Latrell James questions our lives in this crazy world on ‘Today’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Latrell James knows how to keep the flow. Last year the Boston hip-hop artist and producer introduced himself to a widespread audience as the voice behind Cheerios’ national television ad campaign, and in March followed that up with a proper recording of call-and-response anthem “Okay”, a live staple that’s since surpassed 120,000 plays on Spotify. For his latest effort, James has rolled out “Today”, produced by frequent collaborator Tedd Boyd, a soulful indoctrination that tries to make sense of the crazy world around us. “There was a lot going on in the world and in my personal life when I was writing this,” James says. “I just wanted to make sure that I was capturing my feelings while experiencing them.” We’re all sitting here trying to make sense of yesterday and bracing for whatever comes today; James is here putting a lot of these emotions into music, and as usual, does it with a sonic depth and intelligence few can match.
