KIRBY Unveils Highly Anticipated Debut EP Sis.
Memphis-born, Mississippi-raised songstress KIRBY doesn’t want you to hear her music, she wants you to taste it. Like a plate at Sunday dinner, KIRBY’s debut EP Sis. is undeniably satisfactory.
Following the release of her lead single “We Don’t Funk”, the EP offers a healthy dose of 70s nostalgia blended seamlessly with the bold female empowerment themes of the new century that especially speak to women of color.
As much as I want all women to love this music, I need women of color to hear it and know certain narratives about us are simply not true… It’s what soul music sounds like when a woman falls in love and doesn’t give up her power. – KIRBY
The refreshing 7-track Neo-soul project uplifts its listeners with buttery vocals, hypnotizing guitar rhythms, and pulsating basslines. ‘Sis.’ firmly cements KIRBY as an artist in her own right, after years of crafting songs for the other stars of today.
The decision to focus on her solo music wasn’t an easy one, and it didn’t work out overnight. “I left the mountain top of one career and went to the valley of another,” she explains. “But believe me, I see the mountain ahead. And it’s beautiful.”
KIRBY is the incredibly talented writer behind “FourFiveSeconds” by Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney, “Tell Me You Love Me” by Demi Lovato, “Die With You” by Beyoncé, “Only One” by Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and “Break Your Heart Right Back” by Ariana Grande.
