Steve Ray Ladson shares an emotive new single today titled “Calling Your Name“. Blending R&B, pop and smooth hip hop, he reflects on the universal search for love, and how life as a touring musician can make relationships a struggle. It’s a warm, authentic embrace, that speaks directly to the heart, as a moving and honest reflection.
"This song was inspired and created down in Muscle Shoals, Alabama one evening after a recording session at a friend's home around the table where writing sessions are a norm," Ladson said on how the song came to be.
The soulful pop single builds an authentic and irresistible feel-good hook, displaying Ladson’s masterful vocal performance and musicianship.
“I want people to hear my music and say, it’s authentic and that’s the way music should be,” reflected Ladson. “Remind them of how it used to be and the way it used to sound. Bring back what could feel and when love and music were real. That’s my goal to bring back the real feel.," he added. With COVID-19 bringing the world to a halt, it’s a time more than ever where the world needs feel-good music, and Ladson’s tunes deliver.
“Calling Your Name” comes as the second single off Ladson’s upcoming album, due out on June 19th. His first single, “Do You Know” was released last month.
