Whereas some recording artists feel entitled to attention and praise simply for cutting a record, Booth newcomer Citizen Shade knows that every minute on this earth is a precious thing. Thus, with the title of his first feature, he courteously tells listeners, “Thank You for Your Time.” Even more impressive than the Greensboro singer/songwriter’s manners, however, are his musical chops. Not only does Shade handle vocal duties, showcasing a rich baritone as well as an ear-pleasing falsetto, he also crafts the record’s intricate live-band beat in conjunction with Jared Matthews and Jake Crenshaw. Thank You is just a promo single, but fans can, of course, keep it locked for more from this talented newcomer.
