Serpentwithfeet (born Josiah Wise) is an experimental R&B/gospel vocalist and performance artist whose growing body of work is rooted in dueling obsessions with the ephemeral and the everlasting key components of his artistic journey from a childhood stint as a choirboy in Baltimore through his time at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where he studied vocal performance before relocating to New York City. His debut album, Soil is a return to the sensibilities and wide-eyed curiosity of his musical youth before symmetry and sterile soundscapes ruled the roost. With the release of Soil the chameleonic Serpentwithfeet rediscovers and ultimately returns to the unhinged version of himself he was sure he had outgrown.
