Originally from Cleveland Ohio, Josh Karpeh; or Cautious Clay as you may know him, discovered his musical talent when he picked up the flute at age 7. Over the years he discovered the world of blues and jazz music and by college was songwriting and producing and had added a number of additional instruments to his repertoire. Now Based in Brooklyn, Cautious is working on a number of his own projects that we are excited about. 

You may recognize his new emotional track ‘Swim Home’ from the soundtrack for the latest season of 13 Reasons Why. This track was written and produced by Cautious Clay, alongside John Mayer after meeting him for the first time several months ago.
“I had just started getting into collaborating with other people and truly had never experienced a more natural creative flow while making this song.” Cautious explains. 

“Ever since I started playing music, it was always about the feel, There are a lot of things in art that you can learn by practicing or studying, but feel’s not one of them. It’s something you’ve just got to have. I used to think about songwriting and production as completely separate, but when I learned how to merge those two things, that’s when I was able to start creating music that really connected with people.”

This feel shines through Cautious Clay’s latest track ‘Swim Home.’ This Indie R&B track is emotive and connects with you as you listen. Acoustic flowing melodies and smooth soft vocals are paired with lyrics full of honesty creating a very moving track. This song is full of self-reflection that shows vulnerability and the lyrics are vividly poetic. Cautious uses a unique combination of organic instruments, digital programming and soulful vocals to create his track ‘Swim Home.’ Cautious is a forward thinking modern songwriter and producer, whose sound is steeped in the past. With influences such as James Blake, Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones, we can expect more emotion filled music from this artist. 

Check him out on his upcoming worldwide ‘Context Tour’ beginning later this month!
