Snoh Aalegra is truly one of the most exciting voices in recent time.
Her unique, lush sound evokes the soulful essence of her idols such as Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, and Aretha Franklin, yet lined with an authenticity and raw emotion that is unparalleled and a deep sense of “outsiderdom” that is largely universal.
After being sampled on Drake’s More Life, Snoh was brought to the forefront of the music scene and hasn’t left since. Her breakout 2017 album, FEELS, received massive acclaim and global recognition – including praise from the iconic Prince, who was her mentor for two years before he passed.
–Ugh, those feels again, Snoh’s sophomore album that will be released on 16 August, delves into the forces and feelings that fill the walls of her sound and mind – self love, independence, alienation, anxiety, toxic relationships and love, growth and hopefulness. She attributes her inspiration to experiences of her life as an Iranian woman who’s long felt like an outsider and is now coming into her own.
Snoh Aalegra has already collaborated with celebrated artists and producers such as John Mayer, Common, Vince Staples, Logic, No I.D., Boi-1da, and many more.
