Northern Californian musician Mr. Grossman releases new EP/mini-album, ‘Novella’
Northern Californian musician Mr. Grossman has announced the release of his new EP/mini-album entitled “Novella”, containing 4 new original tracks where he employs his typically wide-ranging experimental approach. The collection also showcases the artist’s more vulnerable side, as he lyrically turns inward and channels his inner storyteller. “Novella” is best described as “stories about people dealing with past love, needing courage, comfort, and closure.”
In this new mini-album, the eclectic Mr. Grossman turns from the political theme of his first two tracks to the personal. These four songs are about people dealing with love, past and future, looking for courage, comfort and closure. On the opening track Chana Matthews gives voice to a searing portrait of a woman burned by past relationships, daring herself to get back into the game. The second track, Escape, is like an offer of encouragement and solace to the first. The music is a mix of modern R&B and pop, with echoes of Sade, Smokey Robinson and John Legend. There are also classical Easter eggs (Duruflé and Brahms) for good measure.
