Preston Pablo channels a fresh perspective on R&B and pop through his eloquent songwriting. Preston signed to 31 East/Universal Music Canada in 2021 as he honed what he describes as a “modern vintage” style. “It’s a blend of pop and R&B with a different twist, but I’m keeping all of the doors open,” he states. “My favourite way to write songs is with piano or guitar. It starts from the classic side with instruments and evolves from there.” After racking up nearly 20 million streams independently, he draws a big sound out of small-town roots on singles such as “Don’t Break (My Soul)”, and his most recent hit, “Flowers Need Rain” with Banx & Ranx, and “Love You Bad”. Landing the #1 spot on the Shazam Chart in Canada, achieving platinum status, and reaching a Top 5 spot at Top 40 radio, “Flowers Need Rain” showcases Preston’s further emergence in popular music.
