First Listen: Sy Smith and DominiqueXavier take on a classic

(December 29, 2020) SoulTrackers know that we are HUGE fans of the eclectic dance, soul and jazz stylings of the hardest working woman in indie soul, Sy Smith. Her most recent album, A Rose Grows In Concrete, was an instant classic, and she has been keeping up with her fans during the pandemic with various new performances and fun musical diversions.

Now, as the odd year that is 2020 ends, Sy returns with a new single, featuring former Prince keyboardist DominiqueXavier, that updates a Nina Simone classic gives the kind of message we need to hear.

Sy says of "Feeling Good," “If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s taught us to take pause, to slow down and be grateful for the life, love, health and happiness that’s directly in our view.”

We have loved seeing Sy’s continued growth as an artist, and “Feeling Good” is yet another step for a performer for whom attention should always be paid.
