Discovering new music is a joy. But discovering new music from your own shores is always a little extra special. So, it’s with great pleasure I introduce Kaleem Taylor to you.
Information is sparse about this “R&B/Soul singer from Herfordshire” – his official website is empty, his facebook is relatively quiet and he doesn’t have a soundcloud. Not ideal.
… But what I do know is that I love his new single ‘Never’. Riddled with Soulful influences, his raspy vocals sound both distinctive and strong. This one reminds me of those Soul-slash-R&B jams from the 90′s – the ones with thick basslines and thumping drums – the kind I used to wait for on ‘The Lick’ (ah, those days). A true testament to this young mans aptitude, really.
‘Never’ follows his debut single ‘Blow Out’ which I also just discovered – it too is impressive. Slightly more up-tempo, it shows off his vocal abilities and displays a more funky side to his talents.
I want to keep my eye on this dude, I like what he’s bringing. Listen & download (arrow button) to both ‘Never’ & ‘Blow Out’ below…
