Blessed with a unique vocal tone that has the ability to cut through the cold and embed itself in the listener’s soul, Sarsha Simone is an exciting artist who is bringing a fresh and yet timeless take on music. The striking chantueuse’s most recent collaboration with French producer’s 20syl & Moar on “Gonna Do Me (20syl Remix)” has had close to 300,000 plays on SoundCloud since it’s release a few months ago. Sarsha has also been featured on Acclaim Magazine, Earmilk, BLACK Magazine, Grazia Italy, Hypetrak and more thanks to her soulful vocals and striking looks. Her solo single “Let’s Dance”, (prod. Marley Cassette) debuted on The Edge 96.1 last month, before being selected by Apple Music for an exclusive position on their The A-List: R&B playlist highlighting the hottest R&B of the moment. The most exciting part of all this is that it is just the beginning for Sarsha Simone as she gets ready to deliver her Vaughan meets West style and sound to the world.

#GenerationNuSoul is proud to present The Rebirth Of Fresh, an exploration through iconic music. The Rebirth Of Fresh is a new fortnightly event held at Ginger’s in Darlinghurst that sees Sydney’s freshest musicians and vocalists tap into their creative expression and push sonic boundaries as they interpret an iconic producer’s body of work. With a new producer to deconstruct each month, a different guest vocalist each week and alternating between two house bands, The Rebirth Of Fresh will take the audience on a unique trip each fortnight.

In October we launched The Rebirth Of Fresh with flare by paying tribute to and reinterpreting Stevie Wonder’s ‘Songs In the Key Of Life’ double album with featured vocalists Wallace Gollan and Jeremy Gregory. November will see Tully Ryan (drums), Joel Jenkins (keys) and Eric Fortaleza (bass) putting their nu soul and jazz spin on the work of prolific R&B and pop producer Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds.

Babyface is a 10-time Grammy winner with 11 solo albums of his own. Throughout the 90s it was close to impossible to have not heard a Babyface composition, with his impeccably crafted explorations of love, romance and relationships making an imprint on the evolution of contemporary pop music throughout the world. To put it in perspective, Babyface has been behind over 125 Top-10 R&B and Pop hits, 42 #1’s R&B hits, and 51 Top-10 Pop hits (including 16 #1’s), and worked with the who’s who of the music world including Whitney Houston, Boyz II Men, Bobby Brown, Madonna, Mariah Carey, TLC and Toni Braxton.

After a phenomenal show on November 7th with Ron E Jones, the Rebirtjh Of Fresh is back on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 21ST with guest vocalist Glenn Lumanta!

The Rebirth Of Fresh: Reinterpreting the work of Babyface will be a night paying tribute to an icon of 90s R&B and pop by adding a heavy dose of contemporary to the mix. Think Babyface meets Robert Glasper, as the band take the audience on a aural exploration that will leave the audience yearning for more. With an entry price that’s little more than that of a cup of coffee, Sydney’s music lovers will be ensured a night of genre-defying music that delivers more of a buzz than their morning caffeine hit.
