Artist On The Rise: LANGSTON – Call Me

Today’s featured song came by way of our suggestion box. Now, I have to confess that I’m not a big fan of contemporary R&B/pop style of music. I have nothing against it; I’m just not drawn to that specific sound. So when I clicked on the YouTube link provided to me and heard the first ten seconds of this song, my first instinct was to pass. But that would not be a fair assessment. Aside from the fairness issue, something about Langston’s voice kept me listening. By about twenty seconds in, I acknowledged that this guy has a beautiful voice. The song is definitely radio friendly, easily something you’d hear on the current charts. I enjoyed his approach to the song; his phrasing has a casual feel, and he effortlessly transitions in and out of his falsetto.

I wound up listening to this song three times through. Each time, it grew on me a bit more. You might want to take note of the name ‘Langston’, because it’s quite possible that he’s going to have a huge career in mainstream music.
