As you can imagine, we get more demos and press releases sent to us than we know what to do with it and to be perfectly honest, most of the demo CD’s are not worthy enough to be used as coasters so imagine our delight to actually get something worth sticking on loop. Up and coming soul/R&B artist Kaleem Taylor’s ‘Never’ is one of those tracks that just instantly hits you and says “you know you like me”. The vocals are amazing and reminiscent of those real soulful hits from artists like Maxwell, D’Angelo and Lyden David Hall that are so hard to find on today’s music scene.
20 Year old Kaleem Taylor is originally from West London but has been living in Herfordshire for the past six years and been working one of the best music camps, LiveBase. We will be interviewing Kaleem in our bumper November issue but in the meanwhile, check out Kaleem’s Never on YouTube and grab a free download while it’s still live. It’s such a catchy tune and I expect when the remix Kings and Queen (cough* cough* @Paris Cesvette) get a hold of the vocals, there are going to be more versions of this amazing track.
You can catch Kaleem performing live at QuePasa in Hitchin on Saturday 24th Sept. The night will feature songs from Kaleem’s forthcoming EP Smooth and the good news is entry is free before 9pm, £3 before 11pm and £5 thereafter. Get out and support real artists when you can.
