Taken from his Skydive EP, “Passenger” up with South London soul singer Joel Culpepper on an emotive journey through love and life’s ups and downs with narrative visuals to his impassioned story over a sensual, contemporary bass-thumping bed of sound.
“What I hope stands out is that the audience know I mean it,” Culpepper says of his musical sincerity. “I believe in what I am singing about and love what I’m doing and am enjoying myself. Hopefully people can enjoy it with me. It is my reality show.”
If Joel Culpepper‘s a new name to you, I’d also advise you to dig back through our introduction and his earlier projects The Adventures of Pensmith and Joel Culpepper Meets J. Dilla, but there’s clear, audible growth in his material, with “Passenger” signalling a polished turn in direction on his journey. Watch the official video, directed by Abi Moore, below and stay tuned for more. Skydive is out now.
