Image

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

Combining his musical background with the urban lifestyle of Chicago, singer-songwriter Sijay has paved the way for his desire to make music outside the typical guidelines.  He has allowed himself to perfectly merge musical genres to create music that is in a league of its own.

In addition to producing all of his own music as well as music for other artists, he writes all the lyrics, melodies and even scores the horn parts! He has been said to be a mixture between Brian Wilson and Todd Rundgren.

You can’t really associate Sijay with one genre.  He incorporates Neo-Soul and R&B, with a Blues and Jazz influence.  His lyrics compliment the groovy yet edgy sound he achieves.  Transitioning form his last record, which was electronic/dance, Sijay has established his musical talent.

Check out the Pulse Magazine full page feature article for more intimate info on Sijay.

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

Chicago Based Singer-Songwriter Jumps Into Jazz Music With New Album, Detroit Club

Image

With it’s vast musical history and diverse culture, Chicago isn’t the kind of place to just ‘Fit In.’ Hailing from the Windy City, Sijay learned to craft his obsession with the unorthodox, into a nurturing relationship with lyric and song. Not even his musical upbringing could predict the depth of Sijay’s vocal talent; and when you consider his unique musical style, his apathy towards modern convention, and the passion he breathes for redefining the art of songwriting, fitting in just isn’t in the cards.

Sijay’s musical mind is a complex instrument that is a rich marinade of Jazz, neo-soul, and R&B for just over 22 years. Quoting Sijay, “Every note I sings is meaningful; combining beautifully crafted tones with a rich timbre that eludes even the most experienced singers. Drawing inspiration from personal relationships, alternate history paths, and long and winding road trips, I catalogue a tapestry of original music that brings my passion for originality to the forefront.”

His new album “Detroit Club” will be released on November 20th.  Check him out and let me know what you think.  Click here to hear for yourself!

Great new SOUL/R&B artist – K.SON gives Seal a run for the money!~

Have you heard K.Son’s “Now &Forever” Digital CD? I was truly impressed by this newcomer to the R&B/Soul/Smooth Jazz scene. He’s got an awesome voice reminiscent of Ne-yo, Seal or maybe Montel Jordan. I first heard the killer single “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” on Solar Radio. His rendition of the song once made famous by “Tears for Fears” includes his soulful vocals, a raging guitarist &bass player, and an unexpected hip hop riff.
The video is great – check it out at: http://www.vimeo.com/2362858

I was able to get the full album download at Amazon (or you can get the singles) – here’s the link –
http://www.amazon.com/Now-Forever/dp/B001KTXNFE/ref=sr_f3_1?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1235092513&sr=103-1

In a recent interview, he says “If I were to categorize myself in a record store, I would probably be hanging out with the likes of: RES, The Brand New Heavies, Amel Larrieux, Sade, Loose Ends, Jill Scott, Me’shelle NdegeOcello, India.Arie and the Groove Collective.”
I’d like to see him collaborate with anyone of them! I’m gonna keep an eye on K.Son – if he keeps putting out music like this, he’ll no doubt have a big future – and I love discovering talent before everyone else does!
