There’s no mistaking the power of minimalism in one of Chandanie’s newest offerings. In “You Touch My Heart”, the No9to5 Music songstress does a wonderful job of calling upon themes of self-love through liquid, languid vocals that stretch into controlled bellows of subtle riffs, hugged in choirs of harmony.

Each verse is swollen with emotion as vulnerable as the guitar that strums lightly in the backdrop. The thoughtful delivery in this effort feels like a conversation that blends styles of artists like Erykah Badu, Frank Ocean, Moses Sumney, and many, many more.

This is the music New Yorkers want to listen to at night when riding the subway home alone on the J train, wherever they are going within the transit bowels of that wild city where time feels to stop and wait for hungry hearts and eager ears. This music invites us to  pour ourselves into reflection, feeling, and all those emotions we need to bury when grinding through the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Chandanie is no newbie when it comes to performing and producing. Her prowess has found itself on stages that notoriously welcome jazz and original music across NYC such as National Sawdust, The Bowery Electric, The Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, and SOBs. A mix of jazz, soul, and R&B shines through the delicate framework of her compositions.
