Saidah Baba Talibah

You have likely already heard Saidah Baba Talibah's amazing voice, but just didn't realize it. This lady's been everywhere .
The track was recorded using Saidah's phone during a writing session with her guitarist Donna Grantis when they had no other recording device available and wanted to lay tracks down. Thus the phone demos were born. The demos were released as a prelude to her full length album
