The One To Watch
Reuben James - Closer ft. Sophie Faith, Jay Prince & Carrtoons
This week’s One To Watch comes from Reuben James.
British singer and virtuoso pianist Reuben James has released latest his single from his hotly tipped forthcoming mixtape. Featuring Brighton-born singer Sophie Faith, rapper Jay Prince and New York bassist Carrtoons, Closer is a crisply executed slice of soulful R&B, which once again demonstrates James’ ear for catchy hooks and smartly-crafted, infectious melodies.
With a sound that blends influences from the likes of Frank Ocean, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Robert Glasper, Closer is the third single to be released from James’ mixtape, due for release this summer, and follows the neo-soul cut Tunnel Vision, which featured Tom Misch on guitar and vocals from Native Dancer’s Frida Touray & British singer-songwriter Daley, and 2020’s summer jam BBQ Energy, which welcomed the talents of Adam Flowers and trumpeter Keyon Harrold.
