Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Steven Reid Williams. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I was really impressed by his music.
A soul voice that at first made me think of a black person. One of those artists capable of thrilling you from the very first notes.
An enviable voice control, an incredible voice that reaches directly to your heart.
I closed my eyes while listening to ‘Fallen’ the new single from this talented artist and I imagined myself in a forgotten New York bar drowning my thoughts in a Whiskey one of those days when you just want to be alone.
The musical arrangements and the melodic construction are impeccable and refined, we are dealing with a great artist and it is a real pleasure to listen to his music.
Really fantastic, go and listen to him.
Fallen is Steven Reid Williams’ Single Out Now!
