Here’s a hypothetical situation: you’ve been fiending for some new R&B music but don’t feel the need to listen to a track about texting with emoticons. Let’s also say you’re trying to find an artist that’s about to blow up like Mr. West at an awards show. Well then, not so hypothetically, I’d like to point you in the direction of Avery Storm. His new single, My Lady, has Storm illustrating his own affection for a woman in gripping prose. The piano-laced production supplied by Nefu compliments the Jersey native, who shows his complete vocal range in describing how “no other girl can hold [his] heart.” Storm’s recently released and aptly titled mixtape, Category 5, presented in affiliation with DJ Green Lantern and Scram Jones, is out now (did I forget to mention it was free? And dope?). We can only hope this will be the first step in a long career from this promising artist. Stay tuned to DJBooth.net for all the latest on Storm’s 2010 debut, Shotgun Love.
