    The cream "rises" to the top, and the cream of this crop is Cris Cab!

    Cab moves into the next phase of his career with the October 9 release of his five-track label debut for Mercury Records. He will release an EP titled Rise.

    In support of Rise, Cris has scheduled a month-long, 22-city North American tour, presented by Steve Madden Music, opening October 6 at Jack Rabbits in Jacksonville, FL, running through November 2 at The Social in Orlando, FL.

    About C. Cab: He is the son of first generation Cuban immigrants, Cris Cab is a natural-born singer who picked up the guitar at age 11, and began writing and recording his own songs on a four-track machine he acquired at age 14. Influenced by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Buju Banton, Sting, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder (to name a few), Cris was "discovered" four years ago by Pharrell Williams, now one of his biggest boosters.

    "I knew from the moment he grabbed his guitar and sang that first note," Pharrell recalls. "With the proper nurturing, that kid had it. He is merely warming up. This kid is just getting started."

    Hell to the yes!
