Brooklyn, NY - Sug Daniels is a singer, songwriter and producer who is using the tools around her to capture the emotions of an era. Daniels’ work is as colorful, vulnerable, and charismatic as her personality. She thoughtfully combines elements of folk, R&B, and low-fi alternatives to create personal and tender music interlaced with messages of truth and positive change.
Growing up in the rural town of Smyrna, Delaware, Sug had felt first-hand both the extreme joy and the major isolation that many LGBTQ+ people experience in Southern Baptist-style churches. After coming out, she left the church but continued her journey armed with the love of powerful music and celebration of community. After leading two previous musical projects, Hoochi Coochi and FlowCity, Sug has set out to create solo music that reflects her current views and personal stories.
Sug is stoked to share her new single, out July 7th.
Here's what she had to say about it: "Named after the japanese art of fixing broken poetry with liquid gold, Kintsugi addresses the botched relationship between America and a black woman coming into her own. A realistic but hopeful tone, Kintsugi looks towards the future in hopes that the obvious and apparent bigotry and one sidedness can allow for change and reparations resulting in a nation that’s one for all and all for one."
