Wyatt Flores, born on June 29, 2001, in Stillwater, Oklahoma, is a rising talent in the country music genre. His upbringing in a town with a rich musical heritage, including influences from artists like Garth Brooks and The All-American Rejects, has significantly shaped his musical style. This blend of traditional country elements with modern sensibility is a hallmark of his music.

Wyatt grew up on the outskirts of a small college town in Oklahoma, an area with a rich musical heritage. Influenced by local legends like Garth Brooks, All American Rejects, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and The Great Divide, Flores was immersed in a culture where music was a significant part of everyday life. His father's experiences as a drummer in the Red Dirt scene further deepened his connection to music, providing him with a unique perspective and appreciation for the craft.

Flores' professional music journey began with the release of his debut single "Travelin’ Kid" in the Spring of 2021. This release marked the start of his foray into the music industry, with small shows around Oklahoma helping him to connect with audiences and refine his style.

In a pivotal move for his career, Flores relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, in the summer of 2022. This relocation was a clear indication of his commitment to pursuing music full-time. In Nashville, he released the fan-favorite “Losing Sleep” in February 2022, followed by a series of stand-alone singles that showcased his storytelling and sound. These releases helped establish him as a promising artist in the music industry.

Apart from his musical talents, Flores has skills in welding, which he used to support himself while establishing his music career.

His discography includes songs like "Please Don't Go," "Losing Sleep," and "Holes," which have collectively garnered over 27 million streams across various music platforms. His music has been compared to artists like Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson, reflecting his growing prominence in the country music genre.

Flores' music is characterized by a blend of influences from artists like Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, and Caamp. His approach to music focuses on authenticity in lyrics, collaboration, and sound. He aims to tell stories that resonate with his audience, bridging various musical styles.

The "Life Lessons" EP, released on November 17, 2023, is a significant addition to Flores' discography. It features a mix of previously released singles and new tracks, including the introspective ‘Astronaut’ and ‘Orange Bottles’. The EP reflects his growth as an artist and his ability to navigate different themes and emotions. Additionally, Flores has confirmed that this EP is the first of three, with the next two expected in 2024.

Flores is actively touring, with dates across various locations in 2023, including Virginia, Colorado, Texas, and Alabama. A notable highlight is his performance at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium alongside Charles Wesley Godwin and Cole Chaney. These performances are crucial in expanding his reach and connecting with a broader audience.

As he continues to tour and prepare for future releases, Flores is undoubtedly an artist to watch in the alt-country music scene.
