Talented Mississippi-raised singer-songwriter KIRBY has released her debut record, Sis.
Berklee College of Music student originally began a career in songwriting by producing a tune a day on YouTube for 275 days. The seven-track release which is her third full-length EP is a generous blend of funk and soul. Sis. provides a deep look into the mind which put together tracks FourFiveSeconds by Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney and Die With You by Beyoncé. Since she’s no slouch when it comes to writing songs, KIRBY manages to serve up a mashup of modern gems.
When reflecting on why she decided to focus purely on herself she shared, “I left the mountain top of one career and went to the valley of another.” She also noted, “But believe me, I see the mountain ahead. And it’s beautiful.”
Kirby offered these following thoughts on Sis, “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,” she said. “It’s what soul music sounds like when a woman falls in love and doesn’t give up her power.”
