Pell Limbo on LP
Up and coming rapper Pell – born and raised in New Orleans but forced, at 13, to relocate with his family to Jackson, Mississippi when Hurricane Katrina hit and destroyed their home - has been praised for fusing precise lyricism and soulful singing into an eclectic sound, entirely his own.
Turning to music both as an emotional outlet and a way to make friends in a new city, he pursued it through high school, college, and while working day jobs; including his first, at the local Dollar Store - a place he eventually paid homage to in the first track on his debut album. Pell rose to prominence following the release and subsequent critical acclaim of that very album: Floating While Dreaming.
Now Limbo, his follow-up project, is set to be released in partnership with Federal Prism, the label founded and run by visionary TV On The Radio producer Dave Sitek, also known for his work with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, David Bowie, and Kanye West. "I would describe it as futuristic soul," Pell explains. "It's something that definitely resonates with people when they listen to it for the first time because it has an air of nostalgia." Featuring the Sitek-produced lead single "Café Du Monde."
