Our pal Jesse Boykins III told us we needed to hear this cat named Chris Turner, so looked him up. Chris is a super talented vocalist from Oakland that also happens to be Bilal’s backup singer. After a little chat with Chris, we stumbled onto his band, ERIMAJ. The core of the band consists of drummer and band leader Jamire Williams, trombonist and composer Corey King, and of course, Chris Turner on the vocals.
“Conflict Of A Man” is the group’s first single with this hazy dreamscape of a video directed by none other than miss Tiombe Lockhart. The sound is jazzy and soulful, with vocals reminiscent of Bilal. All these New School alums are on some serious voltron status. Go ahead, y’all. Sounding great.
