R&B singer Rashell releases single about domestic violence
October 10, 2012
Like a cross between the late R&B queen Teena Marie and the reigning princess of urban pop Beyonce, Rashell unites the generation gap between vintage soul and contemporary dance-pop. Her latest single, "Dry Yr Eyez," has substance as well, conveying a serious note beneath its percolating groove. "It's a song dedicated to bringing domestic violence awareness and a message of hope and healing," Rashell explained. "I love it for its strength and uplifting energy. It's the kind of song that lets you know that no matter how bad it is, you're not alone."
The maturity and wisdom on display on "Dry Yr Eyez" is rooted in Rashell's creative and personal growth. "I have learned through trial and error how tough the industry was. I also learned as a person that my mistakes could only make me stronger," Rashell revealed. "My world is exposed in my music. Every emotion is written in my music. I like to think this brings me closer to my fans, giving us a special connection." Unlike other young acts that play it safe with predictable formulas, Rashell has always evolved. "Over the years my style of music has developed," Rashell observed. "I have always loved R&B, hip-hop, and jazz. Over the years I have found a way to create the perfect blend of these genres. Having this balance makes me the creative artist I am. I like to believe my music is fine wine; it's the perfect blend, and every glass is better than the last."
For Rashell, becoming a serious artist requires hard work and patience. "I'm not an overnight sensation," Rashell said. "I have learned that it's not a easy to earn respect in the industry, especially as an independent artist. I can say that I am proud to be the artist I have become and if I had to do it over, I wouldn't change a thing."
