The lustrous jazz R&B songwriter and performing artist Seyblu represents a diverse femme community with a fierce fashion sense and enchanting live show. She’s been building a memorable sound that weaves dreamy jazz chords with intimate songwriting and whimsical vocals to create a fresh R&B sound. On her most recent EP, Silk Sessions, Seyblu embarked on a rural cabin retreat with producer SLWJMZ (Saukrates, Clear Mortifee, Boy Pape). Complete with a wilderness soundscape of birds, insects, and rain, Silk Sessions brings romantic imagery to life through vulnerable lyrics, sultry R&B melodies, and layered vocal harmonies.
In the latest single, Backwards, Seyblu has prepared a touching piece where she describes finding her “rock in the rapids” with a new lover. The R&B ballad features an intentionally sparse accompaniment of acoustic piano and cello, giving her voice a strong lead presence, drawing the listener in until the song erupts in harmonies at the end. Find it wherever you listen to music.
