Blessed with a voice steeped in the great soul tradition of yesterday, Shoshyn is a performer whose talent and focus has quickly earned him buzz as a legend in todays time. With his debut release, Sincerely Yours (Affiliated Records), Shoshyn proves himself to be worthy of such praise
A native of Philadelphia, Shoshyn (pronounced Show Shine) grew up immersed in the rich power of music. Born into a religious family, Shoshyn sang alongside his siblings in church and reveled in the talents of Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson and Donny Hathaway. Indeed, it is Hathaways presence that is most felt on Sincerely Yours, which even includes a cover of Song For You, made famous by the late artist
Already a formidable presence in the music industry, Shoshyn has written songs with George Benson, superstar Joe and Clive Davis right hand man, Joshua P. Thompson all while still in his 20s. His songwriting muscles continue to flex on Sincerely Yours, nineteen tracks that run the gamut of emotions. From party bangers, to longing ballads and inspirational numbers Sincerely Yours is a winner from start to finish. Featuring the production talents of Muti-Platinum Producer Rockwilder, Ozone, Rockit Productions, and more, the record tells the story of a young man going through lifes travails with surprising grace and clarity. Of the record, Shoshyn says I want people to listen to this record and understand where strength comes from, in various ways. Im testifying
Standout tracks on the album include Backstabbers, which features a posthumous appearance by 2Pac, the mid-tempo Love To Love You, the title track Sincerely Yours and My Skin, which Shoshyn describes as a comforting love song to those not physically with us.
Shoshyns smooth-as-silk voice, capable of sweeping octaves within one measure, brings the well-crafted songs of Sincerely Yours to life. The biggest measure of greatness that a vocalist can possess is an ability to connect with his audience, whether on record or on the stage. Those who served as musical mentors for our generation had it and Shoshyn promises to carry on that legacy.
It is a sonic dedication to you - Sincerely Yours, Shoshyn.
