Singer Briar Blakley makes an entrance.


Season 8 alum of The Voice, Briar Blakley has officially issued her debut effort with Retro Future Volume 1 EP. The project's title more so doubles as an effective description of Blakely's sound, as she delves within retro contemporary influences, mixing old with new, blending genres, and creating a wonderfully left-of-center project that leaves her among the voices infusing new and refreshing elements to the realm of R&B and Soul.

"Retro Future, Vol. 1 is a nostalgic EP with vibrations of psychedelic, disco, electric soul, and ‘70s and ‘80s era classics,” says Briar. “In creating this project, I was inspired by artists like Tame Impala, HAIM, Toro Y Moi and Kanye West because of how they lean into their niche. Because creating music is a sacred process for me, it was important for me to be boldly artistic and lean into my own sound instead of following trends.”

Listen to Retro Future now.
