Further carving out it’s place as the home for cutting-edge R&B, Fresh Selects is proud to present the beginning of something special.
A formidable songwriter working behind the scenes with major R&B stars for years now - Inglewood, L.A.-based multi-talent, SiR, is now stepping to the forefront with his official solo debut.
Effortlessly combining his instantly recognizable voice and universally relatable songwriting with the rawness of the indie L.A. beat scene - SiR defines his own sound that’s both refreshingly new and immediately digestible at the same time. A rare combination of mass appeal and artistic integrity, he’s poised to bring pop appeal to the underground, and substance and a unique ear for production to the mainstream.
On his full-length debut, Seven Sundays, his writing covers the full spectrum of a relationship - from infatuation to heartbreak, playful indulgence to addictive co-dependency, and ultimately, growth through letting go. Throughout the album’s 14 tracks, each one single-worthy in it’s own right, SiR flexes his pen game through both personal soul-bearing, vivid storytelling and lighthearted shit-talking alike.
SiR’s recent writing placements include Jill Scott’s new single “Fool’s Gold,” plus forthcoming songs by Melanie Fiona (including a duet w/ Mr. Stevie Wonder), Robert Glasper & Anita Baker, Bilal & Tweet, Tyrese & Marsha Ambrosius, and about a dozen others.
His debut LP also boasts an all-star line-up of producers, including Knxwledge (known for his work with Kendrick Lamar, Joey BADA$$ and Blu), Iman Omari (Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Ty Dolla $ign), DK The Punisher (Justin Bieber, Dom Kennedy), Chris Dave (Blue Note recording artist, drummer for Adele, D’Angelo), J LBs (Jhene Aiko, Casey Veggies), Alvin Isaacs II (Boyz II Men, Trey Songz) and Tiffany Gouché (Iggy Azalea, Little Simz) - making it an audible time capsule of an exciting moment-in-time for an entire new wave of Los Angeles talent.
With all of the stars aligned in it’s favor, it’s a safe bet that Seven Sundays will prove in time to be the seminal West Coast R&B album of 2015!
