Cameron Rafati

Upon first glance of the track below, you'll no doubt think Cameron Rafati has listened to a lot of John Legend in his lifetime, but don't be too quick to judge - the boy has an impressive range of sound. On his self-titled debut album, Rafati goes from sounding like John Legend ("1 In 10") to producing a perfect Jack Johnson voice that is seemingly swank-singing to a Sondre Lerche number ("Battles") to David Byrne ("Dirty Conversations"). The tracks themselves are not only entirely distinct form one another, they're all completely solid. The more I explore the album, the more I find myself impressed. Check him out.
