Harry Gray is an up and coming artist based out of Washington, D.C. whose affinity for Soul, Funk, RnB, and Classic Hip-Hop contribute to his current sound. Not one to be concerned about mainstream music media’s perception of his work, Harry focuses on sounds that evoke almost spiritual responses from him. His first project, “The Color Purple”, samples some of music’s great soul artists in such a unique and novel manner while also spotlighting lesser known talented musicians that listeners will be pleasantly surprised by what they hear.
Harry’s Rusty Beatz produced single, “Tell ‘Em”, focuses on the ever increasing gun violence in urban areas and the toll that it can take on inner city youth in poverty stricken communities. As if almost conversing with her himself, Harry samples Ms. Lauryn Hill’s “Tell Him” with enigmatic precision, allowing the melody and lyrics to gracefully dance a pas de deux.
As if the track wasn’t enough, Harry has just dropped the incredible PAPERFACE-directed animated visual and we’ve got it ready for you to watch right now! After that, be sure to connect with Harry on IG so you’ll know when he’ll be releasing more DOPE music like “Tell ‘Em”.
