The Grammy-Nominated Artist (aka Bobby Brackins) Welcomes Us to a Cleanly World of High Drama with A Collaborative New Single
Lata Harbor (the latest artistic persona of Grammy-nominated recording artist/songwriter and most recently, screenwriter/producer Bobby Brackins) excels at whichever medium he tries. Returning to music after a two-year hiatus, Lata Harbor shares “Wash My Hands,“ a new single. Painting a vivid romantic narrative in a manner of minutes, “Wash My Hands” recounts the messy end of a break-up. With guest vocals from Marc E. Bassy, Collett, and August 08, and a hush-toned verse from Lata Harbor himself. Nic-Nac produced “Wash My Hands,” and it offers an endless array of vocal and instrumental hooks. It tells the story of a couple that just can’t quite end their toxic relationship. “It also serves as a reminder to practice social distancing and to literally, wash your hands during this pandemic.”
“Lata Harbor is basically my Gnarls Barkley to Cee-Lo Green or Childish Gambino to Donald Glover or 2 Chainz to Tity Boi,” says Bobby Brackins. “Like any creative, I’ve grown artistically over the years and I keep evolving. I was ‘Young Bob’ during the GO DAV days of 2005-2009, I was Bobby Brackins who made the song “143” with Ray J and co-wrote radio anthems for Chris Brown, Tinashe, Bieber, Ty Dolla $ign, etc. from 2010-2019 and now with my newfound love of screenwriting, I decided to change my name to Lata Harbor. Creatively, I feel like everything I’m doing has been enhanced and I’m stepping out of the box and digging deeper with my writing. Lata Harbor houses my new collaborative efforts with my favorite people to work with.“
Awards and Previous Collaborations
A winner at the 2018 BMI Pop Awards for working on DJ Khaled’s #1 hit “I’m The One,”. Lata Harbor earned industrywide acclaim under the name of “Bobby Brackins” for co-writing radio anthems. BMI Award winners like Chris Brown‘s “Loyal,” and Tinashe’s “2 On,”. Now returning to creating his own music under a new alias, Lata Harbor plans to evolve his sound. He’s writing songs with more stripped-down guitar and piano as opposed to his more synth-based previous material. Using more live instrumentation, and collaborating with producers, songwriters, and artists he has developed relationships with throughout the years. In 2018, the artist shared To Kill For, a luxurious 10-track EP, which featured appearances from Jeremih, G-Eazy, Tinashe, and more. The Oakland native recently secured funding for My Nina, his feature screenplay, for which he will co-produce and write all original songs.
