Montreal based vocalist Shay Lia touches places other artists can't reach.
Working with production talent such as Planet Giza and Kaytranada certainly helps, but in truth she's a true original, capable of melding impeccable influences into something incisive.
New single 'Good Together' is a case in point. The murky production is channelled by Romeo & Fils, and it's a moody, soft-burning R&B jewel.
Out now, CARAZ directs the visuals and it places Shay Lia's work in this nostalgic landscape, a mosaic of influences from the 70s to the present day.
Picking up on her effortless style, there's a seductive element that allows Shay Lia to truly perform in the video.
Tune in now.
