Flowerless is the alter ego of Nightwell lead singer and frontman, Jason Emsallem.
The project delves into emotional alt-pop with nods to the Toronto underground hip hop sound.
With abstract vocal manipulation paired with luscious walls of harmonies, Flowerless aims to be as dynamic as the pop punk scene he grew up with while paying homage to the buttery RnB sound he fell in love with along the way.
His latest release, “LAB,” reflects on the end of a relationship which taught Jason that he is, in fact, an “emotional bitch.”
Two years ago, he was in a relationship that wasn’t committed and about to express deeper feelings to the woman he was with, when she slept with her ex.
“Even though she said it was trash and she didn’t want to go back to him, the damage had been done and I wasn’t able to get past it to really continue things,” explains Flowerless.
“LAB (Life’s a Bitch)” is the result of Emsallem turning this “fucked up thing into something beautiful.”
