Described by CLASH magazine as “a songwriter at the forefront of a creative movement within contemporary R&B, re-shaping classic tropes into something startlingly fresh” the young Ivory Coast born, Reykjavik based artist by way of New York is forging a new lane with a unique perspective. “I want people to listen to something that I create and feel they can create something too, no matter what world they’re in,” snny explains. “Especially kids that are immigrants and feel marginalized. For me, to try to empower kids in any sense is important.” A musically omnivorous spirit, Snny’s influences range from the full-throated new wave of Future Islands and Kid Cudi to Sam Cooke, Jimi Hendrix, and Erykah Badu—but above else, the work of Bob Dylan stands as a substantial wealth of inspiration. “I admire what he does as a songwriter,” he explains. “His music sounds like folk songs from the Ivory Coast, when he rambles and tells stories—that’s why I latched onto him so early.” Originally signing to Glassnote for his debut single in 2017, snny has forged his own path, exploring and establishing his identity in the world. Last year saw the launch of his global label Radio Silence, and following the release of his previous single ‘Postmodern Black’ has played host to a collection of harmonious creatives met along the way.
