It’s a massive Friday for a Jessie Reyez fan like me. Not only has she just released her debut EP, Kiddo, but the Toronto based R&B star in the making has announced a tour to go with the release, too. On June 29th, she makes her way over to San Francisco to make her debut at Popscene. It might be my most highly anticipated show this summer. I made it a point to see Jessie Reyez at her only SXSW performance last month and she blew the audience away with her raw ferocity and consuming command of the stage. That voice, her charisma, that persona, and the intensity of her music is just phenomenal. She’s a firecracker… With a mighty spark she lights up and explodes, and we’re the lucky ones to witness it happen. 

Aside from songs we’ve shared previously like twisted enthralling Shutter Island and bittersweet melting Figures, new EP Kiddo also features this spicy piquant, edgy bristling hip hop meets electronica anthem Blue Ribbon, which features Los Angeles producer Tim Suby. The two blossoming talents previously united on Suby’s “k goodnight”, and they make a riveting combo once again on moody seething, spunky jostling Blue Ribbon. Stream debut EP Kiddo in full on Soundcloud and purchase on iTunes, here. Go see Jessie Reyez in the more intimate venues while you still can.
