James Tillman & His Excellent Brazilian Infused Soul

Hailing from DC, residing in NYC, and having recorded his upcoming project in Brazil, New School vocal jazz student James Tillman is quickly proving himself to be a force.

Citing classic soul greats like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers as influences, his sound also touches on modern talents like Jose James and Michael Kiwanuka, while still holding an irrefutable air of the tropical and tranquil Brazilian charm.

His debut EP, Shangri-La, is just around the corner with an April 29 release; lucky for you, we’ve been able to dig up three out of the four tracks for you to cozy up with.

Watch the video for “And Then” above and listen to “Shangri-LA” and “Love Within” below!
