He's released his first single its music video

Payton's music career is just getting started but he says he's loved music for years. In a YouTube video he posted in March 2020, he says, "Music's a huge part of my life. I started to get into music when I was 9 years old and I fell in love with it ever since then."

In May 2020, Payton released the music video for his first single "Love Letter" and it got over 400k views in one day.

Insecurities stopped him from releasing music earlier

In that same YouTube video," Payton says insecurities got the best of him. "Music has been such a big part of my life but I never showed it because [I'm] really self-conscious about that stuff, get really insecure about it and I never showed any of that on social media because it was a personal thing that I did. I made music personally for my own ears and I played guitar for my own ears."

But you can hear other music from him on Tiktok

"Love Letter" is Payton's first single, but he's posted other some other songs on TikTok.

If he could, he'd trade lives with Justin Bieber
