ALSO ANNOUNCED FOR 2020, THE SURFACING TOUR, 26 HEADLINING DATES ACROSS THE U.S. AND CANADA, OPENING FEB. 20th IN NASHVILLE
The U.S Producer and songwriter R.LUM.R has shared his debut album Surfacing ahead of a massive U.S & Canadian tour. Known for his off-kilter, potent R’n’B electronica – The new album continues in the same vein with a powerful statement of intent.
On Surfacing, he’s not afraid to confront the socio-economic issues that once bound him. Writing candidly about anxiety, depression, self-awareness and self-love, he seeks to turn around the ugliness and loneliness that can limit peoples’ growth at every strata of society. He’s also collaborated with production outfit The Gifted with additional production by Toulouse, KillaGraham, Christoph Andersson, Heavy Mellow, Tim Randolph, Scott Hoffman, and R.LUM.R himself.
“Surfacing is my proudest work to date. It took me almost two years, but now with Surfacing, a lot of these pressing thoughts I’ve had about my blackness, my version of masculinity, mental illness, healing, finding your own path, and more are finally dredged up from what seems like a bottom less ocean, and committed to wax.
I feel like its got it’s own continental shelf; deep enough to dive where the listener may have never gone before, but sonically nice enough that you can stay near the shore and just let its current wash over if that’s all you need from it. Either way, I finally feel like I’m saying not only what I want to say, but what NEEDS to be said, in my own words. I finally feel like I’m Surfacing. Thanx for listening!”
