Rome Clientel‘s set about building his empire as he drops Guts & Glory, the first in his The Conquest series. Not set about focusing on building it in a day – this is the first time we’ve seen him for a while – Rome’s intention is to drop a number of singles while working towards The Empire 3: The Coronation, the third instalment of his Empire collection of EPs.

Back to the matter at hand, Rome Clientel’s old school approach is evident on the Damien Cornwell-produced Guts & Glory. A swelling piano is accompanied by the live saxophone playing of Scott Mayo – who’s also worked with Earth, Wind & Fire – and overlayed with Rome’s thoughts on the struggles he has faced.

Rome Clientel – Guts & Glory feat. Scott Mayo

Elmira emcee and Golden Era recording artist Rome Clientel has taken a bit of a sabbatical following the release of The Empire 2: The Battlegrounds EP. As he continues to work on The Empire 3: The Coronation EP, the third one of the series, Rome is embarking on #TheConquest, a campaign of singles to demonstrate what he has in store moving forward. 

The first release from #TheConquest is “Guts And Glory,” a mellow offering produced by Damien Cornwell. Adding to the smooth beat is the live saxophone playing of Scott Mayo, known for being a member of the band for American Idol. Mayo has worked with other legendary artists including Sergio Mendes and Earth Wind and Fire.

Expect more music from Rome Clientel in the coming weeks. For now just press play and enjoy. #TheConquest has begun..

    Not the right picture to use for an album cover like this, otherwise, nice tune.

    It’s an artist view of the NAME of the track. Not the track itself. The guts it takes to threaten someone else’s life. And the glory you get from knowing you had their life in the palm of your hands. From a soldiers point of view!
