The Wizard of Electro-R&B/Soul, R.LUM.R, is announcing not only his forthcoming EP “AfterImage”, but is also prepping for his tour this summer!
R.LUM.R is a Florida-native, and unlike many artists today, he genuinely has a background in music that gives him a stronger understanding of musical creation. He is well-versed in old school R&B and jazz, growing up in a household that listened to and appreciated the stylings of Sade, George Benson, and more. With breathy yet silky vocals and impactful falsettos strung through intricate lines of synths and beats, we get what is R.LUM.R’s circus of beautiful sounds.
However, though this author of sound describes his music as “R&B/Singer-Songwriter/Soul/ Electronic”, he still does “not want to limit myself”. The range of genres that this artist is able to tackle is extraordinary. He’s a classically trained acoustic guitarist, was inspired by anime like Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist, and even studied Japanese as a second language at Florida State University. If this was not eclectic enough, his musical interests also spanned from listening to Pink Floyd, to Prince, to Debussy, to Massive Attack, and so much more.
NPR Music has pegged him as “a fast-rising, pop-friendly R&B singer whose falsetto is no joke,” and The New York Times chose him for “The Playlist,” and let’s not forget how this young man was the CoverBoy on Spotify’s “Alt R&B” playlist for 6 months!! If that’s not enough praise as is, R.LUM.R’s hit single, “Frustrated,” has accumulated more than than 15 million Spotify streams and counting!
So, it only makes sense that with such love for his music comes excitement for his debut EP, AFTERIMAGE, which is set for release on August 11th, this summer, via PRMD.
Framily, because of you, we were able to give $450 from my last show's tickets to @aclu_nationwide to support their efforts in protecting our freedoms. This is a victory not only for us, but for those who don't have the means to protect themselves. Every little piece matters, so this is huge. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Framily Matters, y'all. 🙌🏾
A poet, a songwriter, a curator of melodies, and a beholder of emotions, R.LUM.R is honestly one of the most talented artists in today’s music hemisphere, and should not be overlooked.
The solo act is also honored and excited to be going on tour this summer, starting in Utah on June 23rd, at the performing at the Bonanza Campout Festival working his way through the states until concluding the road trip with his final performance at the Austin City Limits Festival!
He’s been recognized as the Vevo DSCVR Artist and as the Top 3 Most Added at Urban AC Radio. As part of Vevo’s DSCVR program, he will be one of many upcoming artists that will have the opportunity to create unique content and material at an early stage of his professional career in order to gain awareness and buzz from his fans.
Overall, everyone should be excited for what R.LUM.R has in store for us and for where he is going on his rhythmic journey because his music is enchanting, hypnotic, and breathtaking.
