Zak Waters is the current incarnation of the Blue Eyed Soul Movement that I experienced when growing up. Blue Eyed Soul refers to white kids doing soul music. Jon B was at the forefront of this movement when I was younger. Now, I have no idea what color this kids eyes are but he is for sure soulful. It is very reminiscent of Plan B or Jamiroquai in the sense that it is incredibly dancey/funky while maintaining the integrity of soul music. I am surprised to see that this guy doesn’t have a deal right now and it won’t be long.
