Like Cassius Clay (aka Muhammad Ali, for those who don’t pay attention to sports legends), Cautious Clay keeps knocking us over with his eclectic R&B, hip hop, and pop songs. The Cleveland talent wrapped up 2017 with a bang after releasing songs like Cold War and Joshua Tree, as well as collaborating with the likes of Petit Biscuit and Bipolar Sunshine. And now he’s kicked off 2018 in a similar fashion with Stolen Moments, an acoustic R&B soul melter from his forthcoming EP, Blood Type. The sweetly melancholic, intimately consoling ballad oozes endless regret. With it, Cautious Clay poignantly captures those crestfallen moments after a heated argument, or that morning after when you find yourselves re-living last night’s vehement exchange. His Blood Type EP will be out April 13th.

Every new song from Sam Fischer only serves to reel me in deeper under this Australian-born, Los Angeles-based crooner’s spell. The Los Angeles based singer songwriter breaks our hearts with acoustic R&B pop on This City, a heartfelt and rousing serenade from his debut EP, Not A Hobby. The bittersweet melting aches with sadness and anguish, thoroughly accentuated by Sam Fischer’s ardent cooing, which has never been more spectacular. This City is one for those  late nights, when sleep evades you and heartache casts a long shadow under a lonesome moon. You can also stream the single via Spotify, here.

The other day, I ambled upon a mysterious project named Roy Blair, and I know nothing about him, or them. I’m guessing it’s a him, but I can’t be sure. His latest single, Shell, is making quite an impression, having acquired 19K streams on Soundcloud along and I’m sure several times that on Spotify and elsewhere. Its a lo-fi fusion of indie rock and acoustic R&B soul. It feels sincere and gritty, heartfelt and enduring. And this isn’t Roy Blair’s first fine rodeo, either. His Soundcloud features a full year of fine sonic accomplishments, each of them having racked up a lot of listens, too. You can check them out on Soundcloud, here. You can be sure I’ll be looking out for more info regarding this artist in the days ahead.
