Georgia native Shai Nowell releases his highly-anticipated debut EP, “Please Tame Me”.
The 5-track project is unconventional in structure, with Shai allowing features from friends and collaborators Nai.brxx, Gwaimak, Wiley from Atlanta, and RobOlu to take place of his own voice at times in order to help him communicate his creative vision. Each feature contributes uniquely to the funk-infused production, showing how Shai allows his sound to be shaped by his underground musical peers as much as his predecessors.
The final track pays homage to one of the artist’s greatest inspirations and late friend Jarrod Milton, who passed away earlier this year. Shai Nowell’s dynamic and moving influences can be heard through his project’s meticulous lyricism, composition, and additional visual elements.
