Rising Dallas songwriter Coach Tev is notorious for building anticipation. In the last year he’s only dropped a half dozen tracks, but his strategy has proven to be successful. His stream count on SoundCloud has reached over 150K, with help from his friendly manager and social media push. He takes his time to perfect his output, from his unique artwork, down to his picturesque lyrics.
It’s taken some time, but Tev has finally released his first single of the year. Flight Change introduces producer Cambino who fits Tev like a glove. The smooth neo-soul record is a taken out of a scene from the classic black romance film Love Jones, starring the beautiful Nia Long. Tev steps in for the role of co-star Larenz Tate, as he attempts to smooth talk his way around the roadblock his beloved has placed before him. The theme is complex, and shows his ability to create quality concept tracks. Jay Luse is also featured, driving home the song with his dense rhymes.
Cambino and Tev are releasing an upcoming collaborative EP titled I Fell In Love With My Mistress slated to be out in fall of 2017. Keep watch by following Tev on SoundCloud.
