Mother. Creator, singer, songwriter. Piano, vocal, yoga instructor. Millennial woman.
It's so refreshing when an artist offers transparency with their art & so mutually beneficial- so healing for both them & us when they are able to do this while holding space & sanctuary for themselves as well.
This is the wave that Suai Kee rides these days with songs that reflect the ebbing & flowing of the heart, a new confidence that one can only gather doing the soul work & the victory that is gained as a result.
As a creative she is not new to this. In early 2005 her unmistakable talent got her signed to Motown Records & since then she has been ever unfolding adding a B.A. in Film, continuing to mentor teens, touring with artists like Estelle & Solange, & starting her own label, Fire Sign Recordings to name only a few of her recent undertakings.
In her current work as an independent singer - producer you can see and feel in all her transparency the powerful effects of her commitment to a spiritual practice (not quite Buddhist but Gohonzon altar life lit), wellness practice (vegan-ish & yoga life) & how she has been transformed.
She is part unicorn, whole self savior, & all of the unapologetic Black Girl Magic you've read about. She brings with her the whole East Side & all of its conjure. She is her ancestors wildest dreams & if you pay attention the music might awaken you to your own.
