Review by: Justyn Brodsky
Bringing back the smooth R&B sound we’ve all come to know over the 90’s era, and a touch of today’s Neo Soul sensibility that beautifully compliments the style and song delivery, Cleveland rising artist Trusoul Davis has brought a very sensual and passionate sound to the table with his infectious vocal melodies, and naturally gifted voice that perfectly showcases the music he has been creating over the years.
Trusoul probably could name off an endless list of influences, but when I take a listen to him, I hear a very great take on a genre that really knows how to capture the soul. His song “What About Me” off of his most recent album really demonstrates the heart behind the talent and really puts different musical focuses throughout the song’s structure. The intro is very curious, and even puts some theatrical foreshadowing into the song’s content as his very impressive one-track verse showcases Trusoul‘s sensual, real, and attractive vocal approach that keeps the listener interested, and perhaps in an anticipated state by wondering what the Chorus is going to bring to the approach.
The Chorus does not disappoint, at all. Just like the 90’s influence that was spoken of with some fantastically executed vocal overdubs and room for harmonies, it just comes together as one powerful Chorus that brings every true melody most effective in this song to the forefront, while keeping everything interesting in the backdrop, and side panels of the mix. Trusoul definitely knows how to melt your heart with beautiful vocal melodies, especially in his chance to bring forth a flawlessly performed, and produced Chorus like the one here in “What About Me”.
It’s hard to find R&B nowadays that isn’t smeared with several Feature Artists (Rappers, Singers, etc.). It’s refreshing to hear one brilliant artist put his self-taught work and solo-vocals strictly into the music’s entirety. And this comes as no surprise coming from an Artist that has an insatiable love for the 90s (as most of us do). Trusoul Davis has this song and the rest of his Album for sale, and is also able to be heard on ReverbNation as well as a nation-wide range of Radio Stations, Podcasts, Music Blogs, Music Retailers, and more. I truly recommend this Artist in every way. Chances are if you listen to this song, you’ll want to hear them all. Prepare to become instant-fan status after lending your eardrums to Trusoul Davis.
