Nashville R&B/pop singer @RLumRmusic is on the bubble with major label release “Cold”

R.LUM.R., “Cold”

A lot has happened since last October when I first wrote about R&B/pop singer/songwriter R.LUM.R.  He signed to Island Records, has had millions of plays on Spotify, has been written up in Rolling Stone, is being booked for festivals… yeah the kind of stuff to which most performers look forward.  And his debut album Surfacing is out on October 4/19.  It’s been preceded by the single “Cold”, the story of when romance simply dies in a relationship, in this case reassuring that it’s nobody’s fault.  R.LUM.R.’s voice is equally effective when it’s quiet or soaring, and “Cold” offers both.  It’s for those who like their R&B with alternative flavours, and could do well on open-minded radio stations who like to play newer talent before other stations.  “Cold” is very convincing and would likely be best heard live in a small club setting.

Nashville pop/soul singer @RLumRmusic’s “With My Words” is one to watch

R.LUM.R., “With My Words”

Take a classic song structure and pair it with a great vocal and heartfelt lyrics and you have “With My Words” by Nashville pop/soul singer R.Lum.R.  He’s definitely one to watch for with this song.  Reminiscent particularly of Sam Smith’s “Like I Can” at times, R.Lum.R. often sings in the same timbre that has made many of Sam’s songs so successful.  But that’s where the comparison stops.  Taking cues perhaps from an un-enhanced Tory Lanez kind of style that is somehow channeled via 90’s R&B like from Jodeci or Brian McKnight, with songs like “With My Words”, R.Lum.R. could easily sneak into the fan realm of singers like Miguel with his personable, honest branding.
