Chin Injeti’s heart, soul and spirit take flight on his personal new single Sparrow — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

An ode to letting go and taking life as it comes, the headnodding cut finds the Grammy and Juno-winning Vancouver artist handling all instruments, with the exception of the song’s extra synth parts. “Sparrow is my little ode to freedom. It was the perfect ‘escape’ when I was held prisoner in my basement, as I wrote it in my home studio while I was in quarantine.”

And there’s more where that came from: The confines of self-isolation opened a wellspring of inspiration that produced a steady stream of new songwriting and production projects — including the recent Tinnitist-featured singles Falling (featuring Esthero and Delhi 2 Dublin’s Tarun Nayer), For The Love Of Life (with Teon Gibbs) and Golden (co-starring Thieves Like Us).

Injeti previously fronted the award-winning ’90s band Bass is Base and enjoyed years of producing, creating, collaborating, touring, and performing with the likes of DJ Khalil, The Fugees, The Roots, Jamiroquai, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Esthero, Bedouin Soundclash and more. He has also created and taught curriculum for Vancouver’s NIMBUS, discussed the healing properties of music at TEDx, and been recognized for his life’s work with a star on Vancouver’s prestigious Walk of Fame.
