Today, Maryland-raised, NYC-based saxophonist/vocalist Braxton Cook announces a November 2nd release date for his full-length No Doubt. Heavily influenced by John Coltrane, Frank Ocean, and D'Angelo, Braxton mixes the improvisatory elements of jazz and the soulful melodies of R&B into a fresh sound that's all his own. Listen to the first single "When You Hold Me
"'When You Hold Me' is about missing your significant other and wanting those last few minutes together before you rush into your busy day," Braxton says of the lead single. "This song chronicles a normal morning where I wake up late and just barely catch my lady as she's leaving the house for work."
Braxton first broke out with the 2017 release of his debut solo full-length Somewhere in Between. The album landed Braxton on the cover of Spotify's The Butter playlist, and four tracks from the album were featured on Spotify's Top 50 Viral in the U.S. chart. In Spring
of 2018, Braxton released Somewhere in Between: Remixes & Outtakes featuring West Coast producers Swarvy, Kiefer, and Allmos. The two releases earned praise from The FADER, Pigeons and Planes, Okayplayer, and NPR Music's Heavy
