British/Jamaican and Swedish born singer-songwriter Shenie Fogo draws inspiration from early nineties R&B to create her illustrious soundscapes. “To The Sky” is a tender release from the young artist, the first taste from her upcoming album.

Complimenting the single with a beautiful set of visuals, the track is filled with rumbling synth patterns and soft billows of electronica – Shenie’s vocals blissful against the soft production. “´To The Sky´ is the first song from my new project where I have written all the songs by myself in my bedroom”, she explains. “It’s a very personal song that reflects my thoughts about feeling very little in this world and having big dreams that keeps you pushing even when it feels like you want to give up”.

Beginning her musical journey in 2019 with her debut EP Self, the project is a perfect example of her love for R&B, drawing influence from a diverse array of artists to create a rich tapestry of her own. Using the last year to reconnect with herself, Shenie has taken control of her creative process. As well as writing all her singles, she is also directing her videos and editing imagery for the project.

With the promise of more music to follow, “To The Sky” is a beautiful introduction to Shenie’s undeniable musical talent.
