Hello Tito - An introduction to Tito Lavole

Hello Tito from WASTED TALENT on Vimeo.

We love a good surprise. And none better then crossing paths with Tito Lavole.

One hungover morning in summer we stumbled down to our favourite not so secret sandbar a touch north of Hossegor. And our weary, bloodshot eyes were met with Tito sending it into the flats with a flagrant disregard for his ankles, knees and general personal safety. Literally blowing every other fluro neoprene clad, entitled kid out the water.

We dug deeper. He hails from the windswept but immensely punt-able island of Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean. No stickers, studies full time at inland Bordeaux, plays synth at dingy sold out cellar gigs, the most infectious of smiles, once fed mushrooms to a staff member here, 300 something followers on Instagram...

We have a healthy penchant for the underdog and Tito encapsulates that perfectly.

Couple of months down the line, although now sticked up (courtesy of Afends) he’s been a most productive underdog; grinding in-between studies, gigs and the all important 'joie de vivre’’ and here are the fruits of his labour this past Autumn in France and Portugal.

Hello Tito, and long live underdogs everywhere.
