Sahie singing his way to stardom
Reggae recording artiste Sahie (pronounced Sah-E) is enthused about his current musical journey as he seeks to become a household name in the modern era of the dynamic genre.
With a display of soothing melodies and punchlines, the artiste, who hails from St Andrew, told THE STAR that with the high expectations from people known to him, he is duty-bound to deliver.
"I have a fresh new sound, something that people can relate to with a positive effect. Everywhere I go people, gravitate to my music and say mi should a buss already, but me just a get the exposure through good music," Sahie said.
Sahie, born Kiplin Reid, has been professionally recording for six years and says there is no limit to his music.
He told THE STAR, "I am a reggae/dancehall artiste, but I am more focused on the cultural side. That is where I started and I don't want people to think I don't stand for something, but mi nah limit myself. I am versatile."
His influences speak to that assertion, as he draws inspiration from entertainers such as Sizzla, Mavado, Beres Hammond, Bob Marley, Jr Gong, Vybz Kartel and Gregory Isaacs.
He told THE STAR that he is currently promoting a new single, Soft and Tender, for PG Records on the exchange Rate rhythm. It is set for official release next month.
Sahie is also known for singles such as Born and Grow, Na Na Na for Supa Hype, Nah Pree Dem and Time Out.
He also had high praises for Pay Day Music and Frenz For Real Production, who have been instrumental in his career.
Sahie said, "They are also people I have worked with. I am the type of songwriter that draws influence from what I see around me. I also write from what mi go through, and include some aspects of social commentary."
