Sycorah keeping it authentic

AT a time when the contemporary Jamaican artiste’s catalogue is dominated by cover songs, singer Sycorah is determined to do things her way.

“Authenticity is important. I don’t want to be remembered as the girl who covered ‘that song’,” she said.

True to form, she wrote

Skin, her latest song which is produced by Delroy ‘Fatta’ Pottinger. The racy track is scheduled for release next week.

Sycorah is also pushing

Keep It On The Low (produced by Ernie Wilks) which was released in 2009. Inspired by personal challenges, she is reviving the song because “it didn’t get the justice it should”.

The 31-year-old artiste (born Simone Daley) grew up in Waterhouse, the Kingston community widely hailed as modern dancehall’s birthplace.

After an apprenticeship at top producer Bobby Digital’s studio, Sycorah’s first song,

Satisfy You, was produced by Michael ‘Mighty Mike’ Jones of IRIE FM on his Tantric ‘rhythm’. It was released in 2009.

This was followed by

Keep It On The Low, which reflects on a period when she was unemployed.

Skin is one of the songs that will appear on Sycorah’s debut EP, expected to be released before year-end.
