Cautious Clay to perform at Smiling Moose 9/26

Cautious Clay has become the talk of the town. With the highly successful release of both his RESONANCE EP and Blood Type EP, a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom, a feature of “Cold War” in INSECURE’s season premiere and collaborations with numerous notable artists, Cautious Clay continues to fuel the fire with new material.
Cautious is set to join both Gallant and Alina Baraz on their upcoming fall tours, so stay tuned for show dates.
Cautious’ musical journey has drastically evolved, a reflection of the whirlwind of change the buzzing artist has experienced in the past year. Where his Blood Type EP focused on themes of relationships and identity, RESONANCE hones in on the challenges and excitement that surrounds the life of an independent musician.
KCRW gave us the exclusive look at the EP and says, “Each track tells its own story, including one of my favorites, the very bright ‘Call Me.'”
Hillydilly says of RESONANCE, “With the project, Clay continues to make it obvious he’s one of music’s best talents.”
Cautious released a live video for “Call Me.” NPR’s Bob Boilen says, “He made me a fan with his soulful voice and intense charisma, but when he picked up the sax and the flute – that was the winning moment. I left the club assuming that Cautious Clay, aka Josh Karpeh, was headed for stardom.”
CC recently released his Blood Type Remix EP, a bundle of remixes from artists including HXNS, Nick AM, Mozado, & Wacomo. “These are all producers who I respect and who have added some incredible musical perspective to these songs through their remixes,” Cautious adds.
Pitchfork featured his “Cold War” video, calling it “a meditation on human interaction in the age of dating apps and social media.”
Cautious Clay‘s highly rated Blood Type EP was re-released on April 13th with a surprise addition, “Stolen Moments.”
The NY Times says, “A self-indictment delivered like an R&B love song, “Stolen Moments” itemizes a lot of good reasons to back out of a romance with the singer…Josh Karpeh, who records as Cautious Clay, croons those and more over cozy acoustic guitar chords and a creeping bass line, with wisps of falsetto vocals and saxophone in the background.”
NPR says, “‘Stolen Moments,’…is a stunning, hushed lament that plays out like a lovers’ quarrel about commitment (or lack thereof) that’s still reeling long after the last words have been thrown… By the last guitar strums, it’s clear: ‘Stolen Moments’ is a luxurious kiss-off told a day too late.”
