West Australian Hip-Hop Artist Sowdy returns with a funk-based and groove-filled single ‘Love’, the lead single to his upcoming album Shine!, set to release on the 8th of May and the rest of the 14 track experience to follow no later than June this year!
A multi-talented engineer, producer, and artist, Sowdy’s latest single Love is the final length to a string of past promotional single releases for his album Shine!. With recent releases such as 2020 Rap Talk and Sunshine, Sowdy’s own production is elevated to both a higher level of complex and intricate. Each instrument is carefully woven together to create a sound that gives credence to the comparison made to artists like Anderson.Paak, Kendrick Lamar, Young Thug, and A Tribe Called Quest.
“My music is here to represent that there is beauty in the struggle, and regardless of past trauma, struggles, etc, there are brighter days ahead. My ultimate goal is to have my art help soundtrack those better times.” – Sowdy
With music being a part of his greater childhood years, Sowdys influences run deep in artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Andre 3000, and many more that are considered icons in Hip-Hop and Music culture. He’s no stranger to contemporary Hip-Hop as well, being influenced by newer artists like Smino, Goldlink, and much more which truly makes his sound a blend of contemporary and traditional elements.
A rising star at it’s finest, media publications have taken notice at Sowdy throughout his 2-year run with publications like Pilerats, Vice, and AU Dollars giving him a cosign. He has also appeared on the Pilerats showcase and received regular spins on triple j and triple j unearthed.
When the coast clears for the current situation around the world, Sowdy plans to push through with a tour surrounding the album’s release. Make sure to follow Sowdy on all his socials below for more updates about this upcoming tour and future releases!
