Nicadrio Lee – Palette

Aloha Got Soul is a record label out of Hawaii documenting the lost soul that was coming out of the state during the 1970s and 1980s, but this release is actually the work of a local prodigy called Nicadrio Lee who put this album together last year if I understand correctly.  It’s been hyped for quite a few months, but to be honest, I figured that it was merely some kid noodling with his guitar.  I am happy to say that I was terribly wrong.  It’s a rather sophisticated City Pop, all instrumental and very mellow.  Nicadrio is very good at what he does.  As he’s 19 at the moment, I wonder what he’ll be doing in the next decade or two.
