Cal Maro – “Water” (Music Video Premiere!)

Cal Maro is a new project by Charlotte singer/songwriter/producer Tyler Brown. We are pleased to give you the visuals for ‘Water’, the first single from the forthcoming self-titled record, arriving March 18th through Brooklyn’s Yüng Wolf Productions. “Cal Maro” follows Brown’s 2013 release of “The Hollows”.

Cal Maro is the summation of the journey of an artist who has endured a ten year career of many reinventions, and is unlike anything else in Brown’s catalog. With ‘Water’, the melancholic acoustic sounds heard in his early work have been exchanged for soulful electronics creating a dreamy yet rousing soundscape that still retains the organic composition heard in “The Hollows“. The choice for Brown to abandon his given name and become Cal Maro was one of conviction. He told us, “adopting a different name has pushed me to be my most creative self as opposed to my most honest self.” With this project, Brown is breaking away from the singer-songwriter stigma and stepping into his own as an artist. The new voice of Cal Maro drives ‘Water’, riding smoothly on top of full and resonating bass arpeggios accented by ethereal synths. Throughout, listeners can hear the vulnerability that comes with change, but the confidence in the fact that the change is needed. Cal Maro is not a reinvention rooted in confusion, it is rooted in nothing more than progress…
