Influenced by the likes of Al Green, and Marvin Gaye, “livelove” is the outstanding debut single from newcomer Clayton.
We're stoked to premiere his first release and for those that love warm, soulful vibes steeped in classic songwriting this song is essential!
Reminiscent in parts to early Raphael Saadiq, “livelove” is an upbeat affair with its hook-laden melodies and a vintage soul vibe evident throughout the track.
Talking via email, Clayton depicts the record as:
a message of positivity meant to remind us that we're all here together and encourage the act of both giving and receiving love.
He deserves high praise not only for the affecting lyrics, but the high level of musicianship heard on his debut (he plays all the live instruments). And of course his wonderful textured tones.
A few plays and you'll be singing along with every line in no time.
Keep your ears wide open for Clayton and his self-described "soul nostalgia" sound in the future.
