Listen, now you all know I don’t go crazy over too many Artist. Many are out, but not many are good. The other day I came across Felixx and I almost LOST MY MIND. First off the boy can SANG. Secondly, he brings a breath of fresh air to the game. Don’t tell him I said this but I think I can actully put his project on and just hit play. (Keep in MIND, I can usually only do that with Aaliyah, Ashanti, Beyonce, Lil Kim and Ty-$-Sign)
To understand Felixx, one must know that he marches to the beat of his own rhythmic drum. Groomed from an early age to be a southern gentleman, the Monroe, Georgia-native has mastered the art of distinction. An impressive hybrid of sophistication and warmth, Felixx’s disposition parallels his approach to music as well. A classically trained singer with influential energy from Mozart, John Mayer, Calvin Richardson, Prince, Justin Timberlake and Miguel, the R&B crooner is one of the few artists today to make records incorporating live instrumentation and does so with convincing passion. His moniker, taken from his birth name Felix Thompson with the addition of an “x,” refers to his “Clark Kent” ability to effortlessly transition from one genre to another while remaining GQ smooth.
Felixx’s self-titled debut EP features the lead single he co-wrote, “Applause.” The instrument-laden track, along with its soulful, brilliant harmonies and thick melodies, was inspired by a relationship. Other standout records include the Hip-Hop flavored “Life of the Party,” while “Give It To Me” is a slick, funky and sexy throwback-flavored offering that flirts on the border of Pop and Rock. Showing musical diversity and seamlessly tying together R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Pop and Rock, Felixx is contemporary art set to music.
