Shuanise is part of the new, very cosmopolitan nu-soul movement. She was born in the US, was raised and still lives in London while having a Nigerian ancestry. This particular tune was to be found on her ‘Voice of Reason’ EP , released by UpMyAlley, that was put out in 2009. It is produced by fLako, and his beats provide the perfect backdrop for Shuanise’s soulful vocals.
I have become such a sucker for everything neo-soul and I don’t know how this tune possibly got past me. One of my favorite finds this year.
