New Track! Don’t Be Shy – Kane

Kane

As a preview to his debut album, KANE releases his silky smooth offering, Don’t Be Shy.

Oozing with soul and the makings of a sweet R&B slow jam, the British R&B singer showcases weak-at-the-knees vocal over a beat laden with classic guitar riffs and snares, with a more contemporary deep bass backline shining through that perfectly holds each aspect of the track together.

With an equally impressive video in the pipeline, KANE makes his mark with depth and quality to his work. The video, shot in his hometown of Tottenham in London, gives a sincere perspective of the singer and the song itself as the luscious, sweet vocal collides with the raw, inner-city visual surroundings. The result is that of authenticity and somehow gives a new edge to the record that you might have missed on listening.

He may only be in the early stages of his career but this upcomer already has quite a story that has propelled him to his current place in music. At the age of 17, he released his debut E.P Dreams, which resulted in him working with acclaimed songwriter Sam Hook (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Mary J Blige) and releasing Turn It Up featuring Sneakbo. He then went on to perform at DJ Cameo’s Summer Love festival in Cyprus alongside Tinie Tempah before returning to the UK and performing with the likes of J Spades and U.S songstress, Ashanti, at the IndigO2.

Set to have a big impact on the music scene over the coming years, this cute face lays down some strong foundations for what is to come –  have a listen to Don’t Be Shy.
