Before launching his solo project, Zolton spent a decade as the guitarist and vocalist for Sydney bands, Lucid and Jetstream. After Jetstream disbanded, Zolton moved to New York where he gave music away and focused on a new career running a digital media company. During that time, he launched the music and culture website, Lost At E Minor, which was a vehicle through which to promote and encourage the talent of some Australia’s hottest emerging creatives.

At the end of 2016, Zolton moved back to Sydney and was re-invigorated to get back into creating music again. He sought out talented young producer, Taka Perry, and began work on a new musical project that incorporated big 80s-styled synths, beats, and melodic hooks.
