It feels like alternative R&B and soul have been all the rage here lately, and with Nashville being described as the “It City,” we’re staying on top of the trends by bringing you news of night filled with both kinds of music. Retro pop crooner Max Frost will be coming through for a show at The High Watt on Feb. 13, with a support from local singer Levi Ray, and we’ve got a pair of tickets up for grabs. So read on for more info about these two songbirds after the jump, and try your luck at our contest. After all, this show is the day before Valentine’s Day, so maybe you’ll luck out and get a free gift for you and your bae.
Max Frost started his musical career by breaking into the vintage blues scene in Austin, TX, before he realized that he could combine the beloved genre with more current trends, like hip-hop, R&B and electronica. The outcome from the talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer is danceable, soul-infused pop tunes that blend several genres into something refreshing and new but still have that retro feel, mostly due to his smooth, charismatic voice. After releasing his breakout single “White Lies” in 2013, which lit up The Hype Machine and garnered praise from the likes of Paste, Frost toured with Wild Child, Gary Clark Jr., and Fitz & The Tantrums. Now he’s back on his own headlining tour in support of his most recent EP, Intoxication. Check out the video for the standout track “Withdrawal” below, to get you hyped for Max’s upcoming stop in Nashville.
Nashville local and MTSU alum Levi Ray started out playing guitar for different acts around town before dipping his toes in the waters of chilled out, ambient R&B and producing mixtapes, the last of which was released in 2012. However, he just dropped a new single featuring local rapper Jung Youth, and, if that banger is any indication, it is lining up to be good year for Ray.
