Three years after his previous release The Beauty Created, singer Jesse Boykins III has shown up all over the radar with small tracks and visuals here and there. After my introduction to his work in mid 2009, the idea that Boykins would sit back and work on his craft never phased me. He was an inarguable talent, someone who wanted to push boundaries and make himself know far beyond just being a wanderer who happened to have the hair of an individual that commanded you to pay attention to him.

Only six songs in length, Way of a Wayfarer offers the unique possibility that something small can pave the way for something far bigger as Boykins and his soulful vocals engorge listeners from the opening “I Can’t Stay” to “Zoner”. Presented bySoulCultureStreet Etiquette, Passport Life & GFCnewyork, Boykins project is sure to line up with some of the other soul releases this year that emphasis talent over glossy packaging.
