Emerging singer, songwriter and producer Q has released his debut album, Soul,PRESENT, via Boy Meets Euphoria/Columbia Records. The Florida native wrote and produced every track on the album.
In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Q revealed that the album began while he was in London with COVID. “I was going through a lot of personal things… [and] I was left in bed with my bare self, thinking about everything that I was going through, that I was doing,” he said. “I was presented with the raw me, the rawest me. It was a very rough time. But then I was on the plane back from London to Florida, and I was dreaming and I heard a melody.”
He continued, “While I was on the plane, ‘Soul, Present’ came to me. And it really means my soul is enough for God, and God’s presence was enough for me, because that’s all I had in that moment. I had nothing else.”
Soul,PRESENT is the follow-up to Q’s 2021 project, The Shave Experiment (Director’s Cut), an extended version of his 2020 EP, The Shave Experiment.
On May 28, Q will launch his co-headlining Through the Soul Tour with Baby Rose in Toronto, Canada. The two will play shows in major North American cities such as Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and Philadelphia. The tour concludes June 25 in at the historic Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.
