The R&B Singer and Songwriter Lizz Kalo is releasing an EP titled Your Own Understanding. Your Own Understanding is about how everything we go through or experience in relationships or individually is subject to perspective but still relatable. It was inspired by her own experiences and the experiences of the people around her. The songs explore different ways to deal with heartache, using different scenarios from song to song.
Incorporating influences from South Africa’s new wave sound to R&B and Afro Pop, the EP is unique in its own way. “My music is about the world through my eyes, my interpretation of different ideas and experiences e.g love, pain, dreams and hope” said Lizz Kalo. Set to release on 06 November 2020 on all digital platforms.
In the project, you get to hear sounds from guitarist T10, poet Anga Mamfanya, and beat maker Phreaky, as well as Pianist/beat maker Vince La muzika, Rapper Genoside and the Executive Producer who helped bring it all together Auth3ntiC.
