ThisisRnB recently caught up with 3x Grammy nominated songwriter Claude Kelly for an in-depth interview. In this clip Claude talks about flourishing R&B singer Luke James.
“I want more people to see Luke do what he does … the more people that see him live and what he can do, they are going to be blown away. Luke can sing anybody out of the water…and he is charming, he’s a star, he has stage presence, he’s a cool dude, very humble, very nice. If all’s fair in this world, he’ll get the shot that he deserves, and he’ll be a very successful artist.”
Claude is not only a huge fan of Luke, but they have collaborated together on 3 songs for the New Orleans native’s debut album. “They are R&B records, and the focus was his voice, everyone else is trying to be slick, auto-tune it up…I was like dude just sing! It’s a melody and he is saying honest stuff… it wasn’t complicated.”
Watch as Claude co-signs Luke, and talks about their studio session. Stay tuned for more from our interview with Claude Kelly coming soon!
