First Listen: Kyle Maack reintroduces himself with "Here I Am."

(May 29, 2018 After introducing himself to music fans through fresh remakes of Temptations classics on his 2017 debut EP, Shakey Ground, soul man Kyle Maack - the first artist signed to the 10/30 International record label, run by Dr. Otis Williams of The Temptations - assured fans that they could expect new, original content from him, starting with the music video for "Here I Am," the original track that he and Dr. Williams penned together for Maack's EP.

(May 29, 2018 After introducing himself to music fans through fresh remakes of Temptations classics on his 2017 debut EP, Shakey Ground, soul man Kyle Maack - the first artist signed to the 10/30 International record label, run by Dr. Otis Williams of The Temptations - assured fans that they could expect new, original content from him, starting with the music video for "Here I Am," the original track that he and Dr. Williams penned together for Maack's EP.

Following much anticipation, the "Here I Am" video premiered just days after Kyle Maack performed the smooth slow jam in his live set for The Temptations at their album release party, celebrating the legends' latest album, "All The Time."  Speaking of that, Dr. Williams gives Kyle Maack a shout out in the album's 'Thank You' notes "for bringing The Temptations magic to a new audience."  And in a previous radio interview, Dr. Williams spoke of Kyle Maack as a "wonderful spirit" and "very talented young man."  What compliments!

With that said, in my best Jay-Z voice: 'Allow him to reintroduce himself; his name is Kyle Maack!'  And here he is with his "Here I Am" video.  It's giving me all kinds of Jon B vibes, by the way.  Check it out below!
