‘No La Veo’ leads the way on new EP from East Coast artist Kelvin Rey
SEAFORD, DE – The perfect blend of Pop and Island vibes come together with Kelvin Rey’s latest single “No La Veo.” With a distinct International flare, this upbeat and bouncy song shows off Rey’s Dominican heritage while tapping into his natural talent as a vocalist. His unique voice offers a gritty edge to the R&B scene to create a signature sound that is sure to make waves around the world for years to come.
“No La Veo” is the first release off a seven-song EP called “Just Wanna Be Free,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. Rey said the project was inspired from a recent vacation in California. After releasing his first EP “Suzanne” in 2018, he decided to make a trip to Los Angeles with a close friend. The experience was both therapeutic and inspirational, and he literally wrote the first song on his new EP while flying back home from that vacation.
“It’s a completely different sound than the first project,” he said. “I was super inspired by that trip and this project really captures those feelings of being with my best friend in California and having a good time and feeling free and falling in love with a stranger that you just met. It’s much more Pop than anything else, which is the direction I’m trying to go, but it’s still rooted in R&B and Soul.”
Known in the Northeast for his modeling, this budding young musician first started in the world of music while singing in the church choir as a young boy. Songwriting wasn’t too far behind because it became an avenue of expression for him. By 2018, that journey led to a full-fledged career in music, and with the successful release of “Suzanne,” everything seemed to be falling into place. Since that time, he’s been pushing his limits and further developing a sound that he calls Soulful R&B with edgy Pop hits.
“I have this R&B twist of Pop going on,” he said. “I feel like everyone is on this Hip Hop and Trap vibe, but I’m trying to be on a mission to bring Pop back, even though I know it never really goes away. What I mean is that I’m bringing that fresh sound in my own way. I don’t sound like anyone else. I’m in my own lane and I have my own thing going on. At the end of the day, I want to be inspirational. I want my music to do more for people than just give them good-sounding music. I put so much into my music and I work so hard for it, and I’d like to be known for that hard work and perfection as a serious artist.”
