The 'Summer Pearl' You Need

"My music is a meditation on my past and a reflection on our present. It is both a personal and political message that explores black and women's liberation, love won and love lost. It is heavily influenced by Jazz, Soul, Hip-Hop and Dub; I channel the experiences of ancestors, women and myself to conjure these emotions."
