Listen: 222 EP - @SadeEmoni

I just want to start this by Congratulating Nicole Fowler and Josh Hagwood for opening up the 10Ten Art Gallery in Orange, NJ last weekend.

In true fashion they opened the building with a night of performances from poets, rappers, and singers. During the evening there was a lot of great acts playing in front of the incredible Music Cafe band but the one that really caught my eye (ear rather) was Sadé Emoni. Her set began with a few covers and I must say what I enjoyed about her is her interaction with the crowd. Although unorthodox I've never heard an acoustic cover of Drunk in Love, and not for nothing she crushed it. If you ever get the chance go see her live. After the show, I introduced myself and did my research and listened to her 222 EP that dropped last year. Just like her live set she takes risks with her riffs and runs. I like that. She didn't play it safe and was sangin' (past tense, SANGIN'). At opening night of the gallery she performed Always. I must say as much as I enjoyed it live I like the studio version just as well. She's a beast and modulates so well. The concept of the project is dope and the skits take you on a journey of the contemporary relationship. I really want you guys to listen to this project. I think it's a wonderful introduction to a new artist on the WTM radar. I need you to feel this. Listen to 222 EP below.
