South African-born singer-songwriter Thabilé has officially released her genre-bending album, Red My Lips. The German-based musician’s stunning vocals are accompanied by musical arrangements from the highly-talented Steve Bimamisa.
WHO IS THABILÉ?
Thabilé is a Johannesburg-born artist who is currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. Her love for music started at eight years old when she sang in the school choir. The 34-year-old says her South African roots are “extremely important to her”.
“I live in Germany today, but I’m happy to have grown up in South Africa,” says the 34-year-old singer
“My songs not only represent myself but the entire African continent. Everyone with African roots who listens to my songs should recognise themselves in them.”
‘READ MY LIPS’
Thabilé’s new album Read My Lips is a multi-genre 12-track album that allows genres like soul, pop, jazz and R&B to flow into one another. Her sound can be described as elegant, soulful and radiant.
The talented songstress says the album is centered around something quite personal.
“Missing a vital member of a family can have long-lasting mental effects. This album is about healing those scars caused by loss and abandonment, And just as the healing commences, it brings with it the much-needed self-love and confidence to you becoming the person of our dreams,” expresses Thabilé.
