His album “Focus” is like a well-thought-out composition; it’s an art and a journey that weaves through Alternative Pop and Dance that is as intense as Michael Jackson’s signature tunes. There’s a particular track on the album that illustrates exquisite musicianship. Lington once shared this regarding the track, “It’s not just music, it’s a narrative. It’s talking, it’s telling a story. Music is communication.”
Lington displays an innate sense for blending Irish-based culture and West African-based culture, ushering in a new yet familiar sound that fans of Contemporary Soul and R&B will surely appreciate. And like a drop of ink in water, it gently sways, spreads, and combines until the result is something wholly different and unique. Something Lington would say is “an amalgamation of my influences and experiences.”
