An Interview With K-Syran
A fresh new release from K-Syran brings out a lush and beautiful combination of massive jazz tonality, and R&B approach, and a pop subtlety that manages to get wrapped up with gorgeous and Soulful vocals that tie everything together with a charming and alluring style.
The inappropriate album is completely brimming with personality and character that lets you get attached to the artist in different ways from song to song.
These tracks are lush with horn sections and an absolutely colorful array of instrumentation that gives the songs a contemporary edge but also a vibrant undertone.
The record itself is packed with hooks and they pop in from song to song in different ways but they all have a way of grabbing hold of you and keeping you there.
Everything about the performances on this album are graceful. The instruments are performed with such a wonderful attention to dynamic flow and the art is vocals are just perfected.
The way that she flows in and out of the songs giving them their special touches and showing her sense of presence as a person and an artist is a little awe-inspiring at times.
As the album progresses you start to get different vibes. With all the natural instrumentation involved, there is a great amount of digital instrumentation as well and that in itself lets the album naturally balance.
You get these bright pop songs between these smooth R&B tracks and throughout the record . You get a sense of the breakup between the styles and it lets the whole thing breathe.
This is a very unique and different approach and K-Syran has absolutely pegged it as her own.
She is enticing, charming, and obviously has a pure love for her craft that bleeds through with every note.
With surprises around every corner this is the type of album that you listen to as a whole.
This is for music lovers. Real music lovers. Musicians will love this, and anyone that's passionate about music will love this just as much.
There are definite gems throughout the album but they're all different from one another.
So you get this kind of fantasy element that sticks.
With the release of such a wondrous album, we wanted to have a sit down with K-Syran to see where all of this actually came from and what might be next for the artist.
Here's what went down.
TSWS: Let's kick things off with the Inappropriate album. This record had a very beautiful and cinematic undertone! Where did this album come from?

TSWS: When did this all start for you? When did you fall in love with music?
-from birth as my dad is a musician. I’ve been singing in front of people as long as I can remember . To live a life without music would be grey and so very sad.
TSWS: What inspires you to write a song?
