    Miami native Cris Cab is quickly making a name for himself in the music world, and he is set to prove himself again with the release of his Echo Boom mixtape, presented by iconic street wear brand, Billionaire Boys Club. Nab it for free by going to www.criscab.com.

    With Echo Boom, Cris gives fans new tracks that showcase his unique and captivating sound. The first track released from the mixtape, "One Thing", was produced by Pharrell Williams and recorded in Miami. In addition to Pharrell, Cris worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Wyclef Jean, 88-Keys, Malay and more on the mixtape which features Melanie Fiona, Movado, Marc Roberge of OAR and others.

    "Creating this mixtape has been an amazing experience, getting back in the studio with Pharrell and working with Wyclef has taught me so much," said Cab. "I can't wait to share these tracks with my fans and play them live," he added. The term Echo Boom refers to the Echo Boomer generation, the largest generation of young people (ages 15-25) in US history, the children of the baby boomers.

    After a pair of headline shows in New York and Miami, Cab will hit the road with T-Pain and Gym Class Heroes next month on the Snowstorm Music Tour.

    A recent high school graduate, Cris released his debut EP Foreword in June of 2011 to much fanfare. It featured seven standout tracks, including "Good Girls" and "Take You Away." Cris is currently in the studio working on his debut album.
