Ones to Watch is happy to premiere the new visual to Caye's song "Easy," an acoustic version of his recent Wiz Khalifa-assisted hit. Caye retains the song's tropical, lush essence while stripping away the booming 's, allowing his vocals to anchor the song instead. Based in Los Angeles but born in Boston, Caye taps into the feeling of swaying palm trees and crystal clear water with ease. He first got his start with music by studying classical piano for seven years, eventually moving on to the drums while also learning how to play guitar as well as bass. A trip to Trinidad and Tobago in the eighth grade did much to influence his sound, however, living with a "family steel drum band" that built him the drum he still uses on stage today. We caught up with Caye to discuss the new video as well as how he originally linked with Wiz Khalifa, and hear a little bit about his state of mind leading up to the debut album. Read on to see what he had to say! Caye: I made an acoustic version of "Easy" to showcase the song in a more intimate way. I think the acoustic version better highlights my vocals and the meaning behind the lyrics.

Each song compliments the others, contrasting hype songs with chill beats to find the mellow in-between that allows for a pleasant listening experience throughout the album. The album itself experiments with the fusion of multiple music genres, primarily hip-hop, reggae and jazz. Yet, it becomes clear that the latter album strives to master a developing musical maturity and in doing so creates a sound experience that comes full circle with the feeling of a complete and contained whole. Given his passion for his profession, this is still only just the beginning for Caye, as this album allows his career to take off. Alongside his growing popularity among listeners, Caye has also gained recognition among fellow music artists.
When it comes to making music, the rising artist Caye is no rookie. Music has always played a major role in the life of the Boston-bred MC. At three years old, Caye picked up the piano, and at age 10, he moved on to the drums.
