Before Joytime was released, there was hardly anyone who heard of the young American Deejay Christopher Comstock. Comstock began his career by posting his first single Wavez on the musical site Soundcloud in 2015. It was months after the release of that song that Comstock started to gain more notoriety from major musicians who would repost the song in their own respected YouTube channels in order reach more fans for Comstock’s music.

The success of Wavez reached such enormous popularity to the point where Comstock seemed to have been the artist one could not do without—performing at major concert venues such as New York’s Pier 94 and California’s Hard Day of the Dead festival.

After the success of Wavez, Comstock released the breakthrough album Joytime under a new stage name called Marshmello. It was in the summer of 2016. That album consisted of ten songs. In the same period, he released Keep it Mello which featured Mexican rapper Omar Lynx. The album was certified gold by the Recording Association of America (RIAA).

In early 2017, Comstock was signed to Monstercat, a major Canadian recording music label with which he recorded Cataclysm. The video clip for the single reached up to one billion views on YouTube. The song also was Comstock’s first single to reach the Billboard’s Hot hundred chart peaking at only number sixty. Last year (2019), Comstock released Happier, featuring acclaimed British band Bastille. That was in August of 2019. This latest single became Comstock’s highest charting song to date. The single reached the number one spot on the Dance/Electronic chart in Canada, United States, Sweden, and United Kingdom.

Marshmello is CSMS Magazine’s artist of 2019.
