Sirah One performance at the Metro Chicago, IL


Those lucky enough to be at the Metro (Chicago) early enough on August twelth had their minds blown. Before the sun could set over Wrigleyville the house was a rockin' with a heavy dose of Grammy Award winning rapper-singer Sirah One's opening performance. SPIN Magazine calls the triple threat rapper-singer-songwriter a "shoo-in for Queen of Whatever-She-Needs-To-Be, Dammit."

The highly anticipated EP 'Inhale' on Atlantic Records released this August is a mighty representation of why this rapidly rising star's crossover appeal has gained so much momentum. The electro-edged pop meets hip-hop-mixed with her hard as nails rhymes and a melodic release are witty, heartfelt, R-E-A-L and radio worthy.

Much has been written about Sirah (pronounced "Sigh-rah") but those stories only scratch the surface of emotion you will experience in her music. The tremendous living expressed in songs like Stick Up and You Know You Want It leave an impression of an artist fighting against the grain; not only to survive in the music biz but on the streets as well. It's that experience that makes the air on the other side so much sweeter to breathe, and the music/songwriting shines with that passion. Sirah, so far, has accomplished what very few artists are lucky enough to experience - turning the pain and darkness into light and leaving an influence of hope and strength on the world through music.

Even with a line up as hefty as underground sensation K Flay and Swedish indie pop darlings Icona Pop - Sirah stood front and center and took full command of the stage and night. Most the crowd, pushing against center stage, hands raised high above with fists pumping as to say "We Get You!"

Sirah One will open for 21 Pilots October 18th, at the Pageant in St Louis, MO. check out Sirah's music videos for Double Yellow Lines and My City - then go get your tickets
