I’d first heard about Saidah from Boston Fielder, who was trying to get her here for this year’s URB Alt Festival. I knew if Boston was checking for her, there must be something special going on here. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to make it. But I’m happy to say that there’s a lot happening. The track here is from an in-studio acoustic performance that she did at a Canadian radio station. But you can certainly here the power and the charisma in her voice.
Apparently, she created a lot of buzz after circulating her demos that were recorded on her mobile phone. Currently, Saidah is finishing her full-length album and I, for one, am looking forward to hearing it.
