Piers James has that soulful touch.
The producer-songwriter-singer (and a whole lot more) has an eclectic style, one that picks up on hip-hop and R&B influences.
Hazy, laid back rhythms set against his purring vocal, each track arrives with an aura of honesty.
Two part project 'A Dying Breed' launches with a new EP shortly, and the Ipswich-born, London-based excels on his new track.
'Can't Be My Girl' has that relaxed Anderson .Paak feel but with some UK grit added, too, a song about empowerment that marks Piers out as a feminist ally.
Dismissing social expectations, 'Can't Be My Girl' is a love song to independence, an urge for others to embrace themselves as they truly are.
Piers explains: “In this superficial world that we live in nowadays, both men and women get so wrapped up in the how-to-be, what we should wear and what we should act like. Women get it a lot harder than men, this track is my response to that, it’s what’s on the inside that we find the most attractive.”
