We first heard from ArtistNation in December upon the release of her debut single “Honor”, a song that celebrated black pride and strong women throughout history. That track introduced The Static Dive readers to Mahoghany, an award winning playwright, poet, actress, director and songwriter. Her new music project is an extension of her work as a creator of socially conscious words, sounds, images, and ideas.
Since her debut, the multimedia artist has released a total of four singles in as many months. The prolific producer blends elements of r&b, pop, hip-hop and jazz into a soulful and inspirational sound. A DMV native, she works with artists throughout the DC area and beyond to capture her vision.
“This Day” is a recent single from ArtistNation, available worldwide via all major streaming services. Cinematic strings and synths provide an ethereal backdrop for this soulful r&b love ballad. On the mic, a male vocalist honors a love that ‘started as a flame and is now a fire’. Soon the beat drops on a downtempo 90’s r&b groove.
Check out “This Day” below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Beat playlist, or listen on your favorite streaming service. Follow the links below to connect with ArtistNation. Get on her socials and website and dig into a rich and diverse portfolio of creative work.
