Sidibe is a five octave vocalist, songwriter and guitarist with roots in Louisiana and Senegal. The singular tones and vibrations of her voice have led to descriptions that include other-worldly and ethereal.
She was signed at the age of 18, but in a bold move, she left after realizing she needed to define her vision for herself as an artist before accepting the one the label had created for her. After leaving her label, she contributed to albums for Nas and Common. She traveled to Senegal to connect with family and experienced a rebirth.
When she returned home from Africa, she began writing and formed pivotal collaborative relationships with Finnish producer Nico Stadi (Justin Beiber) and the legendary Warryn Campbell (Musiq Soulchild, Kanye West, Angie Stone). All this led to three self-released EPs, an exclusive Japan album and the Prince connection.
Released in May 2016, Sidibe's EP You Got the Luck garnered the attention of Prince who selected her song “I’m Only Dreaming” for his personally curated Purple Pick of the week playlist. As it turns out, this was Prince’s last cosign before his departure.
Currently, Sidibe is working on her newest project and had this to say about the process, “Whether they are good or bad, all my life experiences offer inspiration and that is important since my songs are so autobiographical. I can’t wait to share the next chapter with you.”
