Put aside your comic books as the Soul Powered Nerd Esco Williams comes with another mind-blowing musical offering. Featuring six tracks of unpretentious soul and r&b, The INTROduction EP is an ear-teaser for the artist’s upcoming album.
Esco Williams is a vocalist/singer/songwriter whose presence is reminiscent of Cee-LO Green, Aloe Bacc, and Al Green, to name a few. This Liverpool geek is part of the Sense of Sound Choir. His songs have also played on BBC Radio 1xtra, FLAVA, and AKA TV. He has performed with hip-hop legend The RZA, DEAD PREZ, and toured with smooth jazz icon Brian Culbertson.
Opening track I Want U More opens is an easy-listenable track with a lot of sexiness. Esco’s vocal shines through as it perfectly belts out on the right notes.
An ideal soundtrack for late night dinners, Dreamin’ is a musical fusion of r&b and jazzy horns. Press play and let this track serenade and drift softly into your subconscious.
A personal favorite, About U (SweetestKisses) is a saccharine ballad. This track has its own style and pace letting each verse linger and melt in your ears. DayOne Remix ft. Sha_Do paints a stark contrast from the previous track as its electro, futuristic melodies take you on a steady party high.
Wrapping up the EP is About U pt.II (So Cold). This hypnotic piece features prominent beats that will make you want to dance.
Esco Williams’ The INTROduction EP might just be the best r&b/soul album I’ve ever encountered. The tracks here are radio-polished, they make you want to move but does not cloud your ears with noise. Williams’ style is calm and sexy, and this may just be his lucky ticket to stardom.
