Southern Pin-Up/Honeywax
This Broadway star and screen actress displays her flair for the dramatic with a hot debut. Saycon delivers an eclectic mix of R&B, pop-rock and jazz. But her lyrics and vocal delivery seal the deal. Not everyone can live up to the repertoire of icons like Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles, but not everyone is an artist of this caliber.-

Bio

SAYCON makes her recording debut with the independent release, “Southern Pin-Up” (Honeywax). The album, “Southern Pin-Up” fuses Pop-Soul with R&B, and a little rock. Eastern influenced hip-hop beats of the title, “Southern Pin-Up” has bounce with an international flair, after flirting with listeners Saycon flips the script to educate . Sinatra Song, a remake of the classic “It Was a Very Good Year”, is a standout. Arguably the hottest song on the album it takes a classic jazz track and makes it a soul hit! Old fashioned R&B love tune, “Possible” speaks of unrequited love. The historically based romp, “Hottentot” has a smooth Sade feel that gives an alluring look into the psyche of America’s obsession with the female derrière: (sample lyric)
‘It was . . . something to behold, something so awesome. Apparently, defied gravity, Einstein wouldn’t believe the laws of her physique . . .”

In tribute to her home state Saycon’s rendition of “Georgia On My Mind” is a bossa nova influenced take on the song that Ray Charles made a classic.
The album also includes : “Recognize”, and “Mend This”. Plus, a bonus remix of the title track.
