Cris Cab Red Road Album Release.

Image

Cris Cab has officially released his latest mixtape, Red Road & it’s gotta be my favorite thus far!

The newly released album features nine songs, one of them is probably the best cover of Monsters of Men’s ‘Little Talks’ that I’ve ever heard, and the rest are originals worth listening to -on repeat.

Once again, Cris collaborated with his mentor Wyclef Jean, this time on ‘Another Love’ which is one of my favorite songs on the album. But who am I kidding? I’m seriously obsessed with all nine songs. They’re that good. He also did a collab with Mike Posner on ‘Colors’, his second single off the mixtape. Check out the video below.

Cris just began the two-month Light It Up Tour with Collie Buddz & New Kingston today. They’re first show is in Washington, D.C. tonight.

To download Red Road  & see when he’s going to be playing a show in your city, go to criscab.com or visit iTunes.

Cris Cab at Grand Central.

 

A little over a year ago I featured Cris Cab as my Artist of the Week, last week the unimaginable occurred. Not only was I lucky enough to watch him perform live, but I got to sit down with the young up-and-coming singer and ask him a few questions.

Check out the footage below from last week’s performance at Grand Central & my one-on-one with Cris after the show!

Cris Cab; Pumped Up Kicks.

There’s nothing I love more than a good remake of a great song. Let me rephrase that, a great remake of a great song & Miami’s own Cris Cab accomplished just that with his creative version of Foster The People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’.

Check out his version below & tell me what you think! This kid is fire!

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: CRIS CAB.

Interview with Deco Drive..check.

Attend High School graduation..check.

Release first EP..check.

Just in time for new summer jams, I introduce to you Cris Cab. The 18-year-old Miami native who just walked across the stage at  Coral Gables Senior High’s graduation days ago (literally) has just released his first EP.

With his smooth sound, reggae style, mellow attitude, and some help from Pharrell I don’t doubt that Cris Cab will be Miami’s next big thing. 

Yup, that’s right. Pharrell introduced Cris in December of last year to a crowd of people poolside one night at Arkadia in the Fontainebleau where Cris performed a few songs solo as well with The Neptunes & N.E.R.D. star.

Six months later, Cris Cab has released his first EP titled FOREWORD after 2 years of working on the album & ONLY today can you download his entire album FOR FREE on his website. I checked it out & I love it. Download it! Cause I say so ;)

He’s a cross between Shwayze (You know..Baby would you be my Corona & lime?) & Bob Marley (a Cuban-American, 18-year-old Bob Marley with no dreads).

Check out his site & download the EP here: http://criscab.com/ & watch his official video for his song ‘Good Girls’ & his awesome remake of ‘All Of The Lights’ below! I also added the video for ‘My Life’ cause I just couldn’t help myself. Someone pass me a drink & build me a hammock cause I want to be on vacation with Cris Cab right now!

Tell me what you think!
