Los Angeles based artist SAUNDIA just released her passionate and expansive new single "Not The Same." Known for her rich, soulful vocals and eclectic blend of sounds, SAUNDIA draws influence from her diverse musical background in R&B, jazz, choir and theatre. After suffering a serious vocal injury that left her unable to sing for a year, this budding artist makes a true comeback, shining brighter than ever on her new track.
In "Not the Same," SAUNDIA takes us on a sonic journey through the stages of grief. The song pairs strong, full-bodied vocals with a goddess resemblant overlay of harmonies that create an air of divine feminine energy. Starting off reflective, she reaches peak anger at the climax of the track, and returns to a state of humble acceptance by the end of her story. Lyrics such as, "You been playing with fire since we met / You been straddling the line to see how far you could get / I been along for the ride with my eyes closed / But now they're opened up wide, and you can go on alone," is SAUNDIA's reclamation of power, choosing her own health and happiness in the end.
After SAUNDIA's vocal injury in 2016, the artist used her disheartening experience to deepen her appreciation for her artform and vocal talent. During this time, she explored prevailing themes of loss, freedom, and finally rebirth when she was able to return to her source of strength. Her history singing in choirs and jazz bands created the magnetizing powerhouse vocals that define her sublime, lyrical style today. Take a listen to "Not The Same" for a captivating and redefined breakup story (gone right).
