Introducing…Lil Silva

Lil Silva is an incredibly diverse, ever-changing artist. A producer whose talent knows no bounds, holding production and writing credits for artists like Adele and Mark Ronson, Silva’s solo project comes from the deepest part of his soul, and it shows. His latest offering and debut album, Yesterday Is Heavy, is a splendid showcase of the multiple styles and genres within which he flourishes.

The muses of La Musa: IAMDDB

If the future is female, then it has already started. Diana De Brito is the epitome of a new generation of female artists – young, talented and self-confident. In her music, this daughter of an Angolan musician combines timeless soul and jazz in the tradition of Nat King Cole and Erykah Badu with modern trap and R’n’B. She calls it Urban Jazz, some would say it is Neo Soul – it’s all true, because IAMDDB is anything but one-dimensional.

The muses of La Musa: Mabel

Mabel Alabama-Pearl McVey is an English-Swedish r&b singer and songwriter. A citizen of Spain and Sweden. In 2017, she had her breakthrough with “Finders Keepers”, peaking at number eight on the UK Singles Chart. Her debut studio album was High Expectations.

With her new album ‘About Last Night…’ set for release today, Mabel has shared new track ‘Let Love Go’ featuring US rapper Lil Tecca.

The muses of La Musa: 070 Shake

With her soaring voice, Kanye West affiliate Danielle Balbuena, AKA 070 Shake, has a knack of investing productions with boundless freedom. She cracks West’s 2018 track Ghost Town wide open with a yearning, melodic nostalgia, and on her 2020 debut Modus Vivendi, the New Jersey-born rapper croons through everything from forlorn synthpop to bass-heavy rhythm.

On the heels of her successful album tour 070 Shake shares a new visualizer for the album track, “Blue Velvet”, directed by her creative companions, C.O.R.E. The new visual directly follows her highly-anticipated sophomore album, You Can’t Kill Me, released to widespread acclaim from critics and fans alike via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Recordings earlier this month.

The muses of La Musa: UMI

Rising Seattle-born and now LA-based musician Tierra Umi Wilson (better known as just UMI) is a perfect embodiment of her middle name, which translates to “ocean” in Japanese. Her music—an amalgamation of lo-fi beats, intense soul, and poignantly simple lyricism—radiates a quiet and compelling peace, not unlike that found in breaking ocean waves. And being half-Black and half-Japanese, UMI has rooted her identity in fluidity. It should come as no surprise, then, that breaking barriers in music seems to come naturally for her.

The muses of La Musa: Muni Long

Priscilla Renea, creatively known as Muni Long, is a new name to the general public, but the R&B/Soul singer-songwriter is known in the music industry as a successful songwriter. To her credit, she has written for some of today’s favourite pop stars like Fifth Harmony (‘Worth It’), Rihanna (‘California King Bed’), Selena Gomez (‘Who Says’), and others. Now, the Florida-bred artist is stepping into the spotlight to sing about love, wanting to stop loving, and meeting someone who made her not give up on adoration. She has just released a new Ep: Public Dispalys of Affection.

The muses of La Musa: Amber Mark


Amber Mark
 knows how to make music that goes the distance. Born out of a love of music and travel Amber Mark‘s sound knows no bounds. After her 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Engineered Album Amber got right back to work, determined to keep pushing full speed ahead. Amber Mark isn’t affraid to push the boundaries of her music.
