BYRON MAJORS is a South African soul man who recently graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston; before that he was a member of the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir. Byron says that his influences were Stevie Wonder, Prince and Marvin Gaye but of his music philosophy he says: “My dream is for all of music to live under one umbrella, in one home. To me, genres in music are like racism in society”. He calls his own sound ‘soultronic‘ and you can judge how apt that is via his single ‘May Flower’ which is due out on April 15th
The song is brash soul beater that’s a perfect vehicle for Byron’s quirky voice. It’s certainly distinctive… soulful, sure but refreshingly different. The usual download portals will allow you to investigate.
