You've Been Cheatin'
By: Omar Coleman , Eddie Roberts
Produced By: Sounds of Eddie Roberts
Omar Coleman may come from Chicago, touted as ‘Home of the Blues’ but when you put his third Color Red single “You’ve Been Cheatin’” in a musical centrifuge, you extract a multitude of depth within classic blues themes. With Eddie Roberts producing the track, there are extracted elements of Daptone-esque horn lines, guitar riffs and organ stabs tastefully placed throughout, and a viscous layer of strings pads to contrast the rhythmic particles present throughout the composition. Coleman’s harmonica wails and tell-it-like-it-is vocals call out a lover’s infidelity and demand the truth be told in a precursor to his full-length album ’Strange Times,’ coming out via Color Red in early 2022.
