Welcome to Jackson Lundy's Amalgamation of Sound [Premiere]

We're excited today because we have an exclusive premiere from emerging singer/songwriter Jackson Lundy. In the vein of Ones to Watch favorites such as Brasstracks, Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei, and others of that ilk, Lundy is able to fuse R&B, Jazz, Folk, and many other genres into unescapable grooves. Originally from New York, the songwriting major at Berklee College of Music is gearing up to release his debut EP later this year.

Lundy dropped his first single, "Calypso", in 2017. It's a mellow groove driven by smooth guitar licks, a silky bass line, and trumpets. A preview of the type of vibe he's capable of. Today, we have the premiere of two new songs from Lundy, "Loverboy" and "Me & You." Both songs are co-produced with Brasstracks and Jake Carter. "Loverboy" is a joyous love letter featuring the iconic upbeat horns of Brasstracks. Speaking on the song, Lundy says:

"Had a real blast throughout the making of "loverboy". When my friend/collaborator Jake Carter recorded key bass on  the tune, I kept urging him to be goofier with it and not to hold back. I wanted every lyric and instrument to represent  my idea of "dumb love". The song is about being so enamored with someone, you'd do anything for them. It's a bit childish and reckless.  One of the last additions to the song was the horn line played by Ivan Jackson who also produced the song. At first I  was shocked by them and how abruptly they come in. Now that line is probably my favorite part of the song. It  matches the songs intent perfectly."

"Me & You" is different but just as good. Taking a more mellow approach to this song, Lundy said:

"'Me & You' is a song that I wanted to make feel warm and comforting. Similar to a good relationship, just meant to be  easy. It's a really nostalgic song to me, a visual song with washed out colors. Kinda like the two kids who fall in love in Wes  Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom."

We're very excited to premiere these songs and we can't wait for Jackson Lundy's EP to arrive. In the meantime, stream "Loverboy" and "Me & You" below:
