“My last album ‘Treble & Reverb’ had a little bit more sparkle. This new album is all me, like a slow burning incense stick, it burns slow but leaves behind a scent that’s 100% authentic” – Aaradhna
Brown Girl is the long-awaited new album from the award winning #1 Soul voice of the South Pacific, AARADHNA. Produced entirely by Jeff Dynamite of Brooklyn-based Truth & Soul Records (Aloe Blacc, Adele, Lady, Lee Fields & The Expressions), the album is set for release on July 22nd and will be Aaradhna’s boldest statement to date.
Recorded live in Brooklyn and Los Angeles with the guidance of Jeff Dynamite, her 4th studio album is a literal “who’s who?” of the greatest retro soul instrumentalists and session players on the scene today, creating a dark, therapeutic pace that delves into intertwining topics of race relations, label politics, love, heart break, judgment and ignorance. Above all else Aaradhna’s voice is still her strongest instrument.
Brown Girl is about people trying to put you in a box, when there’s more to you than meets the eye. Covering a broad musical landscape including mixed genres of R&B/Soul/Country/Blues & Pop, Aaradhna delivers a quiet intensity that grows with every story she tells through her music. Mixed by Dan Parry (Grammy Winner for Adele’s 21) and mastered by Tom Coyne (D’Angelo – Voodoo / Adele / Amy Winehouse), Aaradhna has created an album that demands acknowledgment, that her music will not stand still.
