Brooklyn bred creator Cal Maro is here with sophomore single ‘Juliet’. The Charlotte, NC born artist grew up on music, surrounded by the classics – ranging from Michael Jackson to Fleetwood Mac.
“It is the quintessential romantic moment – heavy, deep, wide, fast and slow at the same time,” said Cal Maro. “The scene is set with all the fantasized elements in the background and movements in the foreground, alluding to some of which first invoked those feelings (Usher’s 8701, Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Romeo + Juliet’) when I was a boy and dreaming of what love might be like, and scored with that type of cinematic production and energy. I wanted to capture all of that at once as best I could.”
Cal experimented with his sound through playing in many bands, dabbling in hardcore, rock, folk and indie before finally stepping into his true love for groove and melody, namely soul and R&B. In 2015, he began developing his Cal Maro project.
Taking emotive delivery of all that matters in a relationship, Cal’s expressive recompense, brings you along for a ride in spectrums. Impressions, love, lust, depth, hope, and the often uninvited revelries that dash such happiness.
Taking influence from artists like D’Angelo, Frank Ocean, and James Blake, Cal’s sound is a rebrand of soul, bringing new energy and life to the genre.
