Just through my usual Soundcloud madness, Toronto native GrayHawken floated into my lap. Of course as Toronto often dictates, his sound lies loosely in the R&B world, but really his sound goes much further than that. He’s not following those traditions of the city, he’s making a more pop-leaning brand of music, with this gorgeous, corbin/spooky black type of vocal tone, that especially gives his music this dark tone to it. He’s a fantastic writer and is producing his music himself on top of that. I’d love to see what he can do consistently writing for others too, especially just listen to how strong the build up and hook on his latest song “SOS” is. The future’s absolutely bright for this kid so we’re strapped in for the ride. Take a listen to “SOS” below.
