As one of Gashi’s biggest fans and supporters since 2013, it is always a pleasure to talk about him until I am blue in the face. I consider myself one of the people who was graced by his talents very early in his career, and I did my part to make sure music lovers who followed me knew about him, my peers in the business, and other New York City talent. Yesterday, the Albanian-American star released his live performance of ‘Lies’ for VEVO’s ‘Ctrl.At.Home’ series on his YouTube channel.
If you ever had the chance to experience Gashi in a live setting, you will know that he sounds the same as his records. The man had the vocal control and pedigree of the greats before he became one himself. Without taking more precious time from you to sell you on his artistry, I invite you to watch him in action below. The record production reminds me of the sultry and sensual style behind the likes of Sade and the late great rockstar, Prince.
