Last Night In NYC…Invading the local NY entertainment & music hotspot, SOB’s, artist Bryson Tiller brought his entire T R A P S O U L project to the stage, as he performed for not ONE, but TWO of his ‘SOLD OUT’ shows.
Guided us right down Tiller Ave, Bryson delivered hits from his album like: “Rambo”, Ten Nine Fourteen”, “For However Long”, and more along with his major record that broke his stardom streak, “Don’t”.
During Bryson’s set, the talented artist kept his signature mysterious vibe visually in effect, with subtle flashes of colorful undertones and clouds of smoke, not giving off too much for the visible eye — but just enough to draw you into the feel of love, art, passion and pain of his music. Think, the stages of a T R I P P Y L I F E. A roller-coaster of testimonials.
Congrats to Bryson Tiller on a successful showcase.
T R A P S O U L is available on iTunes HERE.
