Talking about Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter/rapper/producer is like talking about a who’s who of the music industry. We’re talking about Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, India.Arie, Joss Stone, Kelis, and Leona Lewis just to name a few. It’s not surprising considering that music is in his blood; he’s the son of William “Mickey” Stevenson and the grandson of Solomon Burke. What might be surprising is that he has been giving out freeleases pretty consistently since 2008.
Almost every project he’s released has had a different flavor to it and this time is no different. Mood Music is about could be classified as almost entire neo-soul (with a couple of hip-hop tracks thrown in) with a focus on the different aspect of love and relationships from a consistently adult point of view. The fact that he has a good voice and excellent flow accompanied by strength in production and writing has us grateful that he would give this out for nothing. One listen to his remake of Sign Your Name with Leon Thomas III will confirm his talent.
