YouTube platforms like Taz Network, WaveMusic, SuicideSheeep, and many others.

Restless Modern, aka Jack Kieffer, cites artists like EDEN, The 1975, Frank Ocean, and Blackbear as key influences, though he is cautious to describe himself in terms of others. “Every single day is about improvement and differentiation. I listen to and study the art that I love, but my job is to create something that no other artist can create. Something that is unique to my perspective and my abilities - so that’s what I’m shooting for.” RM graduated from Harvard University in 2018 and is currently working on his artist project full-time in NYC.

LYRICS

[verse]

i’ve been feeling so small

and thinking in the same way

even i never believe 

all the bullshit I say

like give up, you won’t

my path is holy

for the ones I broke

i swear i’m not sorry

fuck up, i don’t

you think you own me

where did my life go

let me write my story

[pre-chorus]

tell me

they’re gonna

be in love

in love 

give up

you won’t

be great 

enough

enough

[bridge]

push it 

‘til i break my mental

nothin if i do not make it

and i been on for years 

i’m still here

and i been on for years 

i’m still here 

i bit on this shit

like lockjaw

i wish i could quit

and face it

and i been on for years 

i’m still here

and i been on for years 

i’m still here 

[verse]

i’ve been feeling so small

and thinking in the same way

even i never believe 

all the bullshit I say

like give up, you won’t

my path is holy

for the ones I broke

swear i’m not sorry

[outro]

I see you pulling my friends on me

taking a dance from me

tunnel vision

I can see the end when it pans for me

know what I can believe

i’m gonna stand for me
