SLED ISLAND SPOTLIGHT: SINZERE
This Sled Island Spotlight focuses on hip-hop/R&B musician, Sinzere. She brings her unique genre bending style to our show alongside numerous other acts.
From her humble beginnings growing up on the streets of Calgary, Alberta, renowned artist Sinzere has come a long way. The struggles she faced in her youth fashioned her into the strong, artistically gifted woman she is today. Using the obstacles she faced to her advantage — but not allowing them to hold her back from following her dreams — she’s used her experiences to shape her singular sound. She’s channeled all of her experiences, all of her pain, all of her passion, and all of herself, into her music.
Drawing inspiration from various artists in various genres like rapper Biggie, R&B singer-songwriter Toni Braxton, and soul musician Lauryn Hill, Sinzere creates music in a genre all of its own. She mixes the best elements of hip-hop, R&B, rap, and electronic into one distinctive blend. Sinzere is able to skillfully maneuver between beats and flows accompanied by sometimes powerful, sometimes political, and always poetic lyrics. Evidenced by her unique musical style, Sinzere is a true bohemian. The bohemian image is one that Sinzere highlights in her music, through her music’s refusal to adhere to conventional ruled

Winning awards, making killer videos, singing/rapping/freestyling over sick, thick beats: all just another day at the office for Sinzere. She’s a self-proclaimed Bohemian, an avant-garde free spirit who has no room in her life for your drama; she’s too busy honouring her craft. From dancer to award-winning DJ to lyricist/songwriter/hip hop champion, all of Sinzere’s previous and ongoing passions alchemize in her fierce, charismatic performances. She has an expert ear for melody, rhythm and rhyme and uses her voice and words to transport rock, jazz, soul, R&B or reggae to new places but, honestly, the genre is almost inconsequential. For all her Bohemian tendencies, Sinzere is a savvy, unrelenting creator who is amassing a fortune in unique musical currency.

“From Biggie to Toni Braxton, Sinzere’s influences are varied, explaining why demolishing different beats seems effortless to her. She switches comfortably between silky flows and poetically-punchy bars to singing like R&B was her full-time gig. Sinzere doesn’t need any features to carry a track—they’d probably just block her shine, anyway.”
“Flow. Sinzere has it, effortlessly mixing hip-hop, funk, R&B and soul in a rapid-fire delivery.”
