First Look: Ty Causey delivers the funk on "Contagious"

(October 11, 2021) SoulTrackers have been following smooth R&B and jazzman Ty Causey since we started, and the prolific singer and songwriter has rewarded them with a series of projects that have bridged the two genres and virtually defined adult soul in the 21st century.

But for his newest single, the Indiana-based singer has taken a step across the line to Ohio in the 1980s, delivering a funky jam reminiscent of the string Dayton bands that dominated the R&B charts. “Contagious” contains a deep funk beat and pulsating keyboard behind Ty’s on point vocals – even showing off his falsetto. And he has UK producer extraordinaire Nigel Lowis on guitar.

Ty tells us about the song, I just wanted to show a more funkier side of me. I've done a lot mid-tempo/ballad songs in the past and wanted to add some funk from the old school to this upcoming album. I think the guitar parts really brought out that vibe I was looking for. Lyrically, I just wanted to have some fun being a hot shot but humble at the same time.

We consider it "Mission Accomplished." Check out the cool video for “Contagious,” and welcome Ty Causey back to SoulTracks.
