Take a dip in the reverbs.
Courtnie is an intriguing character with a fresh take on the stylings of R&B. She has accumulated support from publications such as Saint Heron, Pigeons and Planes, The Fader, NPR and Billboard, and she continues to build a buzz as she constructs her artistry. In this new single “Dip”, she demonstrates the old school nature that she is well-aware of, taking it back to the roots of the genre. However, in the same way, she possesses a cutting-edge composition that makes the track her own, and releases the boldness that makes Courtnie her own in the lane.
With a fire and seduction like that of SZA and the forceful croons of Ella Mai, this chick makes the cut of a passionate R&B songstress in today’s music scene. An aspect to notice, is how divergent Courtnie’s voice is in comparison to a lot of the artists today, and she is making sure that remains the case throughout her career.
This new track will appear off upcoming EP I Feel Like Color, that is set to release September 29th. The 6-track project will be a compilation of various records she has been working on in the past, and will re-emphasize the strength in her vocals.
The percussion in the track resurrects an erotic feeling that is both anthemic and mellowing. The tempo change is a fierce move, that I am in love with, and adds another element of animation the already reeling track. Her voice waves in and out and up and down the steady beat painting the image of riffs taking dips into the stereos in the studio and absorbing the sound.
Courtnie is a dynamic like her music. Living in Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and currently: Brooklyn, New York, the girl has traveled to various parts and has picked up multiple perspectives of music. She’s also a writer, which helps develop the lyricist within as she prepares herself for a new project!
