Manchester-based soul singer, [ K S R ] continues to pave his way in the R&B world with his debut EP, ‘Unfiltered’, coming out this Friday (22nd March).
The 19-year-old songwriter delivers his lyrics with ease, stylistically paying homage to his influences – D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Miguel – whilst curating his own refreshing sound, achieving a perfect balance of bedroom soul, lo-fi hip-hop and R&B.
‘Headloss’ is the latest single to be released from the upcoming EP, a contemporary approach on neo-soul akin to artists such as Tom Misch, Miguel and Frank Ocean. Released last Thursday, the laid back production oozes pure class, allowing the stunningly refined vocals to shine through.
[ K S R ]’s – real name Roosevelt Kazaula Sigsbert – debut single ‘H / Er’ sparked interest from Konny Kon, one half of Children of Zeus, which set in motion a friendship and musical journey that saw Children of Zeus utilise their 15 years in the music industry to show [ K S R ] the ropes. Since then, the young urban prodigy quit university to focus on music and signed to the label Polarface and received support from online tastemakers such as Gal-dem and Dummy and radio play from BBC 1Xtra.
Following the release of his debut EP, [ K S R ] will perform at his six date UK tour, kicking off at YES in Manchester on the 2nd April.
Too Good to miss, wrap your ears around ‘Headloss’.
