Singer-songwriter Brik.Liam is starting 2017 off in the key of love. For Valentine’s Day, the multi-talented vocalist gave his previously released “beau…” a black, velvet cape and dedicated the reworked version to, “people and more specifically women of color,” he told Saint Heron via email. “Just a reminder to people of color that they’re beautiful.”
Flexing his truly one-of-a-kind vocal texture and impressive range, the Atlanta-based artist paints with tuneful admiration to create an awe-inspiring work of art. In the newly revamped “beau…,” Brik.Liam enlisted poet Violet Mari for the track’s expressive prologue. Emotion stirring lyrics swirl into Brik’s rich, warm tone causing a beautifully mellifluous tornado of loving encouragement and tender harmonies.
“beau…” serves as precursor to .Liam’s forthcoming EP slated for arrival this spring. Until then, we’ll hold tightly to yesterday’s love high by keeping this sensory ballad in rotation. You can listen to the track below.
