Nyah Grace, My Sista Told Me Review
Teenage artist Nyah Grace has a deep love of soulful R&B. Her voice is equally poised with a maturity and propensity way beyond her years. Grace is a teenage artist able to bridge the gap of her generation to longtime soul listeners. Originally from rural Oregon, Nyah grew up listening to Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo, and Estelle, artists whose neo-soul sound echoes the jazzy chord progressions of those early icons she admired, like Billie Holiday. Her debut album Honey-Coloured will hit the streets on July 24th, with a double-A side single featuring “My Sista Told Me” and “I Don’t Really.”
Positives: “My Sista Told Me” is a blend of pop, soul, and R&B with the hip mechanics of jazz and mow-town. Bottom Line: “My Sista Told Me” has all the trappings of classic soul, mixed with modernity of equal parts funk and the seductiveness that R&B offers. Grace has an old school quality to her voice that pairs well with the tune’s sunny disposition. The rhythmic staccato melody of the verse is offset by the smooth sound of the chorus based on the paradigm of soul. The song is performed with Grammy Award-winner Corinne Bailey-Rae. Grace and Bailey-Rae co-wrote the song together, with a longtime collaborator of Bailey-Rae, producer Steve Chrisanthou, who produced some of Corinne’s biggest hits. The result is a richness that resonates with pure honied delight. That’s the short of it!
