In recent years, music has become more and more manufactured with the development of technology like autotune and electronic instruments. Many people are still craving songs that are vulnerable and human, that speak to the artist’s soul. C.LACY is a singer-songwriter who creates R&B music with a pop twist, and he’s revolutionizing the industry by creating music that is real and relatable.
C.LACY is passionate about creating R&B music that feels vulnerable, which contrasts with what most other people are doing in the genre. While confessional songs and love ballads might top other charts, most R&B is not very emotional. “I feel my emotions deeply, and that’s what I want to write songs about. I want people to understand me when they hear my work.” One of the things that C.LACY is most open about is his mother. She raised him and his four siblings alone, without his dad in the picture. “We didn’t have brand name things or expensive electronics growing up. It taught me to be grateful for what I have.” He’s also found a deep kinship with and respect for women. “My mother taught me how to treat women correctly and see them on a personal level. Not all men have that, and it’s really sad.”
C.LACY has released four singles, each more personal than the last. “I want to put myself in my music,” he said. “It’s all about self-expression for me.” Showing who he is to his listeners has really made it easier for them to connect to him. He has over 30,000 followers on Instagram, and over 30,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. “What I’m doing is really working. I know that my fans are inspired by what I have to say and keeping it real has really benefited me.”
If you’re looking for vulnerable R&B music from a real artist, you can listen to C.LACY on Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud, and YouTube.
