Welcome to Spanish Steps, a collection of songs navigating dreams, marriage and parenthood in New York City. 
I’ve been writing and home-recording over the past few years with an evolving setup that I've dubbed my "mad scientist looping rig." You could call this music my version of electro-soul.
The process is similar to what people today call "bedroom pop." That moniker is really a 21st-century description of a songwriting and recording method that I’ve been using since I got my first four-track tape machine. Part of me has long aspired to be a soul auteur à la Shuggie Otis. This release satisfies that desire.
My wife is a traveler. I joined in not long after we met. Rome was our last trip together before our first child was born; the Spanish Steps were a place where we celebrated our engagement. Two kids later, we’re still on a journey together – even when we’re sheltering in place.
"All of Humphreys’ musical projects have shared some common elements: His distinctive soulful rasp, channeling Sam Cooke; his tight, imaginative guitar work; and his gift for writing melodic, catchy, deceptively simple tunes." — Eddie Huffman, Winston-Salem Journal
"…The material comes across with an easy sway, effortless and alluring… One gets the sense that Humphreys is building his reputation cautiously but deliberately… his good fortune is all but inevitable."— Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
