…a concept album.
It’s funky and gritty and inside out. It’s upside down. It’s probably all over the place. It is me, as I am right now. The way God has shown me to me. I’ve been trying to write this album since 2013, the year after my last project, but God sat me down for 6 years. He didn’t give me any music. I now know that’s because I didn’t have anything to write about.
So, Concentrated Funk sounds like 5 years of trial by fire, by emotion, by love, by music…
It’s vulnerable and feminine. It’s also in your face and unapologetic.
Concentrated Funk has that vintage 1970’s feel, while still being Nu and feminine. To borrow from one of my favorite artists Llucy Llong, and the artof this project, I feel like if I can depict “the collective elevation of the black man, woman and child as a unit” I will have succeeded with this album. I want to shift the perspective on love, God, relationships, the revolution and the role of the black woman in it.
You will hear rich, lush greens, deep, menacing blues, trusting purples, ravenous reds. Alabama red clay…yellow like warm summer days. Healing oranges. All set to melodic Robot House beats.
A release date is TBA, but enjoy the official video for the first single “Butterfly Doors” available now!
