His famous mother, celebrated for her mega-hits including "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," "Time After Time," and "True Colors," has spoken about her son following in her footsteps musically.

"It's more underground," Lauper told Vanity Fair of his style. "He's on SoundCloud and he's a terrific artist."

Lauper has also been candid about the impacts of fame on her family and son specifically. "People look at him, and he feels the pressure of being my son," she told The Guardian. "Someone came up to me in the street and kept talking and talking."

She added, "People said I was so career-driven, but once the kid came, I looked at how I can support everything: make a record, tour — and my husband would say, 'Go to Europe, I've got him.' I took my son on tour sometimes, but he needed his own space."
