Cris Cab is the newest artist to hit the music scene, and he is extremely good! Hailing from Miami, the 18 year old takes inspiration from Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley among others. When I first began listening to Cris early last year I had a feeling that he would blowup, well I guess Pharrell Williams has that same feeling. The producer, singer and designer took Cab under his wing as his protégé. The fact that he is Pharrell’s protégé there is almost a guarantee that his music will be up to par with quality music as opposed just mainstream music.
The most refreshing thing about Cab is that he is all music and no gimmick. That means no extra hair dye, clothes, makeup, and ridiculous tattoos to hide behind. With Cris what you see is what you get, and there are definitely no complaints. The singer incorporates much of the Miami/ Caribbean vibe into his music. The young singer also has a unique voice, where he can hold a note and create an enticing story.
In the end, all I know is that listening to Cris Cab brings me back to those lazy summer days in high school. As melodic and addicting his music is you can catch more of it on his debut EP, Foreword. Cris is also embarking on a new tour, now that he is done with high school. Click here to download his EP or to see if he is coming to a city near you.
