Reginald Lamar Williams, known in the music world as R.LUM.R, is a guitarist turned R&B sensation after his debut EP, Afterimage. The six-song tracklist included his most popular song, “Frustrated,” which garnered 30 million streams on Spotify. The artist has performed on shows like “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Rolling Stone,” and has had sessions with the likes of “Genius” and “Paste.”
Recently the artist announced the March 9 release of his next UP, Alterimage, which features acoustic renditions of tracks from Afterimage. The EP is set to feature all six tracks from Afterimage live and in one take, backed by a grand piano and a string quartet, each song with its own unique video.
As the Nashville-based musician is the face of Spotify’s, “The Newness,” he’s premiering the lead video/track list with a live version of “Close Enough” altered. “Close Enough” (altered) features a soulful rendition of the original song in rhythm, melody, and cadence, creating some excitement for the upcoming visual album.
R.LUM.R is set to perform these songs at SXSW, Bonnaroo, Hangout Festival and on his own tour which kicked off in Memphis Feb. 2. It’s safe to say that he’ll be pretty busy this year.
Alterimage is available here.
The Altered version of Close Enough available now everywhere. This song features keys by the very talented Josh Blaylock.
