Bay area singer & songwriter, BEREL, seamlessly weaving nostalgic tones with his own brand of electronica, neo-soul, and hip-hop on the cover of Xavier Omar’s powerful track,“Blind Man.” The original tune stands as a song for any person who’s ever experienced the essence of love and gracefully anti-objectifies women and beauty standards, to relay that beauty doesn’t have to be seen with the eyes. The cover was created with the help of LA/SF producer, Aabo, where he uses a few live instruments, to give the original trap-soul electronic track a live band feel.
