This week, Leslie Odom Jr.—the actor and singer best known for originating the role of Aaron Burr in the Hamilton original Broadway cast—visited the Paste Studio in New York City to sing us a few songs with his five-piece band. The Grammy and Tony award-winning vocalist recently released his first full album of original solo material, Mr. He treated us to three songs from the album: “Go Crazy,” “Under Pressure” and “Cold.”
