Toronto native Isaiah Peck was born into the spells of hip-hop, discovering his love for the art of dance by the age of 9. The multitalented artist then found another passion in acting and starred in the hit Canadian Television Series: "The Next Step" for a couple seasons.
Discovering his singing ability, the 18-year-old decided to take the music industry by storm, switching his focus yet again. His debut single "Switch" (feat. GloryBoyJ) is an atmospheric and catchy trap infused hip-hop track where Peck alternates smooth reverb vocals and a slick flow.
Speaking about the song, Isaiah Peck says:”Switch’ is ultimately a dance song with the underlying message of staying solid as a person and never switching up. I been through moments in my life where I’ve seen people change around me and act different around people I know when they never used to move like that. Whether it be girls of guys, I’ve seen first hand. People act “two face”, they’ll be on your side and in your corner on day and gone the next.”

What is your songs story:
“Switch” is ultimately a dance song with the underlying message of staying solid as a person and never switching up. I been through moments in my life where I’ve seen people change around me and act different around people I know when they never used to move like that. Whether it be girls of guys, I’ve seen first hand. People act "two face”, they’ll be on your side and in your corner on day and gone the next.
What makes the Song unique?
“Switch” unique because it’s not only my stories, it’s a mixture of perspectives. I’m talking about “shooting for the stars” and my lack of trust towards some people around me that are changing and trying to dim my light and GBJ is talking about flexing on certain people and girls who act mix up.
How did you compose you song:
Composing the song was fairly simple as I have a great team of people around me. The song is produced by a guy named Giordash and he’s super musically inclined. The funny thing was prior to this song, we we’re working on something else totally different in the studio, he was creating from scratch and oddly enough we never finished that 'cause I wasn’t feeling it. Told him to scrap it and we we’re on to the next. After that I said make a simple trap beat and he literally did it in 5 minutes, no problem. The lyrics came hella easy since my homies Devon Tracy & S4G4 we’re in the room. We all we’re just yelling random stuff, brainstorming ideas and it was honest because we’ve ALL gone through the experience of having haters who are nice around you but show their true colours when they are not.
What were the challenges while writing creating the song?
With creating “Switch” there wasn’t too much that was difficult. After doing my verse I knew exactly who to feature on it and it just unfolded smoothly. The only thing that I could say I was a bit unsure about at first was whether or not we even wanted to use that word as the word. Finding the topic for a song isn’t always quick. I said “Swish” originally which is why the song starts with that little basketball line.
How did you overcome them?
We all decided on “Switch” over “Swish” since you could go more ways about it. It was a more vague concept and easier to write around since it had multiple meanings.
Where did you get inspiration for your song?
Real life. My father is always encouraging me to write about my reality and the world around me. He thinks it’s integral to the art and being authentic. So the inspiration for the song was life.
With "Switch", the talented young artist proves he has the potential to reach the same level of success of a PARTYNEXTDOOR.
