Houston-based R&B producer/singer Bobby Earth is back with his first solo project since his independently released 2013 mixtape The Book of Genesynth. PROGRESSION is an entirely self-produced, 6-track EP, and it is Earth’s first solo project to be released on the Milky Wayv label. The EP released August 28th, and it has already received over 10,000 plays and counting, thanks to a strong following, both in Houston and on the Internet, not to mention a cosign from GRAMMY-nominated soul band The Internet.
Much like his last project, PROGRESSION‘s subject matter orbits two main planets: love and outer space. Only this time, we see these experiences through the lens of a more mature 21-year-old Bobby, versus that of his former collegiate 18-year-old self. Sonically, PROGRESSION forms an experimental blend of soul, hip-hop, jazz, and electronic music.
Additionally, Earth rounds up artists from different musical backgrounds to complement his smooth vocals and eclectic soundscapes. The EP features Kintaro of the Internet, Brice Blanco, guitarist Chris “Choice” Sommers, and drummer Tarron Overshown.
