Clear The Heir [edit]
by Christon Gray | Genre: Rap/Urban | Release Date: October 19, 2018
 

Christon Grayís fourth full-length offering, Clear The Heir [RCA Inspiration], marks a moment of bold transformation for the Columbus, OH singer, songwriter, rapper, and producer. For as much as it showcases the progression of the artistís patented hip-hop-R-&-B hybrid, it also illustrates intense personal growth. Both of these journeys converge on the recordís eleven tracks as he opens up like never before within signature deft bars and soulful crooning.ďYouíre hearing me become a man,Ē he affirms. ďIím not just a 24-year-old making songs for the first time anymore. Iím being as honest as Iíve ever been. I felt the freedom to not sugarcoat who I am. Itís not all perfect. Itís raw. I caught up to myself and based my music on a new chapter. Youíre just witnessing a regular person be real.Ē

We're All Human | Posted October 12, 2018
What You Need To Know:
Christon Gray quietly flies under the radar of most people. A talented crooner and rapper, Gray show's all sides of his talents - singing, rapping, writing and producing on Clear The Heir. Christian Hip Hop, Gospel, or Soul, no genre clearly defines what Gray does, but this new genre is all amour.

What It Sounds Like:
Clear The Heir is reminiscent of Gray's first release, Even With Evil With Me. The piano-driven ballads with impeccable vocal range are the centrepiece, however, do not put Christon in a box. The man can spit bars for days, "Gray," "Grow Up," "Time Out" and "You and I (Sampson's Lament)" make this crystal clear.

Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights:
"Take Me To The Water" highlights a desire to be washed clean from sin. But more than just being washed, it is about the struggle we feel when we feel the tug of God's call on our hearts. "You and I" touches on a struggle with sin and spiritual warfare involved. The track cleverly lays out what could have been Sampson's lament over Delilah. 

Best Song On The Record:
"Gray" has so much depth lyrically, it touches on recent social issues and calls the church to more action. It is an Ohio all-star show featuring Gray's brother Taelor and Tragic Hero. It isn't a song that can be listened to once. It is a song to sit with. The chorus is an exhortation to the listener, "There's a Heaven and we all wanna go/Does anybody wanna fall on the sword/Take my hand, I just want you to know/Healing begins when you call on the Lord."
 
For Fans Of:
Stevie Wonder, Brian Reith, Trip Lee, KB 

Final Word:
Christon Gray is a rule breaker. He does not fit neatly within one genre. Rather, he blends them together, making something that can only be his own. His journey over the years has been the tale of the underdog. This is an artist that should not be counted out or brushed aside. Clear The Heir is an album that will be revisited years from and considered groundbreaking in its own right.
