What becomes of a striking vocal talent that was born and bred for entertainment in South Florida, polished and primed in Atlanta and is currently being presented in the Los Angeles performance sect? Undoubtedly, the debut of a conceptual new genre, “Funk Trap” and a comprehensive new talent, Antonio Ramsey, who’s destined to dominate the charts and update what we now know to be the soulful sound of today’s man.
The raspy baritone and soon to be vocal paramount has opened shows and shared stages with fellow celebrated performers including Fantasia, Lyfe Jennings, Anthony Hamilton, Bobby Brown, Vivian Green, Bobby V, Chubb Rock and more. Currently, Ramsey is promoting his newest single All Night Long, a mannish, bass-ladened promise to unabashedly “give it all he’s got” all night long. The accompanying video, shot between a desolate California desert and a sex-charged hotel room is steadily tearing through the social-sphere drawing fans into the look, feel, sound and overall experience that is the 20-something year old crooner with boy-next-door charm.
Ramsey, who is heavily inspired by James Brown and Jodeci, has made cameo appearances on television in projects on MTV, BRAVO and NBC. 2017 will continue to usher in performance and portrayal opportunities for everything from new music to forthcoming movie roles. Walls, boundaries and boxes don’t stand a chance if attempting to stop this show. It’s already in process and he’s got the feeling baby.
“As soon as I heard the guitar riff that plays the record in, it just felt sexy with that classic throwback-feel to it,” mentions Antonio. “Then of course the Hennessy and cranberry kicked in, giving us the melody “Imma give that girl this d***” and from there the song just fell into place,” he chuckles. “The song is on the premise of how us as men should be upfront with a woman without sugar-coating what we want and how women should do the same.”
“Coming up in south Florida, I had no choice but to grow up a very straight forward type of person. I grew up listening to icons like James brown, Stevie Wonder & Jodeci! So me being able to put pieces of my life together to create #FunkTrap music is a journey that I look forward to,” says Antonio.
Antonio is preparing to hit the road on a promotional tour in support of the single and stops will include; New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Chicago, just to name a few. Antonio’s forthcoming debut EP will be released later this Fall.
