When asked what she would do if she wasn’t a singer, Sidibe replied “I would be trying to be a singer.” Considering her five octave vocal range and a voice described as ethereal, pure and lush, it is the obvious choice. Sidibe’s singular pursuit led the singer/songwriter to LA where she found her musical doppelgänger in Finnish producer Nico Stadi.
It also took her down unexpected roads including trips to Africa to connect with her family in Senegal, deep immersion into musical vaults, a renewed love affair with the guitar, work on projects with Nas and Common, and days, weeks and months spent writing and recording. The culmination of these experiences is Sidibe’s forthcoming EP You Got the Luck.
With this EP, Sidibe and Nico brought together their love of R&B, funk, house, pop and world music. They also brought in the talents of Grammy winning producers Warryn Campbell and Jack Splash to help create the perfect storm of organic and programmed elements. The release of her You Got the Luck EP is on the horizon and singer/songwriter Sidibe lets us know what we have to look forward to with her single “I’m Only Dreaming”.
