The release of his debut album Coming Home saw and homage to 1950s and 60s soul music, with hits like “River”, “Better Man” and “Smooth Sailing” all lending themselves towards Otis Redding and Sam Cooke-esque comparisons. Fast forward to 2018, and the release of his second studio album, Good Thing, showcases the singers range in musicality as he slightly departs from the old soul sound he’s previously embodied, and blends a few worlds into one impressive album. Good Thing spawned early fan-fare with standout singles like “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand”, “Bad Bad News”, and “Beyond”; collectively refreshing yet timely as a whole.
