Recording artist name “Sai” pronounced “Say” is a 26 years old singer/songwriter living in Los Angeles with Chicago roots drops a new track called “Proud Of Yourself”. Music has always been a huge part of his life, but it wasn’t until he got his first acoustic guitar at 16 and started writing and singing songs that he realized music was one of his passions. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Artists who were influential to me during this time were The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Lord Huron, Iron and Wine, Bahamas, Toro Y Moi, Mumford & Sons, Young the Giant, etc. I love these artists because of their ability to intertwine the mundaneness of life so beautifully with life’s ups and downs. With that being said, I’ve also always had a very strong connection to R&B, Soul music, Hip Hop, and Pop. I have gained inspiration from artists like Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Drake, Khalid, 6Lack, Sam Cooke, The Temptations, and so many others. I was drawn to these particular genres because of the care-free attitude, the freedom and creativity found in the production, and the musical arrangement. My musical journey has been one of existing on opposite ends of the spectrum only to be inevitably pulled to the middle. These experiences provided me the inspiration needed to create my debut EP entitled “Out of Context”.
