Artist Spotlight: Lalah Hathaway

Lalah Hathaway’s ‘Self Portrait’ album has been on constant rotation over the last few weeks here at Soul Surge, having been reminded of her greatness via her recent feature on Shaé Universe’s project ‘Love’s Letter’.

The album is a self-reflective and open journal, exploring heartbreak, letting go, rebirth, independence and life lessons.

Coated in velvet vocals and driven by soulful instrumentation, ‘Self Portrait’ feels like a hug from a big sister, telling you it’ll be alright in the end.

Songs such as ‘On your own’ and ‘What goes around’ serve as reminders of our own power and encourage us to live in purpose.

Take your time with ‘Self Portrait’ and explore the sounds of Lalah Hathaway if you haven’t already! If you have, it’s a perfect time to revisit as spring is upon us!
