eRok – King

Singers are center stage these days with reality TV always donning a new show to showcase the talent across the nation. Many can sing which is what we now know but what separates anyone in any genre goes beyond just the skill itself. Doubtful anyone would say any region is blanketed by R&B talent but the Northwest is pretty slim pickens especially when it comes to full length releases. eRok is one of the few who can add his mark to those who have put together a full length album as “King” is his introduction into the music world. Portland based eRok has a easy versus hard dilemma as most singers do being that he has a nice voice that upholds the easiness of a listeners ear but does that translate into good songs? The album stays safe for the most part over twelve tracks eRok keeps things contemporary with a flair of pop and a pinch of the old school. Though every genre has its gimmicky artists in R&B it stays a bit more in the truth lane by being vividly personal. eRok himself crosses over for a song or two but in easy lament the album stays high on all facets of relationships via love, heartbreak, physical, or emotional. The best quality in listening to the majority of this album is the ability to relate or least understand a point of view that any given song is trying to express. Sometimes just saying something is good is enough and while we are all critics the overall sense is potential fans will find some gratification in some part of this debut album from eRok.
