Artist Of The Day: Sudan Archives

posted by Shane German on 11/14/2019

As Sudan Archives, violinist, singer, songwriter, and producer Brittney Parks combines left-field strains of R&B, hip-hop, folk, and electronic music with the fiddling style of West Africa.

The self-taught musician started playing violin as a youngster in her native Cincinnati, Ohio.

After Parks moved to Los Angeles to study music technology in college, she started producing beats on a tablet computer with the addition of her vocals and strings, the latter increasingly inspired by Sudanese music.

After 2 EP's were released on Stones Throw last year, her first full length debut ATHENA arrived in 2019 and was added to the WYCE Music Library.
