Dallas, TX-based singer/songwriter Clayton Morgan has released the follow-up single to his critically acclaimed debut “Taste For Love”. On his new track, “The Beat Is Calling Me”, Morgan has expanded his sound and injected more energy, offering a fitting successor to his first effort.
Clayton Morgan – The Beat is Calling Me
Born into a musical family, Morgan is well suited to carry on this torch. His father Eddie Daniels sang baritone in The Four Sonics, and this no doubt informs the R&B and soul elements found in Morgan’s music. While his first single showcased these elements well, his recent follow-up finds him exploring his dance and electronic sensibilities with refreshing results.
After few cycles of building to the instrumental crescendo and returning to the verse the song climaxes energetically, combining all sonic elements heard thus far and finishing on the instrumental beat. While Morgan is a talented vocalist, the beat is far and away the star of this song, which is perhaps appropriate, given the title. Regretfully, the vocals end up almost bringing the song down a bit, as the track could have shined greater from a better vocal performance. With that said; however, there seems to be nothing else to critique. The beat and production are both excellent, and vastly outweigh any potential objection to the vocal performance.
All in all, “The Beat Is Calling Me” is a fantastic second effort for Morgan. It’s clear that he has a wide artistic range and is only just beginning to explore the extent of his potential. Previous fans will appreciate his growth, and his newer sound is sure to gain him more fans as well. Certainly any praise and attention this talented up-and-coming artist receives is well deserved, and we already can’t wait to hear more.
