Nights (Feel Like Getting Down) (feat. Rahsaan Patterson)
Good And Strong
Sy Smith has long since solidified her place in underground soul music. This Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/producer helped cultivate the nu-soul scene in that city more than ten years ago, a scene which now easily boasts some of the most progressive artists of that genre to date, many of whom came directly from Sy’s own band line-ups (Thundercat, Ronald Bruner Jr., Kamasi Washington).
Her multi-faceted career boasts of 5 solo studio albums (the most recent of which she wrote & produced entirely herself), and collaborations with the likes of Zo!, The Foreign Exchange, Phonte, Sheila E, Meshell Ndegeocello, Chris Dave, Macy Gray and many more. Her jazz chops keep her on the road steadily as a featured guest with Grammy-winning trumpeter Chris Botti.
