Rising R&B Artist Adam Wilson Reveals Stunning New EP Awake

Rising R&B artist Adam Wilson has returned with his brand-new EP, Awake, a six-track collection of smooth, soulful R&B that captures the essence of what the genre is all about – strong, emotive vocals and stunning storytelling. Having already made an impression with previous projects Dear So & So and Dreams, the Chicago-born, LA-based artist looks set to continue his ascent in the R&B scene with this new release.

Playing violin since the age of four and finding his voice and picking up other instruments along the way, Adam has been involved in music his whole life. This lifelong experience is captured on Awake, which is entirely self-produced. The lead single “Uninvolved”, which provides one of the many highlights on the EP, showcases not only Adam’s polished production skills but also his captivating vocals and impressive songwriting abilities as he opens up about recognizing an unhealthy relationship, drawing on themes of self-realization and reflection. With an emotion-evoking piano over modern beats, the track recalls the likes of James Blake and Majid Jordan.

Speaking further on “Uninvolved”, Adam says, “I was living in NYC, and I walked through a random park and ran into someone that I was seeing with another man’s arm around her. I went back to my Brooklyn apartment distraught, and the song was produced and written within three hours. It all came so naturally.

“‘Uninvolved’ is about coming to a point of realizing that a relationship is no longer good for you. Being in a relationship, to me, is about growing together and encouraging each other’s best selves. This song is about self-worth and knowing that you deserve more in a relationship and that sometimes cutting things off is the best thing you can do for your health and happiness.”

With another impressive body of work under his belt, Adam is undoubtedly one to watch out for in the R&B scene. And with plans to keep new content coming, it’ll be exciting to see what’s next from this hugely talented artist. “Uninvolved” and the rest of Awake are available to buy/stream now on all platforms.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

Mel the Prophet- The 5 things I wish someone told me when I first started: 

Expect no support from the people you want or expect support from. I was always a good person and a person who was “friends” with many people, not just around me or in my community but all around and thought I was going to get support from them because I was doing something good.

INVEST IN YOURSELF: Even though I did invest in myself, I was expecting others to invest in me because of the ideas I had and how beneficial they would be for others.

FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE: As much as I thought I was focusing on the bigger picture, I actually wasn’t. I was rushing the process to become what I knew I am and I would attempt to force myself and my vision onto people without trusting the process of just doing the work day in and day out.

KNOW WHEN TO SAY NO!: Being a good person can be tiring when you’re attempting to help anyone and everyone. Some people do not align with your mission or purpose. I would give my hand out to anyone who asked for it and then be in a situation where the person or people would just attempt to take advantage of my kindness.

Feel Awful

Vancouver, Canada artist BAINS. has shared a new single called “Feel Awful”. The second single from his upcoming album Punch Drunk, this self-produced offering contains emotive sonics and relatable lyricism- making for an evocative and memorable listen.

BAINS. comes through with captivating lyrics that find the artist at a low point, ruminating over past mistakes and time lost. Also themed around his love/ hate relationship with alcohol, the honesty of this single’s subject matter shines through and impacts the listener directly.

Production-wise, “Feel Awful” is engagingly dynamic, with bouncy percussion and grooving bass dropping in mid-way through the first verse and crescendoing in the chorus to create a gripping effect. Drawing the listener into the song’s atmosphere as it builds, the production here is sharply-crafted and vivid.
