The New Yorker says, ''Cautious Clay has the kind of voice that seems to emote and connect without effort; it burrows warmly into acoustic guitar melodies and floats atop more maximalist backdrops.'' Revolt TV says ''Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, Cautious Clay, consistently delivers phenomenal songs including his latest Medasin-produced track titled 'Honest Enough.''' In 2018 Cautious Clay rose to new heights with a feature on HBO's Insecure Season 3 Soundtrack, a Tiny Desk on NPR, performances at TIDAL X BROOKLYN and The Soul Train Awards on BET, sold-out headline shows, collaborations with notable artists such as John Mayer, as well as attention from VIBE, The New York Times, Pitchfork and more. NPR called Cautious Clay's Blood Type EP one of ''2018's best'' and DJ Booth featured Blood Type as one of their 10 Best Non-Rap Albums of the Year. Cautious' title track ''Cold War'' was number 29 on Sirius XMU's top 40 tracks of 2018. Cautious Clay performed a Tiny Desk on NPR. See the incredible artist shine as he performs three original tracks on the iconic Tiny Desk set. Cautious also performed ''Cold War'' with John Mayer on his Instagram Talk Show, Current Mood. ''There's something special about him, and he keeps revealing new layers to his creativity that continue to pull us in.'' - Complex ''Cautious Clay continues to shine with new single 'Crowned.''' - Hypebeast '''Crowned' is ear candy for any listener but also serves as vitamins to the consciousness.'' - VIBE Pitchfork featured the ''Cold War'' video, calling it ''a meditation on human interaction in the age of dating apps and social media.'' The New York Times says, ''A self-indictment delivered like an R&B love song, 'Stolen Moments' itemizes a lot of good reasons to back out of a romance with the singer...Josh Karpeh, who records as Cautious Clay, croons those and more over cozy acoustic guitar chords and a creeping bass line, with wisps of falsetto vocals and saxophone in the background.'' NPR says, '''Stolen Moments,'...is a stunning, hushed lament that plays out like a lovers' quarrel about commitment (or lack thereof) that's still reeling long after the last words have been thrown... By the last guitar strums, it's clear: 'Stolen Moments' is a luxurious kiss-off told a day too late.''
