Artist Profile: OnCue

OnCue is exactly the type of artist I love to write about and, even better still, listen to. Not only is it apparent that his lyrics come straight from his heart, and he bares his soul for all to see, but listen to five bars of his flow and it's blatantly obvious that he loves what he does.

OnCue, who hails originally from Hartford, Conn., and currently resides in Brooklyn, NY., is quite an enigma. After some skimming some interviews and articles about the rising star, the only glimpse of a name I've found was that some people call him Geoffrey. But, lucky for us, "Geoffrey" from Brooklyn know how to make some great music. Whether he's sampling Dave Matthew's "Crash Into Me," or producing his own beats, he's a raw talent.

Here are some of the best songs of his I've discovered thus far. (Also, you can download his mixtape, "Cuey Sings the Blues", here.) Listen away!

"Crashing Down" (Download included in the description)

"Your Own Supply"

I love the scene with the photographer.

"Friends" (Download included in the description)
