Cincinnati, Ohio-based, 19-year-old singer/songwriter Lincoln is streaming his debut single “Smokey Eyes”, taken from the forthcoming album A Constant State of Ohio which is due on January 27, 2017 via I Surrender Records.

Lincoln has a sound that is equal parts pretentious and angsty. He first caught the ear of his now label, I Surrender Records, when Sam Means, previously of The Format, tweeted a link to a YouTube cover Lincoln had done of one their songs. On his debut EP A Constant State of Ohio, which was produced by Brett Romnes (I Am The Avalanche), we get a chance to peer into the pure honesty and quirky juxtaposition of self-awareness and outward teenage rebellion that comes across as something you’ve never heard before.
