Bradenton-born space-age R&B singer Reggie Williams – R.LUM.R to listeners – cut his musical teeth in Florida, abandoning classical guitar studies at Florida State University to move to Orlando and try his hand at writing his own music. Sadly, Williams found himself in a musical rut in the City Beautiful, not quite finding his own voice, stuck in unsatisfying gigs; luckily this frustration inspired his aptly-named breakout single, “Frustrated,” and opened up whole new worlds of sound for the singer. “Frustrated” was the true birth of R.LUM.R.’s sound – huge synths weaving in and out of thick, nodded-out percussion and a falsetto to die for. Now in Nashville, R.LUM.R has honed his sound incredibly as demonstrated by the recent Afterimage mini-album. R.LUM.R. is a late-night zone tripper along the lines of Blood Orange, 6lack and H.E.R. Welcome back, even if it’s just for one night.
