The hook of Kaleem Taylor’s music is his arresting voice. He’s capable of the low, black-coffee tones of Kwabs (‘Broken Mirrors’) and the angelic grace notes of Sampha (‘Still Love’) – and, like them, he’s equally good at making you sit up and stare at your music player in surprise.
The Hertfordshire vocalist has made appearance on club tracks by Tchami (‘Missing You’), Isla, Snakehips and others. Just last month he released his Version EP, and it’s a marvel of supple neo-soul.
Taylor told Fringe Frequency that he has big plans for 2018, which include releasing videos to support Version, a new EP due before the summer and a tour. Taylor says: “I counted so many blessing in 2017, but my aim is always to do better. It’s a challenge I’m ready for. Growth is key. From the new music, you can expect to see that growth as well as an even more personal approach in the songs.”
