Representing The New Philadelphia, lawdSwayze is here to bring us something more than just that ‘turn up’ music. They’re here to bring back soul samples and dope rhymes. The Philly duo’s first offering is a smooth track titled “Olympian.”
Philly songbird Toy Taha made her initial appearance on the site back in the summertime. She shared her song “Memories” and it made a pretty respectable impression. Since then she has released her debut EP, I Am Woman. With the single being so well received, thought readers might enjoy the brief album too. It’s described as the motions of a woman as she transitions in and out of relationships. Taha takes the listener through a gauntlet of scenarios including: making love, fighting to hold on to love, and more. She wraps the experiences in a variety of R&B styles ranging from Progressive to Soulful. Find out which romantic based escapades lingered with the site after the break.
Toy Taha is a singer/songwriter/blogger from Philadelphia, PA. She is a soulful being who is inspired by old school greats such as Janet Jackson, Teena Marie, Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, etc. Her writing is based on her life experiences, her loved ones, and her surroundings. Also, she has a pretty traditional yet extensive background in music. She grew up with the art form in her home, performed with other girls in her neighborhood, was part of school choirs, and developed her writing skills from poetry. Her end game is for her music to go on to touch people as other artists have touched and inspired her. Her first effort in achieving said goal will be her debut EP, I Am Woman. She reached out to site with two of the singles that will appear on the project. “Memories” will be covered in this review and “Move On Without You” can be heard here.
