Boomkat Product Review:
Drippin’ with realest ‘90s R&B flava, Devin Morrison’s debut album for Onra’s Nothing But Net label.
“If anyone from Florida tells you that something is « Bussin », it simply means that it’s tasty. Orlando-born Devin Morrison's first solo album on NBN Records, « Bussin » gives you an ill mix of flavors with eclectic inspirations rooted in 90's R&B, Gospel and Funk.
You get fresh-squeezed harmonies inspired by the likes of Take 6 & Commissioned on slow jamz like « It’s Time » and « Bussin », melodies that pierce like spears on « No » and drums that bite like gator jaws on the G Funk infused banger « The Struggle Iz Real » featuring Daz Dillinger.
Singer/Songwriter/Composer, Devin Morrison aims to show the world the sweet sound of Florida that it has yet to hear while collaborating with the finest voices the R&B, such as Grammy Award nominees KING, super talented singer from L.A. Joyce Wrice on the classic R&B duet « With You », or seasoned originals like Ace Hashimoto (aka BrandUn DeShay) on the futuristic sounding « Guaranteed ».
The opening track « It's Time » features a guitar performance from Devin's father, a solo recording artist in the early 90's known as Dah-Vi and ends up on a personal note with the spiritual jam « Fairytale » (featuring vocals from Devin's older brother, Lakks Mable) and the introspective « Love Yourself ».
As Devin tweeted, « As long as I'm alive, R&B shall be as well ». The expectations are high for this Floridian creative, and Devin Morrison is here to live up to his own.”
