Sultry pop-R&B songstress ANISE is ready to leave her mark. More than a decade after her first bedroom writing sessions, ANISE’s awaited debut delivers intoxicating melody, lush vocal harmony and poetic truth-telling.
Her warm tone captivates and soothes, the years of late-night jazz jams in New York and France hinted at in her fresh approach. Originally from New York, her artistry took off after a move to London in 2018. “I’m a classic girl with nostalgia for the mid-century Black American artist experience in Europe.” She draws inspiration from iconic siren performers, including Sade, Eartha Kitt, and Janet Jackson, and ranks the likes of SZA, Snoh Aalegra, Victoria Monet and Sinead Harnett among her contemporary influences. Her debut EP, Black Eve, explores themes of independence, womanhood and authentic empowerment. An ode to goddess intuition, it is due for self-release 2021.
