R&B vanguard Brent Faiyaz, released his highly-anticipated debut fulllength
project Sonder Son on October 13. The project marks a return
to form for Faiyaz, serving as his first solo release since last year's A.M.
Paradox EP, and proves to be an amalgamation of Faiyaz's introspective
yet relatable lyrics and authentically crafted productions.
The Maryland native plans on living forever through his music. Crafting
a musical identity that slinks between the hero and the villain, the
heartbreaker and the lovesick, the bold and the vulnerable, he walks a
long and twisted path of multi-faceted complexity. Faiyaz has a supple,
gentle tenor, with his distinct falsetto recalling the ballads of the ‘90s in
technical ability and softness. Possessing a variety of influences from
Frank Sinatra to Marvin Gaye, authenticity in his music is key.
Releasing his EP A.M. Paradox in 2016, Faiyaz quickly drew attention
through noted singles including "Poison" and the EP's centerpiece
"Invite Me." A warm, rich, layered and soulful release, A.M.
Paradox placed Faiyaz's gifts as a skilled vocalist, writer and R&B stylist
at the forefront. Faiyaz's vocal collaboration with Goldlink on "Crew"
earned RIAA Platinum certification. The single hit #1 on Billboard's Top
Emerging Artists Chart, reached #16 on Rap Airplay, and at 15-weeks
on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart holds #45 and climbing.
A member of trio Sonder alongside producers Atu and Dpat, the group
delivered a proper introduction with the release of their first single "Too
Fast" ahead of their debut EP INTO - dubbed by Complex as one of
2017's Best Albums. Faiyaz's release of Sonder Son follows the INTO
North American Tour with his band Sonder, where he performed in
noted cities including Atlanta, D.C., NYC, and LA alongside bandmates
and producers Atu and Dpat.
