Crafting smooth, seductive R&B comes naturally for Brooklynite musician Greg Matthews, or Yellow Shoots. He grew up in Philadelphia, where he dove headfirst into the city's jazz, hip-hop, and R&B scenes while performing gospel music at churches around the city and studying jazz guitar, giving him a keen ear for quality melodies and hushed, but immersive production - all of which are present on his debut single 'Tame You'. It's taken from his forthcoming self-produced EP More Alive, out in October, and in a world where it seems like there are a flurry of new alt-R&B artists emerging every day, it's Matthews' diverse musical background and influences (Genesis, Yes, D'Angelo) that make him stand out amongst the pack. Stream 'Tame You' below!
