About Saidah Baba Talibah:

Toronto rock/soul songstress Saidah Baba Talibah’s – who’s been described as Living Color-meets-Erykah Badu – debut LP (S)Cream is more than just an album: it’s an experience. The suggestive, choose-your-own-adventure parentheses around the ‘S’ in the album’s title are indicative not only of the album’s lyrical content, but of Saidah as an artist and as a person.

Saidah’s debut EP The Phone Demos  –  a collection of songs inspired from using her cell phone to record demo tracks – received nothing but high praise from the likes of NOW, Exclaim!, and AOL Spinner, who gave the video from the EP’s single “Place Called Grace” its US debut as the AOL Spinner Video of the Day. After sharing The Phone Demos recordings with friends, not only did they love the music, they also remarked that the slightly grainy quality reminded them of the textured sound of early vinyl recordings. The recordings had an eerie similarity with Saidah’s personality: an old soul who creates new and vibrant work with new technology, but through her voice and spirit, she acknowledges the musical greats whose spirits helped shape who she is as a dynamic and unique performer.
