NOT SO ‘SECRET’ ANISHA LABELLE RELEASES LATEST SINGLE

Anisha LaBelle Website: https://linktr.ee/anishalabelle

“Anisha LaBelle is a 20 year old up-and-comer with a desire to share her ability to smile during dark times. Her lyricism contains the vulnerability many listeners have come to enjoy in recent memory, as she finds a way to capture the light, airy nature of older generations of pop music with the R&B and rap influences of today’s music. Surrounded by sunny synths and rhythm-heavy melodies, her vocals act as a paintbrush dancing across a blank canvas with vividly bright colors; instilling the same sense of hope within a listener that the writer herself has.” – @devonculbert

 Latest Project: Secret (Single) 

 Fun Fact fans don’t know: I am mostly self-taught and have been creating music since I was young. I recently studied and acquired a certificate in Audio Engineering, and have produced many of my own songs.

Hi Anisha! We are so excited to get to speak with you! Please let our audience know where you are doing this interview from now? 

I am from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

What kind of inspiration does the place you live give to your art? 

Growing up in this area, especially in the city, there was a huge hip-hop/rap influence. It was incredible for me to experience connecting with local artists, as there are so many talented musicians and rappers with their roots located in these areas. I was always inspired when recording in the city because I was able to catch a glimpse of the different styles of music people have there.

How did you end up there and is there a next stop destination for you? 

I grew up in the area and have bounced around towns a bit. I’m not sure where I’m headed, but I’m excited to see where life takes me next!

What makes you feel the most secure when you’re creating? 

I feel most secure when I know I’ve put my hardest work and effort into whatever I have created. For me less is more, and I would rather pour my heart into meaningful creations than settle for less to meet a deadline. I believe emotion and intention is carried through music, and it’s best to create in a positive mindset, even if that means taking a bit longer.

Your career has gone a wild ride, what was a high and what was a low that you feel comfortable sharing with us? 

A high would definitely be working on the music video for my song Trip (Remix) [ft. Unw1ted]! I had so much fun connecting with such a talented group, and it was my first music video and collaboration project which was very exciting for me. I would have to say a low would be when I began learning how to mix and work with music editing software. It’s always difficult learning a new skill, and although I had some background knowledge it was intimidating because I was teaching myself at first. I encountered lots of technical issues which made me question if I would even be able to continue making music, but with some time and patience I am now more proficient than ever!

How would you describe where you are in your career now? 

I’ve been focusing on music professionally for about a year now, but I would definitely say I am still at the beginning of my career.

Best ways to keep the momentum in your career? 

I think consistency is really important; keeping up to date with your followers and releasing content here and there is a great way to stay connected. Getting people excited for upcoming projects and promoting ahead of time is always helpful as well.

What is the improvement that you’re looking to work on within your career? 

I would love to become more comfortable performing live, which I haven’t done yet. It’s been many years since I’ve been on a stage, so I would love to refresh those skills and work on creating a more prominent stage presence!

You have a really cool project that we’re excited about you talking about! Please share the AMAZING news you have about it with your audience! 

I am very excited to be working on my first album, “Heart Expansion”, which should be releasing sometime this year. I also feel beyond blessed to be teaming up with the extremely talented Vanessa Silberman, who has been working with me to produce this album. I can’t wait for people to listen, I put my heart into each song and I really hope it reflects the love that I have for creating!

Any updates on what you’re planning on dominating next! 

Look out for my album which should be dropping in the near future! Release date TBA

How are you challenging the status quo? 

I think it’s very important to maintain your individuality as an artist. Although I have my influences, I believe creating your own unique and personal image is what really helps to define yourself and your music.

If you could speed up time would you get where you want to go right now or are you enjoying the journey? 

I think it can be a bit overwhelming to picture the future at times, especially when there isn’t a whole lot of certainty in this industry. I would love to reach the point where I am connected with a grander audience, so I can get feedback from fans who I know are listening. In the meantime, I like to remind myself to focus on the small steps ahead.

What is your mantra as artists for 2022? 

Duality is key. Everyone is multifaceted, so never try to fit yourself into a box to appease others. One person’s journey may look completely different than yours, so don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd and show the sides of yourself you never thought you could!

What is something that you have taught a peer that you feel really honored to have done?

