Today the dance music community comes to grip with another talented young artist lost too soon to mental health struggles. Pierce Fulton‘s brother announced on the artist’s social media pages that Pierce passed away on Thursday April 29. The statement does not specifically say how he died, but infers a tragic suicide by stating the death followed “a tragic struggle with his mental health”.
As the COVID lockdowns still continue in many places around the world, mental health struggles have been particularly acute for those in the entertainment sector. The loss of Pierce Fulton follows the untimely loss of i_o in late 2020 as well. News like this is especially sad coming days after we remember the similar loss of Avicii. There was a quick outpouring of condolences from artists like REZZ, ATTLAs, ilan Bluestone, Adventure Club, and more.
As his brother says, Pierce Fulton’s memory will live on through his music he gave to the world. Our hearts go out to Pierce and his family.
