Blk Orchid is a rising star in the Canadian music industry, with a unique sound that combines different genres into what she calls “neo dub.” The recording artiste and producer recently released the soulful reggae fused single ‘Maneater’, the first from her forthcoming album, ‘Lovers Groove’, set for release this summer.
“I am thrilled at the excitement and positive feedback received about my new single. ‘Maneater’ embodies a new sound I have been experimenting with that combines all my love for different genres of music,” said Blk Orchid. Her music is a fusion of reggae, soul, and dub, with a touch of modern R&B.
Blk Orchid has been consistently booked across Toronto since the beginning of 2023. Her music has attracted a growing following, and her previous release, ‘Single Girl Blues’ featuring Empress Divine, has accumulated more than 25,000 streams. The artiste has produced alongside Sly and Robbie and has worked with legendary artistes such as Red Rat.
What sets Blk Orchid apart from other artists is her unique sound and her dedication to educating her followers about the various aspects of music production. She is the founder of That’s a Dope Sample, an initiative she put together to educate followers about the various aspects of sampling. She believes that music production is a collaborative effort, and that artists can learn a lot from each other by sharing their knowledge and experiences.
The visuals for ‘Maneater’ were released the same day as the single and were directed and shot by Mettel Studios. The video perfectly captures the soulful, reggae-infused vibe of the song, with Blk Orchid’s powerful vocals taking center stage.
Blk Orchid’s music is an exciting blend of different genres, with her unique sound and powerful vocals setting her apart from other artists. With her forthcoming album, ‘Lovers Groove’, set for release this summer, Blk Orchid is definitely an artist to watch in 2023
