AZSH takes you into airplane mode on her seductive new single and lyric video Mood — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Naming Alicia Keys, Sade, Stevie Nicks and Queen as her biggest inspirations, the American pop singer-songwriter draws from her combined influences, totally owning her own brand of feel-good, glittering alt-pop. Recorded with multi-Latin Grammy-nominated producer Luis “The Dro1dz” Salazar, the track’s slick production and infectious chorus will have listeners singing along from the very first listen.
AZSH says, “Having had the opportunity during the pandemic to disconnect and shift gears definitely inspired this song. When writing the hook, I imagined the back and forth process we often have in the studio. It’s like a collaboration that accelerates and gets better as it goes. I guess that’s how a good relationship goes too, and since I’ve found myself in my first happy/healthy relationship, I was happy to incorporate those feelings into this song.”
Originally from Kentuckiana (a mesh of Indiana and Kentucky), AZSH grew up surrounded by music. Both her parents are musicians, and from a very young age she would sing in choirs and at church. AZSH’s first writing/recording session was in 2007 when she filled in for a big-name artist who didn’t show up to a session.
“I volunteered myself for the job and probably was reluctantly accepted as a plan B, but after I wrote and recorded a full song with harmonies in less than an hour, everyone in the studio was blown away and couldn’t believe it was my first time doing such a thing.” From that day, AZSH has been hooked on making music.
Now calling Miami home for the last eight years, AZSH creates music that represents and incorporates Miami vibes and its incredible International melting pot of cultures. “The energy is upbeat and sunny! I want my music to feel the same!” she says. Mood has been likened to acts such as Miami Sound Machine and Jennifer Lopez, and has received local and international radio play on pop and adult contemporary stations, and has been added to international playlists.
Mood is the first of a string of singles to be released this year, with a full EP also set for release in 2022. Watch the lyric video above, listen to the track on your preferred DSP HERE, and follow AZSH on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and Twitch.
