Westin Wednesday – [Destin Laurel]

Destin Laurel returns to the Lyrical Lemonade pages to drop off his highly anticipated project ‘Westin Wednesday, Vol 1’. The 19-year-old East Atlanta artist is a rising star as he’s building a core audience with an original sound that combines hip-hop, R&B, neo-soul, and even gospel. Throughout this 10-track record, Destin takes his listeners on a journey of a range of emotions from aspirational flexing to somber introspection. Westin Wednesday started as weekly DIY releases broadcasted from his bedroom. A common theme about this project is that you’ll recognize a sample that is sure to trigger instant nostalgia for us listeners. Still, it also shows off Destin’s deep appreciation for music he’s been inspired by over the years. I can’t really pick a favorite song because I’m enjoying all of them on this project. However, I will say Destin’s versatility is very refreshing to hear from an artist his age and has me looking forward to his forthcoming releases in the future.

Listen to Destin Laurel’s new project Westin Wednesday, Vol 1’ after the break for yourself.
