(Denver, CO – Friday, August 16) – Earlier today, soul singer, philanthropist, and actress Such, released her third studio album, Wide Nose, Full Lips. A special ode to her people, Such embodies the true essence of a Black woman on this project. We hear that and more on the album, especially with her lead single “Before Dark,”a coming of age peace (pun intended) in which Such truly embraces her sexuality and self-love. The hit single, which premiered on BET Her, charted top 40 on the Urban AC Charts.
“I’ve been on this road to discovering who I am as a Black woman and becoming someone who is a little more comfortable in her skin. This album is about embracing our beauty as black people, being fully confident in our sensuality as Black women, and no longer struggling to find comfort in our own skin.” – Such
All in all, Wide Nose, Full Lipsis an “unapologetic love letter to blackness.” We especially see this on “Melanin,” another single off the project that really celebrates blackness in all of its glory featuring popular spoken word artist Kerrie Joy. Other amazing musicians on the album include Monique Brooks-Robertswho arranged and recorded strings.
On August 24thand 25th, Such will celebrate the release of her project at The Soiled Dove where Jazz singer Tony Exum Jr.(8/24) andKerrie Joy(8/25) will open for her. The second date was added due to a sold-out show on the 24th! Tickets can be purchased herevia ticketfly.com. To continue the momentum of Wide Nose, Full Lips, which is now available on all digital streaming platforms, Such will be making her way up north to perform at the City Winery DC on September 24thand then heading to the UK.
