Khyenci Tienne – Balance (EP)

@Khyenci celebrates her 21st birthday not with a shot, but with her 3 track debut Balance. Featuring production from Sofasound, MarcusrBeats and Tota, Balance showcases Khyenci’s penchant for songwriting and flexing her smoky voice into natural melodies and impressive harmonies. There are no hit records on this EP, but who’s aiming for hits anymore anyway?

Khyenci drops a wealth of nuggets that promote self-care, self-confidence and believing in yourself. Listening to Balance reminds us that lyricists come in more forms than emcees. Khyenci paints pictures with her words, and the fact that her voice makes you melt is a plus. With an endless amount of RNBass enthusiasts sprouting up in the Bay’s scene, Khyenci Tienne’s attention to more traditional R&B is both refreshing and welcome.
