One thing we love is pressing play on an artist submission and being blown away by an up and coming artists talent. Welcome Chris Batson to The A&R Report. After checking out his soundcloud, its safe to say this dude has something special. He’s a triple threat; singing, writing, and producing all of his music. Did I mention he does it skillfully? Batson has this gritty edge to his voice that captivates you, all while soothing your soul with his falsetto. The versatility of his vocals, songwriting, and production won’t allow you to pigeonhole him into one genre. When you press play below you’ll here R&B, Soul, Alternative, and pop. Check out Chris Batson’s offerings below and let us know if you think he’s an artist to watch.
