Arbour is a productive and consistent talent in the beatmaking community.

With numerous singles, collaborations, and brand deals in the last few years, the Seattle musician steadily crafts downtempo daydreams. Relaxed yet uplifting. Sorrowful yet hopeful. Like internalizing the darkness of night while knowing the sun will rise soon. His 2020 EP, BLUE, is an instrumental sailboat, abiding by the tide. Simply put: to listen to Arbour is to be at ease, it is to hear the waves crashing in the distance, knowing the coast is not too far away.
