Welcome to the genre of neo-soul R&B.
Sabriel is a Las Vegas-based singer, songwriter, and producer, whose goal is to explore vulnerability through her music. Her sound is soft and soulful coupled with kaleidoscope imagery. She falls into the realm of neo-soul R&B amongst the ranks of Snoh Alegra, Giveon, and Arlo Parks.
Her latest single “The Flame” is the lead off her upcoming EP. As a tribute to her child self (shown as the single artwork), Sabriel finds comfort in the image and her memories, knowing she is fulfilling what she has dreamt of doing from a very young age.
“She has been my #1 inspiration for the past year.” Sabriel explains, “This song in particular doubles as affirmations and reminders to myself for when I’m not feeling confident. Songs are so permanent, so I’m trying to squeeze in as much magic into them as I can.”
“The Flame” takes a heavy lean onto the percussion, vocal melodies, and harmonies. The result is a fiery, powerful track that emits an uplifting, feel-good soundscape. Minimal in its range of production, yet complex in its layers, Sabriel’s soulful, rich vocals give a timeless sense to the melodies, as she finds inspiration in the music she admired as a child. “The Flame” is both playful and steady in its maturity and wisdom.
