Laura Roy has some soulful "Company" to give us all • Word Is Bond

Canadian R’n’B/Pop artist Laura Roy is back with a brand new single titled “Company”.  Now based in London, UK she is primed to drop a new EP soon but in the interim, she gives us a taste of what to come in the form of the aforementioned single “Company”. Teaming up with producer GEO, who provides her with the perfect surreal backdrop, Roy proceeds to deliver a sultry performance that is both heartfelt and enticing.  She doesn’t hold back her true feelings on this one as she aims for a direct hit with her expressive vocals. She knows the essence of human connection and doesn’t shy away from displaying her needs.

“Company” serves as the sophomore single off her forthcoming project FORTE.

 

Laura became well known for her versatility as a songwriter, writing everything from Folk-Pop to R&B/Soul. Her debut EP (released July 2016) contained 6 songs infused with slick, synth-pop, soulful melodies and anthemic hooks. It was written and recorded in Toronto and New York City with producers Adam King, Joel Stouffer (Dragonette) and Ari Leff (LAUV). Now based in London, England, Laura has been unravelling a more vulnerable side to her songwriting and is focusing more on her soulful roots.

Top 5 Instrumental submissions for 1st Week March • Word Is Bond

For the 1st week in March, we got some interesting offerings for Y’all. Another set of 5 slamming instrumentals to vibe to. Sit back, relax and dig in.

OtterNotBe (aka Will Chambless) is an up-and-coming musician and producer from Birmingham, AL. Influenced by jazz and funk from a young age. OtterNotBe “Vice Versa” is a laid-back joint that is groovy and musically pleasing. Get his full  EP here .

 

 

Jonathan Cloud serves us the intro to his newly-released instrumental project, “Tokyo Donuts.”  This project is based solely off of Japanese source material for samples. Check it out.

 

 

Young Citrus drops his latest track “lovesick” to share his love of music and to give listeners a familiar feeling of 90’s hip-hop nostalgia. Inspired by Mura Masa’s track with the same title and vocal samples, Citrus’ track takes a much simpler approach with a few drum loops and heavy 808s. For the Orange County-raised producer, the title “lovesick” aims to touch base with that universal feeling of loving something or someone so much that it hurts.

 

GEO’s “Mágica” is a celebration of his love for Latin music. The producer who listened to jazz as a child and later got hooked on Bossa. This experience greatly influenced his production style which the listener can hear on “Magica”. Exotic, groovy and well crafted.

 Producer Soul School gives us a taste of his mindstate on “Fukui”. Laid back drums, rolling jazz pianos all laced together in the 90s style.
