Introducing: Felix

Attention R&B lovers! This week we introduce you to Felix Shepherd, aka Felix, a British singer-songwriter from Birmingham who’s caught our attention with his elegant groove.

Felix was put in the spotlight last year on the TV talent show The X Factor during the second week of auditions – watch his deeply personal performance here. You can instantly tell he is passionate about what he does.

Making music for quite some time now, posting covers on his Instagram and Soundcloud pages, Felix had yet to release his own music until this summer. But it’s now done!

Felix released his debut single with us in June and it’s a stunner. The track – titled Gold – was inspired about a lover and even though the relationship ended before the track was live, Felix continued with the release, and we’re so glad he did. It’s a perfect mix of retro groove with a modern melody and emotional lyrics that add depth to the track.

The music video for Gold flawlessly conveys the mood of the track.

Felix’s style is half pop half R&B with a touch of indie vibes. He’s been compared to Frank Ocean, who is one of his biggest inspirations alongside other artists like Billie Eilish and Nao.

In between official music releases, you can also check out Felix’s very entertaining Youtube channel, where he uploads covers regularly.

Make sure to follow Felix on Instagram, Facebook and Soundcloud for updates, more covers, and tour dates! Be on the lookout as Felix often does shows around the UK.
