Interview: Wash Discuss “5 Miles To Port Arthur” Mixtape | Collaboration w/ Kevin Gates | & More on @MFWERadio

Speak to this dynamic artist about his sound and he’ll label it contemporary soul. Challenge him to rattle off his list of influences and he’ll give you a spectrum ranging from Nat King Cole to Anita Baker to R. Kelly. He’ll speak of his gospel upbringing—his parents were both pastors and singers; his sister, a musician. And his instrumental prowess will show him to be fluent on the piano, saxophone and drums. Wash is truly rich in depth; both the artist and the man. While his musical expertise is astonishingly mature, the 24 year old still finds a way to hold his own among his fellow R&B crooners. Signed to AyeGirl Music/Interscope Records, his debut single, “Can’t Trust Thots” features label mate and wildly successful rapper, French Montana, while cleverly paying musical homage to artists such as TLC and BBD. His smooth vocals are gripping and the upbeat record fits seamlessly into any of today’s contemporary playlists. Checkout our latest interview with Wash.

R&B singer, Wash—born, Ronald Washington Jr.—is set to make his Aye Girl/Interscope Records debut with the release of his single, “Can’t Trust Thots” featuring French Montana. Influenced by the gritty reality of his Port Arthur, TX upbringing as well as his gospel roots, Wash’s sound is contemporary, yet soulful; a mixture which caught the attention of songwriter/producer Chef Tone (Justin Bieber/Trey Songz/Drake). Armed with both personality and musicality—vocals, piano, drums and saxophone— Wash’s journey will be nothing short of dynamic.