Whenever I meet new people I enjoy hearing where they came from and what inspires them. As I go along, I want to teach people to celebrate each other and our differences as individuals. I believe everyone has a unique perspective, and it’s important to embrace that when learning about others’ experiences. You can learn a lot from people’s viewpoints, even if they differ from your own.

What is something a peer has taught you that you feel honor in learning?

I’ve been fortunate to have spoken with people who’ve had a lot of experience in the music industry. I appreciate all of the knowledge they’ve passed on, whether technical or just life related! It’s powerful to recognize that even the biggest names had to start somewhere.

How are you disconnecting in a world that is always plugged in?

I think being self-aware of the content you’re consuming is really important in this day and age. I try to stay off of social media as much as possible, and limit indulging in content when necessary. Constantly comparing yourself and viewing others’ progress may hinder your own creativity and momentum.

Adelide Takes a Bite Out of Temptation in New Disco-Inspired Track “Witness”

Adelide

In an innovative new release, Adelide, a prominent soul-pop artist from NYC, presents “Witness,” a song that artfully combines the rhythmic essence of 80s disco with a contemporary twist. This soulful track explores the theme of forbidden love and is characterized by lush synths, captivating rhythms, and Adelide’s compelling vocals.

“Witness” reinterprets the timeless tale of temptation within the context of a modern, queer romance. Adelide’s emotive and resonant vocals complement vibrant synths and bass lines inspired by funk, resulting in a nostalgic yet refreshingly unique soundscape. The song’s narrative draws parallels to the Garden of Eden, inviting listeners into a realm where passion and surrender intersect, establishing “Witness” as a poignant anthem for those who embrace love boldly.

The music video, directed by Margot Bennett, serves as a visual complement to the song’s themes. Set in a contemporary Garden of Eden, the video features stunning cinematography and choreography that immerse viewers in a dreamlike world of desire and temptation. Notably, the video includes a memorable scene of Adelide biting into a pear—an ironic twist on the forbidden apple—only to humorously spit it out at the crew’s insistence, injecting a touch of humor into the otherwise sensual visual narrative.

Adelide’s “Witness” offers more than just music; it provides an immersive experience for both the auditory and visual senses. With its infectious rhythm and captivating storyline, this track is positioned to make a significant impact in the soul-pop and disco revival genres.

Adelide continues to push artistic boundaries and redefine musical genres, making “Witness” essential listening and its accompanying video a must-see. Immerse yourself in this modern-day Eden and allow Adelide to guide you through the complexities of love in “Witness.”

Azu Yeché stirs a soulful serenity with his new single, “Leave Me Now”

AZU YECHÉ

BritishNigerian artist AZU YECHÉ demonstrates exceptional songwriting and musical talent in his latest single, “Leave Me Now.” This profoundly introspective song masterfully delivers a soul-stirring anthem for anyone who has encountered the heartache of a strained romantic relationship. It was entirely self-written and performed on the guitar, encapsulating the perspective of an individual grappling with a partner’s uncertain commitment.

Yeché’s decision to record his vocals in just one or two takes adds an authentic layer of vulnerability while amplifying the raw emotion of the moment. His collaboration with Jim Lawton in the studio has resulted in a subtle and warm production, allowing the song’s soulful core to shine through. Yeché’s musical style represents a captivating blend of soul, gospel, and African influences reminiscent of artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas, Jordan Mackampa, and Leon Bridges. The slow-paced percussion and serene acoustic strings establish a contemplative ambiance, harmonizing flawlessly with Yeché’s commanding yet relaxed vocal performance.

Lyrically, “Leave Me Now” lays bare a heartfelt plea for genuine love, underscored by Yeché’s emotive delivery. The repeated lines, “If your lovin’ is ruled by someone else, leave me now, oh leave me now, if your lovin’ ain’t as strong as mine, leave me now, oh leave me now,” poignantly express the desperation and resignation of someone choosing to ultimately embrace the painful decision of separation rather than endure a half-hearted affection. His intimate and unguarded approach will enable the audience to deeply sense every pang of honesty expressed through the song.

Leave Me Now” represents a significant addition to any music collection and is a must-listen for enthusiasts of captivating soul music. Yeché, known for his two-part EP, Soul Afrikanah (part one and part two), which delved into his dual identity using folk and soul genres, showcases yet another dimension of his diverse artistry with this single. This further cements his prominent status in the realm of contemporary soul music.
