hmv.com tips... Sevyn Streeter
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising soulstress Sevyn Streeter, let's see what you think of her...
Who Is She?
28-year old Amber Denise Streeter, better known as Sevyn Streeter, has been in music in one way or another for almost a decade now. Once a member of girl bands TG4 and RichGirl, Streeter has only really started making waves in the last year on her own terms. Previously she'd written for the likes of Chris Brown (whose label she's signed to), Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Fantasia, Trey Songz, Ariana Grande, and Tamar Braxton, but she's now striking out on her own with a burgeoning solo career. She's already had one hit single titled 'It Won't Stop', which also featured Brown and went Gold in the US, there are plenty more on the way...
Who Does She Sound Like?
You can hear lots of classic 90s R'N'B in Streeter's sound, particularly the likes of Aaliyah, early Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and the best of Mary J Blige. There's also a distinctly modern flavour to the production on her tracks, think The Weeknd when he casts off some of the fog and goes straight for the juggular.
Why Should I Be Excited?
She's got an incredible voice, the perfect mixture of soulfulness and acerbic, just listen to it.
Can I Hear Something?
Of course! Her latest single 'B A N S' is below for you and you can preview 'Call Me Crazy, But...', the EP it's taken from, on the right of the page.
