This album popped up on my Instagram feed as recommended by a mutual friend. Durand performs as a backup singer for Eryka Badu and collaborates with some of the biggest names in modern R&B. I immediately went to his previous album to keep the vibe going. On a day when the future of our country has never seemed so uncertain, it was great to find another new, great artist to follow. We need artists to inspire and be inspired now more than ever and I’m grateful for whatever new experiences they can provide.
