Toronto-based vocalist/producer Sylo Nozra has released his long-awaited album Mud Mask. The album premiered exclusively with i-D who stated “Sylocertainly delivers R&B’s hallmark heart-on-sleeve romance and raunch, but his slightly mumbled delivery shrouds it in a layer of mystique.” Sylo continues to express his creative genius with his newest album as it is co-produced by Sylohimself alongside frequent collaborator Goldchain, and Juno Award-winning producer Lantz.
Mud Mask provides eight vibrant singles with smooth tempo soundscapes complimented with tropical rhythms. His syncopated instrumentation and sultry vocals will captivate listeners from beginning to end. Sylo’s impassioned melodies flow harmoniously within each of the tracks, while his lyrics explore various phases of relationships, attraction, and the lessons learned during these processes.
In 2017, he released the Fervor EP. The 7-track project premiered exclusively through the respected music publication Ones To Watch. They wrote, “the seven-song collection explores romantically-charged lyrical themes with an effortlessly smooth instrumental backdrop.” Sylo’s talent has been compared to fellow Canadian stars such as Daniel Caesar, Allan Rayman, and Charlotte Day Wilson.
The Fader premiered “Right Here” in April, describing his sound as “....soaring R&B, crisp and composed yet as universally soothing as a warm washcloth to the forehead” while Noisey declared his record ‘Simple’ with Goldchain a “Bedroom R&B” hit.
Sylo has made headlines with his avant-garde R&B style since breaking into the scene in 2015. His fan base increased throughout North America since debuting his critically acclaimed EP This_Era which included the breakout single, “Losing Myself” that accumulated 5.4 million streams after being placed on Spotify’s top streaming playlist.
This album includes his recent release Je T’Adore” which was immediately added to Spotify’s Mellow Bars and New Music Friday U.S. and Canadaalongside artists such as Meek Mill, Justin Timberlake, Ella Mai and Sia. It also placed on the US Viral 50 charts on Spotify at #42.
