Two years ago, Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Joshua Karpeh, also known as Cautious Clay, walked away from his white-collar job and charmed fans with his debut single, “Cold War.” 

This choice produced singles in Booksmart and 13 Reasons Why, as well as a show on NPR Tiny Desk. However, fame never intrigued Karpeh.  He craved authenticity and genuine conversations with people—like he does in “Cold War” when he challenges his significant other to speak the truth like they mean it:  “But if we just spoke, like we meant it / Would you reference this open part of me?” 

His album, Blood Type, bundles synths, guitars, harmonious backup vocals, and immersive bass. His new EP, Table of Context, infuses the same ingredients, but with increased intensity of bass and vocals. From a relaxed croon to a thick layer of instruments and passion, he relentlessly reshapes his EP, never letting it lull. 

Enter the giveaway below by Sunday, December 8th at 11PM for a chance to win a pair of tickets to his show at Paradise Rock Club:
