R&B Brooklyn artist Joshua Karpeh aka Cautious Clay has been creating a buzz on Soundcloud, NPR, and even grabbing interest from other peers in the industry ranging from his work with John Mayer and Hudson Mohawke to his collaboration with AlunaGeorge on her song “Superior Emotion”, along with Billie Eilish for remixing her song “Ocean Eyes”. Garnering attention in 2017 for the song, “Cold War”, Cautious Clay released his highly anticipated debut EP Blood Type in 2018 that was followed up by the single, “Reasons”. Karpeh’s journey into music wasn’t a predictable one even though he started playing music in his early schooling as a youngster in Cleveland, OH, that began with the flute until he transitioned to the saxophone in high school. Now based in Brooklyn, NY, Cautious Clay is readying his release of a new EP, Table of Context, that features the recently released, “Honest Enough”.
Cautious Clay took a moment to speak with B-Sides host, Pete Mar, about Table of Context, his chance collaborations and more. Check out the interview:
