This was a very special day! I premiered by Skyler's Vocal Healing Tea at Run Dat Back on September 3rd. The event was curated by So Soul Productions, and it took place at Apache Cafe. Prior to the event, I spent my day recording a demo of my original song, and teaching private music lessons.
I didn't grow up listening to her music super heavy, but I've always appreciated her classics, like "Video" and "Brown Skin." As I delve deeper into my own music, I'm listening more closely to different things, and she's one of the artists I selected to study. I learned a lot from watching documentaries, interviews, and this concert video from a jazz festival in 2014. I really appreciate her positive and empowering lyrical content. Her voice is so rich, and it's super dope she can play the flute!
My life is a song still being written...watch my lyrics evolve.
