“I wrote this 6-song EP about not being over a boy that ghosted me (but really trying to be),” Ber recalls. “They all come from that funny and uncomfortable place in between heartbreak/happy and paint a picture of how I felt when I finally felt like I was Halfway through my breakup.”
Ber’s previously released songs “Halfway,” “Boys Who Kiss You In Their Car” and “Superspreader” have already begun to receive early praise; V Magazine proclaims, “With a soft and muted backing track, ‘Superspreader’ allows Ber to show off her sugary-sweet voice and vocal range, along with her stripped back, honest lyrics.”
Originally hailing from Bemidji, Minnesota, Ber spent most of her early adult life residing in the U.K. before moving back home in 2021 where she lived in her uncle’s basement. During this unexpected transition, Ber began to create her debut EP, And I’m Still Thinking About That, remotely while collaborating with the likes of Sfven, Hazel English and Hot Dennis. Upon its release, the lead single, “Meant To Be,” immediately went viral and has since amassed over 60 million streams globally.
Having been praised for her heartfelt songwriting and angelic vocals, Ber has garnered support from Zane Lowe as well as Travis Mills and received early support on BBC Radio 1 and Triple A Radio. Ber made her debut performance at SXSW this year as well as Wisconsin’s Summerfest and played alongside Sigrid, Tom Odell, JP Saxe, Holly Humberstone and Maisie Peters.
