New recording artist Sami Sol was born in Brooklyn, NY to a single mother who worked extremely tirelessly to make sure Sami had everything she needed to excel in the arts. The 24 year old artist had a unique upbringing filled with diverse musical experiences. Sami Sol began taking her music more seriously at age 19, crafting her own authentic sound from the ground up, and hasn’t looked back since.
“I Hope” is Sami Sol’s latest realest and we can’t get enough of this dreamy single. Laced with smooth R&B backbeats and a contemporary pop sound, Sami layers her sultry vocals over the catchy melody. “I Hope” is a track of well wishes and positivity with slight undertones of melancholy and yearning. Sami Sol knows that no one will ever measure up to love she gives but she’s grown enough to know that it wasn’t meant to be. At just over 2 minutes, Sami is able to tell a story through he relatable lyricism. Sami’s sound incorporates her inspirations of alternative R&B, with twists of dancehall influence & hip hop flowing through her music. I highly recommend you check out this brilliant track and stay on the lookout because Sami Sol’s first EP, "Serving You Art" is set to release summer 2019.

How did you get started writing music? What made you want to record it and take it more seriously?
I started writing music with an ex boyfriend who really helped me understand that I was an artist and I needed to take full control of that. I was 19. I can say that I've always been a writer though, in middle school I used to write some WICKED, raunchy poems & crazy short stories lol. I've always been the one to take a couple bullets for my writing style but I was a writer. My ex was an artist so he introduced me to the studio and from then on I've been on this journey to finding myself as an artist. I dont think I have a particular sound but I think I make some pretty good tunes lol. And I've come a long way since then, lyrically & vocally. It's not as easy as it looks though.
I always loved music & I was raised in a musically inclined household that pushed me to be in performing arts from a young age. This is something I've always wanted to do & was destined for. So it's always been serious for me.
We love your song “I Hope”! Can you tell us more about the meaning of the lyrics? What inspired this song?
Thank you so much for tuning in. It's one of my favorite records I've created so far. Well, the lyrics arent that deep on this record, I wrote it straight from the heart and exactly what I was feeling. I was in an abusive relationship & being able to find my self worth & leave that situation, I still wanted the best for the both of us. I still kept my heart open for another chance at love & I won't let the actions of someone else determine what I get to do with the rest of my life. "I hope we move along and get better with time!!!" And that's exactly what I'm doing. My past doesnt define me. Lol
How do you feed your passion for music everyday?
I listen to tons of music, I dissect life, my feelings, other people etc. But I'm always inspired by someone or something. Keeps me wanting more out of music & trying to expand my artistry through exploring new sounds.
What do you hope your listeners take away from your songs?
Whatever they want tbh. Art is subjective. I love the different perspectives people have when they talk about my music to me. But if I had to choose I would hope that they grasp from MY music that it's okay to be vulnerable. Vulnerability is the key to growth.
Do you have any upcoming shows, events or releases you want to talk about?
As of now I'm gearing up to release my first body of work called "Serving You Art". It's an EP, I think its versatility will have the people hooked & I cant wait being that it's my first project ever. I'm super excited!!! I've been working on it since last year. It's long overdue & "I Hope" is the single off of it so maybe it's a little taste of what to expect. I'll be dropping it VERY soon. This summer, so tune in!!!!
