SONG FOR SUNDAY #48: Shad – At The Same Time

shad-tsol-cover

Shad’s At The Same Time is our Song For Sunday.

Shad is an intelligent rapper, both in wordplay and outside the music game. He’s bilingual (English and French) and holds two degrees: one in business and a master’s degree in liberal studies. This all culminates in his music and his last offering TSOL was arguably his best. One of the stand out tracks was the calm and composed “At The Same Time” where Shad lays his thoughts on the world and himself, expressing his emotions with laughter and tears. The instrumentation is exquisite, with an airy guitar-led melody, sparse interjections of the distant trumpet and soft organ. Be prepared for mixed feelings of a different kind.
