LISTEN | Kae Sun Showcases Raw Vocals And Soulful Vibes On "Canary"
Kae Sun is on our radar.
This Ghanaian-Canadian singer/songwriter from Toronto, currently residing in Montreal caught our attention when we watched the video for his single "Ship and The Globe" -
His raw vocals and musical abilities took us by surprise. He's got a way to swoon you over through his unusually pitched vocals, meticulously placed to catch you off-guard in a good way. This is something not a lot of artists have the ability to successfully do, which is why we think this up and comer is about to blow up on the scene.
Currently working on his forthcoming album set to release in 2017, Kae Sun is planning the release of his next EP titled Canary for Feb. 2017. His first single, which also goes by the same title, just got released on all digital platforms, and you can listen to it below.
We decided to ask him a few questions to satisfy our curiosity, so scroll through the Q&A and listen to the tune after the jump.
How would you describe Kae Sun in under 140 characters?
I'm an artist
When did you start making music vs. when you started gaining traction online ?
I’ve been performing and writing music in some shape or form since I was really young.
my previous record Afriyie which was released in 2013 got a lot of people to pay attention.
You garnered over 3 million views on the music video for "Ship & the globe" - How involved were you in the making of the video?
That's the director Mike Mcglaughlin’s work, him and my old manager Marshall had a lot to do with that video.
You recently moved to Montreal to pursue music. How is Montreal different than Toronto when it comes to making music?
Although I find myself more inspired in Montreal when it comes to music I didn’t move just for my music career. Montreal is my kind of city in lots of other ways, there’s a creative pulse here thats hard to find in other cities i've lived in so far.
You are about to release your Canary EP in a few months. Could you describe it?
