Sijay Releases New Latest Album, Detroit Club, and Gives Away Free Music Download

Image

Sijay’s album “Detroit Club” released on Tuesday, November 20 opens his audience up to a musical psyche molded into an intricate device that has been resting in a rich marinade of Neo Soul, R&B, and Jazz Fusion. The epitome of a triple threat, Sijay is a producer, songwriter and mixer.

Most of the lyrics are about trials of human emotion, playing on common themes like love and loss from a different perspective. Many songs are about hypothetical situations occurring to an over-curious protagonist. Songs range from the goings on at a seedy night club with hot tubs on every other floor, to a chance encounter with a girl who wears clothes from the 80’s and spikes her hair every morning.

Sijay’s musical background and the urban lifestyle of Chicago has established a desire to not follow the typical music rules, and has allowed him to flawlessly merge genres to constantly create music that is in a league of its own. Fitting in has never been so out of style.

In celebration of the new album “Detroit Club” and the upcoming holidays his label is giving away the full length lead single coincidentally titled “Detroit Club” when you sign up for Sijay’s newsletter. To get your free download, Click here
