New York’s own HeIsTheArtist is already gearing up for a big 2022. To cap the year off, he gives us the lead single from his next EP, The Faded Outro. A lo-fi take on singer-songwriter Snoh Aalegra’s song, it perfectly encapsulates how to make a fresh cover. Deviating away from the original, his take on the record plays into his neo-gospel strengths, and his vocal performance might just be one of his best yet. A more religious light is shone on the lyrics, painting it as a helping hand from God and an offer of reassurance during your darkest moments. This is just the first of many releases for HeIsTheArtist, as the aforementioned EP is scheduled for an April release.
Heistheartist (He Is The Artist) is an American Christian singer-songwriter from Central Islip, NY. Formerly a secular neo-soul singer signed to “Bentley Records” under his biological name “LeeMann Bassey,” Heistheartist discovered that his true calling was with the Lord after hearing an inspiring sermon by TD Jakes online one day. That day he was inspired to teach the world about the Lord, like TD Jakes did with his Sermon, but through music.
