After a lauded opening performance for Tinashe at Red Bull’s 30 Days In LA last year, Bay Area via Colorado songstress Povi has teamed up with Grammy-nominated producers Christian Rich for her soulful single “Park Hill” featuring ILoveMakonnen, and progressive dance rhythm “4AM” out this Friday, March 11th on Red Bull Sound Select.
Povi’s sultry vocals and songwriting pay homage to the great soul singers of yesterday while evolving the sound with modern R&B, hip-hop and pop flare. As a self-taught producer, singer and performer, Povi strives to blend inspiration from rap, electronic, future funk and classic soul paired with forward-thinking production that defies a single classification. She discovered music on her own as an outlet that taught her responsibility, motivation and passion for self-expression. From picking up the harp at an early age and teaching herself to sing, produce and record, Povi is a self-driven musician and a hallmark example of an independent young artist.
