Leading the charge in 2020 with singles “Let Me In” and recent hit “Don’t Let Go”, Afro-Irish songstress Tolü Makay officially releases her much anticipated debut EP Being.
Presenting her deepest thoughts succinctly in 7 tracks, Being shares the important life lessons that Tolü has learnt; the importance of self-love, self-assurance and self-confidence – to the sounds of Soul, R&B and Pop.
Already impressing with previous singles “Don’t Let Go” and “You Are Enough“, the “Being” experience as a whole sees Purposeful song writing meets authentically soulful vocals and confident delivery that puts Tolü Makay shoulder to shoulder with her contemporaries.
“’Being’ means ‘essence’, one’s entity. Tolü shares on her sentiments around the EP. I chose it as the title of the project because it captures my journey to self-discovery. This journey to knowing who you are was vital in order to grow and attain a greater sense of self. My love for psychology and advocacy for mental health is what truly influences why I question the mind, myself and ways to live. This translates into how I write about my experiences.”
Emerging with her 2018 single “Goodbye” – now with over 800k streams on Spotify alone. Tolü is a seasoned vocalist who continues to grow in stature with every release, with “Don’t Let Go” reaching #1 on Ireland’s RTE Radio 1’s airplay charts and “You Are Enough” spotlighted by BBC’s Across The Line as “The Best Song In The World”.
“My hope with this project is that it helps anyone who is lacking self-love or going through a transition to better themselves and need the encouragement from within. Because it’s a long but rewarding journey.”
