The NYC based singer-songwriter made a name for himself when his single, “Bubblegum”, produced by Aalias (Eminem, Rihanna) was featured on NMF, Weekend Buzz, Pop Rising, Alternative R&B and Apple Music's Best Of The Week. He followed it up with his buzzy single, “Aftertaste”, which landed on NMF in several territories, including the UK, Mexico, Germany, Canada, and more. TOTEM now writes for others, and has had several recent releases in the J-Pop and K-Pop world, including Stray Kids’ “Get Cool” (JYP Ent.), ONF “Ice & Fire” (WM Ent), NCT (SM Ent), KANGTA (SM Ent), and more. In 2019, TOTEM was cast in the world premiere of The Wrong Man, a new musical by multi-platinum songwriter Ross Golan. This has helped TOTEM launch his acting career which he now pursues along with writing for others.
