Premiere: Leo Miyagee – W.O.R.D

“The purpose of this whole thing was to show people it’s okay to sometimes feel discomfort and negative emotions and that they need tackle these emotions in a positive and productive way.”

 

We’re excited to present the first video on our new offshoot label, District Recordings.

It’s the first single from Leo Miyagee’s forthcoming EP ‘Trust God, Love Yours, Do Bits In Life’ which drops in full on October 6. He’ll also be performing the EP at a special launch in Dublin’s city centre the day before. Details to be announced.

Leo is a London-raised, Belfast-based, Zimbabwean artist.

According to him the narrative of the new EP is a diary of his own personal and spiritual growth during a time where he was obsessed over “who I am, where I’m from, who I want to be, as well as embracing my own roots and heritage in addition to the cultures I was raised and now live in”.

“Ultimately it deals heavily with my belief in God which has always been there and how it helped me through this existential crisis. The purpose of this whole thing was to show people it’s okay to sometimes feel discomfort and negative emotions and that they need tackle these emotions in a positive and productive way.”
