Caye debuts Top Shelf


“We’re happy to be introducing a newer artist Caye with the premiere of his infectious new single. There’s something about the vibrant vibe of “Top Shelf” that just makes you want to go on a summer drive. Definitely keep an eye out for Caye
and stay tuned for his debut album.” – ThisSongIsSick
Multi-talented rapper and singer Caye partners with ThisSongIsSick to debut his chill new single “Top Shelf.” The Dawgus jazz infused track is effortlessly ethereal as Caye reminisces of carefree summer days drifting from the Hollywood Hills to Downtown LA. Before the sun goes down, he slyly caps it off with a smooth soulful turn while remaining nostalgic of the summer high.
Caye explains, “Top Shelf came together during our most stressful week of school, finals week. I was in my dorm room, unable to focus and procrastinating with my school work. I kept daydreaming about those sunny summer days where you just chill and enjoy life. So when you bump this track, grab a drink from the Top Shelf and savor the carefree times.”
Billboard Magazine championed the budding artist with an exclusive premiere of his jazzy record “With U” praising how the MC “skates through the aqueous track with ease” and “showcases his duality as an artist by stapling together a soulful hook.” Both singles “With U” and “Top Shelf” will be featured on his upcoming debut album Pink Tree Paradise releasing next year.
Next up, Caye will hit the road for an 11-city tour with electro-soul group Busty and The Bass. The tour will kick off in Ottawa, ON at Babylon on November 15th and wrap up with a special hometown show in Boston at The Paradise Rock Club on December 8th. Tour dates listed below.

Born and raised in Boston, Caye became a talented multi-instrumentalist at an early age. His fondness for a variety of genres (from Jazz to Hip-Hop and everything in between) melted with his skills on the piano (age 2), drums (age 10), guitar (age 12) and favorite instrument the steel pan. This set the stage for the essence of his music: smooth verses and seductive production.
The 20-year-old entered USC Thornton School of Music’s Pop Music Program during the Fall of 2016 and has already created a buzz for himself on the college circuit with over 10 Million streams combined on Spotify and SoundCloud. Over summer Vevo selected Caye to perform for their 2017 dscvr series. Caye also premiered his debut music video “LA Life” that was inspired by his big move from Boston to Hollywood. The feel-good summer jam was praised by HipHopDX for “its smooth and rich acoustics…refreshingly energetic verses…and bursting melodies.”
Caye released seven tracks on his mixtape Shades Pt. 1 in October 2016. It included his hit “Coma,” that has over 5 million plays. Caye has sold out 500 capacity venues in Boston like Brighton Music Hall. His debut album Pink Tree Paradise will release in Spring 2018.
