If ‘Blues Hip Hop‘ is on the rise, then C.S. Armstrong is a name you’re sure to remember – diving deep into the heart-wrenching soul of bare-all blues, gripping gospel and ready to tell you the Truth Be Told.
For anyone and everyone who says “they don’t make music like this anymore,” you need to hear ‘Rain In The Ghetto‘. Armstrong renders and recreates the raw yet celestial sounds of rhythm and blues with deep-edgy vocals, before taking listeners on a tough trip down memory lane in ‘Real (Where I Come From)‘.
Simply unparalleled, merging emotion-fuelled melodies with gritty gasps of relief, the Houston-based artist reveals all; everywhere from an abusive upbringing and overcoming leukaemia to surviving years on-end in the army, to finally finding his feet and thus, the ultimate “reason to be here.”
And for this 32-year-old artist on the rise, that ‘Reason‘ couldn’t be any clearer to listeners – it is, and always will be, music.
