Blackcrowns is the professional name of emerging independent Canadian Hip-hop artist Raeshon Woodhouse. Growing up in Toronto, he began writing at a young age. Before making a move to the music industry, Raeshon performed his original poetry at local spoken words in downtown Toronto. Soon he was writing for & with other local artists around Canada.
In 2020 Blackcrowns made his professional solo recording debut with the single “Options.” That track introduced a lyrical rapper with a laid-back flow and a taste for downtempo beats. Since then the prolific producer has released two EPs and a half dozen singles.
“L.A. Keeps Calling” is the brand new single from Blackcrowns, released worldwide to all major streaming services on February 26, 2022. A sample of ethereal choral vocal harmonies opens the tune to introduce a dreamy, psychedelic vibe. Soon the beat drops on a downtempo Hip-hop groove and the singer steps to the mic with a tale of a troubled love affair told in a smooth R&B tenor. A Jazz guitar and some ambient synths paint the edges of the mix as he raps and sings of the struggle between his career and his relationship.
