Stay is Ed Charles latest Funk addled RnB Soul track with the perfect pinch of parody. I’m not sure if the parody was intended or it was just Ed Charles playful demeanour at work, but I dug it anyway. Stay is the title track from Charles’ upcoming LP which is due to be released in Spring 2018, he’s kindly left us the single to get hooked on his sound in the time being.
Through his debut single Charles’ fuses the warmth of the cacophonic instrumentals with a high-vibe vocal energy that nods slightly towards romanticism through the eyes of an RnB Lothario. The Woodstock, NY based writer and producer’s passion is palpable through every track in his back catalogue and it’s pretty refreshing to hear his playful style. The audible influences behind Ed Charles sound include the likes of The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac.
