Singer, songwriter and visual artist Sedric Perry treats us all to a slice of soulful bliss on his new single, ‘CTB’.
Dedicated to the people in Perry’s life whom he’s loved, the song offers listeners a warm and comforting sound, and continues to showcase this emerging talent’s musical artistry.
“I wanted something that felt like home. After being in Berlin and Senegal and feeling like my life was spinning out of control at some points, all of a sudden I was back in New York. And this song was speaking to me. I was grateful and calm again. This song just felt like a big hug from everyone I ever loved, whether they’re here or not. I wanted to show this side of myself to people who’ve been listening for a while. To me this song feels like home.
I want people to really feel the love I poured into it. I always try to put self love and acceptance into my music, but I wanted to really express that it’s also okay to let people in and be vulnerable too. Love is a beautiful thing that comes in many shapes. Even when it’s tough or scary, we should lean into it. Everything moves so fast now and our attention spans are so short – we think we should always be somewhere other than where we are. ‘Could this Be’ is your reminder to slow down and enjoy what’s in front of you right now.”
With more than four million career streams to date, Perry is a star on the rise who has seen his work featured by the likes of Billboard, Complex and Gay Times Magazine.
