The artist, 25, was reportedly found deceased on the morning of December 10th in a Nashville hotel room, where he was staying ahead of a scheduled performance at The Caverns, a concert venue in Pelham. The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said there was no evidence of trauma and an autopsy by the Medical Examiner's Office is pending.

"His music is incredible. I was always obsessed with it," wrote REZZ in a caption shared alongside an old photograph with CharlestheFirst. "Mercy Falls? Impeccable. 'Foreboding Feeling' another favorite. It was an honour to have you on some of the shows. We all loved you."
