ABOUT PRESTON PABLO:
Preston Pablo channels a fresh perspective on R&B and pop through his eloquent songwriting. Preston signed to 31 East/Universal Music Canada in 2021 as he honed what he describes as a “modern vintage” style. “It’s a blend of pop and R&B with a different twist, but I’m keeping all of the doors open,” he states. “My favourite way to write songs is with piano or guitar. It starts from the classic side with instruments and evolves from there.” After racking up nearly 20 million streams independently, he draws a big sound out of small-town roots on singles such as “Don’t Break (My Soul)”, and “Flowers Need Rain” with Banx & Ranx. Landing the #1 spot on the Shazam Chart in Canada, achieving platinum status, and reaching a Top 5 spot at Top 40 radio, “Flowers Need Rain” showcases Preston’s further emergence in popular music. With his honest lyrics and an R&B melody, the emerging artist released, “Love You Bad”, showcasing his ability to cross genres. With much more to come in 2023, Preston is ready to launch new music kicking off with the release of “AY AY AY”.
