Carlos Vara – Numb
Carlos Vara just released his debut single, Numb. The 20 year old artist from Tennessee shows A LOT of emotion in this one. You can feel the pain in his voice, reminiscent of one of my favorite neo soul artists, Allan Rayman.
The moment after 0:45 reminded me of something Chance the Rapper would do. The instrument elements are super natural and the harmony with Carlos’ voice is beautifully melancholic.
Carlos grew up in South Carolina. His father was a paster. He moved to Nashville to pursue music midway through his senior year of high school. His music represents the strong emotions he’s gone through in the past two years, filled with self discovery.
Next, he’s releasing a music video next week, so stay tuned. Listen to Numb by Carlos Vera below.
