Ady Suleiman Says 'Running Away' Is Not The Answer
When we first heard U.K. singer-songwriter Ady Suleiman several years ago, it was immediately obvious that it would not be long before his star was in the ascendant. Investing his ear-catching blend of pop, r&b, reggae and soul with an emotionally literate self-awareness and a thoughtfully observant social conscience, Suleiman's maturely insightful songwriting was powerfully brought to life through the distinctive phrasing and effortlessly soulful tone of his arresting vocal. Such a talent was quick to be recognized, with Suleiman going on to receive endorsements from the likes of Gilles Peterson and BBC Radio, along with gracing the stages of major festivals the likes of Glastonbury and Wireless.
Having released his 'This Is My EP' and 'What's The Score?' EP's last year, here - ahead of his touring with Leon Bridges in Europe next month - Suleiman returns with Jamaican producer Winta James' remix of his new track 'Running Away': over the sultry, reggae-hued groove and emergent horn swells, the smooth soul of Suleiman's standout voice offers empathetic words of encouragement towards finding the courage to stand fast in the face of that which torments and troubles.
