Discovery: Paul Babe

Paul Babe is an American R&B artist who takes his cues from Prince and cowboy imagery in sultry new track Lasso.

By Graeme Smith

It was the unexpected imagery that drew me to Lasso. It’s not what I’ve grown used to listening to outside of a country setting and it’s expertly used to describe the capturing feeling of a relationship. The delicate, Prince-like, delivery of Paul’s soulful vocals are what kept me listening to the end. Lasso is bedroom music of the highest order.

Paul describes himself as “like Voldemort” hiding in the forest getting stronger while recording his track which is yet another reason I think he’s not the typical R&B artist. Check out Lasso below and make up your own mind.
