Shihori - Soul Trip
(Independent / 4 September 2020)
New York City based singer and songwriter Shihori's new single Soul Trip is atmospheric and ambient. Interesting rhythms and interwoven melodic vocal lines showcase jazzy harmonic progressions in a slow groove mode.
As a songwriter, she uses electronic effects with impeccable musical taste. As a singer, her flexible vocals range from a sweet soprano to a strong mid-range.
A veteran of the Japanese pop scene, Shihori moved to New York City in 2018, a move she talks about in a media release.
"I was so surprised when I came to NY for the first time. Independent and strong women are respected and there are lots of different preferences in music and style. I thought, 'oh my God! This place really accepts uniqueness and freedom! I didn't know there is a place like this totally different world that allows you to be yourself. Everybody looks so different. So many races, colors, cultures, fashion, ideas...I am so happy to be surrounded by colorful people!"
Shihori is planning on a string of singles in the months to come, so we can expect a lot more down the pipe from this interesting artist.
