NYC Based Singer v Empress Set to Release Debut EP "Can't Tame a Savage"
New York City, June 23, 2016 (Newswire.com) - V Empress, New York City based Pop and R&B singer, kicks off the summer with a bang…or rather “bang! bang!” an electrifying line she repeats throughout her newly released song and music video; Pistol Down. The track and video is the first of four; Guilty, Lies and Bentley Rides, and Never Gets Old (NGO,) set to be released on July 1st, in her highly anticipated debut EP; Can’t Tame a Savage.
Inspired by Kid Ink and Dj Mustard’s production of Summer in the Winter, V Empress set out to achieve her own [female] fusion of hot club oriented hip hop beats paired with very catchy, sexy and complex lyrics. Her track Guilty describes her desire to partake in a three-some, and ultimately encourages listeners to kick off their summer by unleashing all off their deep inner desires. V Empress states “I want to be as raw, honest, and transparent as possible when writing my lyrics and creating my art,” and aims to “promote female empowerment and expression.” V Empress’ bold, honest lyrics can also be identified in her songs; Lies & Bentley Rides and Never Gets Old (NGO). Her lyrics disclose intimate details and feelings about her turbulent long-term relationship with the popular Youtube personality Coby Persin. It is, however, her track Pistol Down, that really transforms her EP, Can’t Tame a Savage, into a genuinely impressive summer banger. Her electrifying vocal overlays, and exciting lyrics are extremely catchy, dope to party to, and will surely leave listeners singing the song back all day.
V Empress solidified her desired sound while working with NJ based music producer, engineer and mixer, Jake Antelis. Antelis has worked with local and international artists as well Youtube stars including; Esmee Denters, The New Velvet, Alyssa Bernal, and has had songs placed in shows on MTV, MLB network, American Idol and The Voice.
“V Empress not only writes and creates great songs and lyrics and catchy melodic content but is one of the most open artists in regards to collaborating and being open to the opinion of others for the sake of making each song and production as best as they can possibly be. It's such a pleasure to be part of that journey.” -Jake Antelis, Music Producer
