Introducing singer-songwriter and musician James Tillman, whose latest single “Love Within” will have you overwhelmed in seconds with its effortless, folk-soul vibe and hushed vocals. Having been exposed to his parents’ extensive album collection, which included everything from Afrika Bambaataa to Joni Mitchell, Tillman offers, as might be expected, a bit a of a genre hybrid.
Although he doesn’t have much music out yet, Tillman’s first EP titled “Shangri-La” will be out on April 29th, the small catalogue of work found on his soundcloud page shows a level sophistication and maturity beyond his young years. Much like yesterday’s post on Sye Elaine Spence, this is a brave record as it’s sparse and almost acoustic in feel, but the sheer quality of the voice and artistry make it seem effortless.
Press play. We’ll keep you updated.
