Phé is a Vancouver born, Los Angeles-based Contemporary R&B singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released her wonderful debut EP, entitled, “Crisis”.
Phé – “Incredible”
The lead single, “Incredible”, highlights Phé’s signature feel-good sound. The song contains a relatable storyline, smokey soul vocals, and lush instrumentation flavored with neo-soul elements.
Also, it tells the tale of a woman who falls in love for the very first time, despite believing that love was a fickle and fleeting thing.
‘About Us’ is another standout song on the EP. It speaks to that moment when you can look back at a toxic relationship and see it for what it really was.
“It is my anthem of self-worth, self-realization and was my way of giving myself what I truly deserved, which was the freedom to move on and own the power of loving myself.” – Phé
‘About Us’ contains a relatable storyline, sweet soul vocals, and sassy instrumentation flavored with a ‘90s R&B vibe.
Also, the song is a declaration of self-empowerment and casting away relationships that no longer serve us in an act of self-love.
“‘Crisis’ is an honest and open exploration of myself and sound at a time where I had to decide if I wanted to be a victim of heartbreak or use that discomfort as inspiration for growth.” – Phé
Phé’s “Crisis” EP explores the artist’s love life, as it details her rich experiences with falling in and out of love.
Also, it tells tales of love, heartbreak, female sexuality and sexual exploration, healing, mental health, and self-empowerment.
But its focus is primarily centered on Phé’s life and how she handles the different aspects of love.
Phé – “Crisis” EP
“It’s really important for young people to be able to see themselves reflected back in the media and popular culture. It makes them feel understood and shows them that they are part of something greater than themselves. I think everyone deserves to be seen and heard.” – Phé
Phé was born and raised in East Vancouver, where she fell in love with the arts at an early age. After graduating from high school, she pursued a career and post-secondary education in music. She attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied vocal performance, music business, and songwriting. While in college, she sang as a background vocalist on projects including the Marianas Trench’s song, “Shut Up and Kiss Me”, and Aloe Blacc‘s hit single, entitled, “The Man”.
Phé’s musical influences include Erykah Badu, Sade, and Lauryn Hill. She hopes her music will allow others to feel connected. Also, she wants it to give them a mirror through which they can see and understand themselves and their experiences.
