Music Monday: Gina Lee New York Sessions

Gina Lee New York SessionsWe’re already rollin’ into the lazy days of Summer just as RnB songstress and Toronto native Gina Lee is rollin’ in and out of Los Angeles for a quick visit in preparation for her forthcoming EP New York Sessions release on August 7th.

Friday,” which comes off her upcoming EP, features Vinny Cha$e of Epic Records, who will also be directing the accompanying music video that features Bowlegged Lou of the film House Party.

Gina’s voice has been described as, “…smooth and soulful, but has an understated kick or bite that makes the record’s breakup narrative feel more authentic.” New York Sessions has a throwback vibe to it, and will appeal to fans of the 90’s female hip-hop/RnB era, while still remaining on the cutting edge of modern pop.

We just like the vibe.
