INTERVIEW: Shi Wisdom w/ Share Newspaper

rez | Interviews | Friday, August 24th, 2012

Shi blesses the cover of the latest issue of Share. Here’s the excerpt and peep the full article below.

Local singer/songwriter Renee ‘Shi’ Wisdom is on a roll. Her song, “R.I.P. (I’m Ready For Ya)”, which she co-wrote with Toronto alum, Drake, appears on Rita Ora’s debut album, and sits high atop the UK music charts. And she recently launched her EP, “LVSPK”, at an event that sold out in the first 72 hours. Not bad for someone who only started to seriously focus on her music career over the past two years.

“The real world is where I should have been to begin with,” says the promising artist. She says she realized that she belonged in the arts world, more specifically, working in music, and the former York University student who majored in French couldn’t be happier.

“I am completely fluent and I love the language but music is where I want to be.”

Wisdom focuses on a different type of language these days – music – which she creatively presents in her latest EP. LVSPK is a very honest collection of material in which she experiments with different musical stylings. She admits that the collection is a cohesive sound that allows the audience to sit down and listen to the way it is performed – it’s something to be analyzed.

With no formal vocal training and some lessons in piano, a love of music appears to course through her veins.

“My grandfather talked to me and gave me advice about the business,” she says. And her grandfather is none other than Jimmy Wisdom who was part of the musical duo Bob & Wisdom in the 60s. Wisdom owns and operates Wisdom’s Barber Shop and Beauty Salon in the Eglinton & Dufferin area.

“I always knew Shi was musical,” says the soft-spoken barber who has been cutting hair in this city for over 40 years and who now finds comfort singing in his church choir. It wasn’t until recently that Jimmy Wisdom sat down and listened to her music which is ironic because she admits that she never really heard her grandfather perform until recently when he started singing in the church.

NEW MUSIC: ELMNT – All Figured Out feat. Lyve (Prod. Lyve)

rez | Music | Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

Lyve‘s beats are so proper! Like…old school boom bap but still new sounding. Not a lot of producers can walk that fine line like he can. Here’s the blurb from ELMNT himself:

ELMNT – All Figured Out (Prod. Lyve)

All Figured Out is the latest free offering from Toronto emcee ELMNT. With production by Lyve (Tona, HighDEF) this release of All Figured Out serves as the leading single off the “Stara-Nova mixtape”, a collection of ELMNT’s favorite cuts to date.

Stara-Nova mixtape is the first of three forthcoming projects set to be released in the following months. Following this tape will be the release of “Dorian Grey”, a collaboration EP with Juno nominated Emcee/Producer Muneshine.

Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/elmntmusic/elmnt-all-figured-out-f-lyve

Direct Link to mp3: Get it Now

“Peace. Wrote this last summer at the HighDEF headquarters. Ironically we were trying to piece together a joint & kept being interrupted by Century Room’s shitty DJ doing his warm-up sets to some industrial night Canadian artists purged over for, probably in hopes to fool themselves into quasi-stardom.

Anyways, L’s were smoked, not a fuck was given, life was lived. All Figured Out.”
