Toronto-based singer/songwriter Kae Sun has released a new video for his latest single “Ship and The Globe,” which is now available via URBNET. You may remember him from our December 2011 cover story, which you can read here.
Kae’s latest work explores themes of spiritual growth, fearless exploration, and vulnerability. As the artist explains, “The way I came to music was as a part of a bigger search. Exploration and fearless expression was a part of a spiritual journey for me and continues to be. It was never initially about a career or a certain style or anything like that. It was about easing anxiety and being closer to God. In that sense I’m always creating to satisfy that part of me. The songs on this record are deeply personal for that very reason.”
This new effort by the singer/songwriter builds on the success of his previous releases. For his 2011 EP Outside the Barcode, Kae Sun was inspired by the return to his native homeland Ghana. After nine years of living in Canada, he found a renewed drive for creating the raw and non-commoditized artistic experiences that shaped his passion for music. 2009’s Lion on a Leash, the well-received LP that landed on the iTunes 2009 Rewind List and earned esteemed reviews from Exclaim, The Montreal Gazette, OkayPlayer.com, as well as gaining recognition on many critic’s lists for top indie release of the year.
The success of Kae’s work has led him to play venues and festivals across Canada, UK, Dubai and Ghana. Kae Sun is also in the works of putting out his next full-length album AFRIYIE produced by Kae Sun and Science!, set for release in early 2013.
