Songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Reo Cragun has released a mesmerizing new single “Verizon”. The new track is taken from his full-length independent debut album Diary Of A Loner, available May 20th. Listen to the song now below.
“‘Verizon’ is one of those songs that puts you in a dream state,” explains Cragun. “I’m literally floating over this airy beat and placing you directly into the soundscape of Diary of a Loner. In the song my girl is trying to vocalize something to me while I’m daydreaming and that’s why half of the phrases don’t even rhyme in the first verse. The goal was to make the melody so catchy that the listener wouldn’t even be able to realize.”
On Diary Of A Loner, the Washington-born Cragun surveys life’s ups and downs, trials and tribulations, and losses and victories without filter or fear. Over a handcrafted soundtrack of R&B, alternative, hip-hop, pop, indie, and electronic, he projects his innermost thoughts in widescreen technicolor.
“It resembles a collection of really personal notes,” Cragun reveals. “I tell my story about a lot of the events in my life. These are my journal entries. I’m such an introvert by nature. I always feel as if I’m on the journey by myself. However, I tried to express those feelings on the project. For the first time, I really talk about what happened growing up and what’s going on now.”
