In The Spotlight

Elyse Jones – “Sutcha”

Raised in Minneapolis and based in New Orleans, this impassioned singer and songwriter got to taste the various flavors of funk from the freezing tight pocket of the north to the laid-back swampyness of the south. Using her music to carry messages of social justice, her style ranges from upbeat jams to meditative chants in order to celebrate peoplehood through song and dance.

Debuting with an easy-going, funkalicious vibe, her first single marries socially charged lyrics with velvety funk. A suave bass line and a mellow rhythm lay down a silky smooth groove for her soul-dripping, slightly jazzy vocals to slide over with ease. And with the addition of some sparkling horns and a touch of organ, this honey-dipped tune blends vintage tones with a refreshing modern edge.
