- After dropping out of the Berklee College of Music, Wrabel had relocated to Los Angeles to focus on a songwriting career. His breakthrough had come when he had been signed up by Pulse Recording as a songwriter.
- In 2010, he had recorded a theme song titled Get Up for the popular TV game show Minute to Win It. 2 years later, he had been signed up by the multinational record label Island Records.
- He had received mainstream recognition in 2014 when Dutch DJ Afrojack had released a version of his song titled Ten Feet Tall. This version had become an international hit and its music video had been premiered in the United States during Super Bowl XLVIII (an American football game that was played to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2013 season) in a commercial for the light beer brand Bud Light. It had been viewed by about 100 million viewers. Wrabel had later released the original (piano-based) version of the song in May 2014.
- In June 2016, he had released his debut single as a lead artist which was titled 11 Blocks. It had peaked within the ‘Top 20’ of the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 and the US Adult Pop charts. The track was released with both a lyric video and a music video and is an autobiographical description of his feelings about his first love who had moved 11 blocks away from him in California.
- In July 2017, he had released a song titled The Village to show support for transgender people. The music video for the song had depicted a young transgender boy living with his closed-minded family highlighting the difficulties of being a part of the LGBTQ community. He had written the song in February 2017 after the removal of federal protections for transgender students in public schools in the United States and it had been released after the then-American President Donald Trump had tweeted about banning transgender individuals from the military.
