Rio W Guthrie's newest release "Better Man." acts as a musical farewell to the old self, narrating a tale of personal transformation.
The U.K.-based artist borrows from diverse sonic backgrounds such as r&b, reggae, and soul. For "Better Man.", he's gone down the path of neo soul - to the point where we're vividly reminded of Maxwell thanks to the emotion pouring out of his vocals and the colorful percussive arrangements guiding the rhythm. The rich and uplifting chords from the keys enhance the central theme of transformation in the track, complemented by Guthrie's exceptional songwriting.
