Chris LeSage "The Prelude"

Chris LeSage "The Prelude"

Sometimes an album just sneaks up on you and blows your mind. I confess that I had not heard of Chris LeSage, but I vaguely remember his past project Silhouette Radio. Last week I received an email about his new ep The Prelude which he dropped via soundcloud and bandcamp on Feb. 29th. I pressed play and was transported to a world of pulsing, soulful, atmospheric R&B.

This album is so compelling and beautiful, and truly deserves your attention. Check out the first track from the ep below.
