EP Stream: Sylvan LaCue (@sylvanlacue) & Fortune – Evangeline [Audio]
Sylvan LaCue & Fortune
By Jack Barnes
“The creation of the Evangeline EP came about fairly effortless,” Miami artist Sylvan LaCue revealed toPigeons & Planes in their premiere of the 5-track project that they explained “shares stories of self-discovery.” Produced entirely by Flo-Fi Collective’s Fortune, who contributed to GoldLink’s The God Complex, the EP finds 25-year-old Sylvan LaCue glowing with excitement and as vulnerable as any artist you’ve heard before. “Fortune & I were going back & forth for about a week during Thanksgiving weekend earlier this year. He provided the soundtrack to the story I wanted to convey. I cut four of the songs in a matter of a week, and pulled together ‘First Flight To Oakland’ the day before the EP was scheduled to be released.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Formerly known as QuESt, Sylvan LaCue teased the Evangeline EP earlier this week with the “Caravan 04” single, featuring Linzi Jai, which debuted via Complex. “It’s clear on his latest track ‘Caravan 04’ that LaCue is finding inspiration in the right places,” they said. “The craziest thing about evolution is that you never see it coming,” Sylvan LaCue expressed in a recent journal to his fans. Last year Sylvan LaCue abandoned his deal with Visionary Music Group, which required him to focus on his career alone. After falling in love during a trip to Oakland, he decided to start going by his real name, Sylvan LaCue, with the QuESt alias having become more of a character that he was growing out of. Learning to embrace himself helped Sylvan LaCue explore his artistry even further, as he began working on music with a group of producer friends. Titled after his aforementioned girlfriend, the Evangeline EP is both a post-Far From Familiar story and a prequel to an album slated for early 2016.
