Early life and career

In 2019, Muroki released his debut solo single “For Better or Worse”, which caught the attention of New Zealand musician Benee, who played it during her appearance on Elton John’s podcast Rocket Hour. Benee later reached out to Muroki over Instagram, and asked him to perform as a supporting act of her New Zealand tour in late 2020. In October 2020, Benee signed Muroki as the first musician on Olive Records, her personal imprint label.
In April 2021, Muroki released Dawn, an extended play he had been working on for a year alongside producers Josh Fountain and Djeisan Suskov.
