Since releasing his debut single “Maybe It’s My Fault” in October 2017, his music has been supported by publications such as Purple Sneakers, Magnetic Magazine, Auspop, Laundry Echo, Electronic North and more.

"The solo synth pop project of Amos Wellings is setting out softly with some of the most subtly brilliant pop music the region has produced since Daniel Johns finished up with puberty.” (Laundry Echo)

Early TKST meets CHVRCHES. Actually, get around Danny's band pre- TKST, Pigeon. I loved those guys. It's a nice listen but the vocals do need a bit more oomph amongst this soundscape, I was waiting for something big to happen.

Yeah a bit of Depeche Mode, CHVRCHES sounds coming out of this. The production is totally authentic. Reckon the vocals could be a bit stronger.

Skyepaint comes recommended by Newcastle Mayor Spencer Scott, and also Crown Prince Of Newcastle Joab Eastly. Who am I to challenge the oligarchy? pop sheen + compelling darkness.
