Renaissance, a 6 track expression, represents the culmination, at this point in time, of passive and active exposure to, and immersion in diverse art forms, influences, philosophies and thought patterns from a range of distinct genres and eras; 80’s ,90’s & 2000’s Soul, TrapSoul, Neo-Soul and contemporary RnB. Peerayce worked towards evoking the longing for things deeply desired but only just slightly out of reach, tantalizingly so.
In these times where brevity is preferred/treasured, what has been executed in this instance of creation can be summed up by a single word, nostalgia.
Renaissance is (an experience) fueled by introspection, examining experiences, mental and emotional processes; parsing things, dissecting, working towards rebirth and a fresh start.
