about

Fay Grim uses elements of jazz, gospel, hip hop, future soul, haus, afrobeat, spoken word and electronic music to visit topics such as abortion, race relations, friendships, self doubt, depression, betrayal, domestic violence, alcoholism, love, hope, religion, victory and ultimately self-acceptance. Arguably the "New African-American" or the "New Black" has become an auxiliary to the "New Negro" presented in the 1920's as we reach the Centennial celebration of the Harlem Renaissance in 2020. The album begins with "Faytal Silence", a rework of James Weldon Johnson's "Lift Every Voice and Sing"; which is meant to be an artist's call-to-action presented thru a creative lens of an artist accepting a role in the new wave of color consciousness, androgynous femininity, and social rebellion.
