A Haitian based in the City of Angels, Sig Official is an independent artist who is making waves in the industry with her defining sound. Finding influences in the Afrobeat culture, Haitian Kompa, and Zouk, the unique creative has expanded her haven for listeners with her new single “Pause.”
Born in Port Au Prince, Haiti, and growing up on the East Coast, Sig has always indulged in her love for music, which is why it came as no surprise to her when she suddenly found herself in the middle of Los Angeles, California.
The talented musician started producing for local artists while acquiring her degree at the lauded Arts Institute. Dipping her toes in the music industry, Sig found herself wanting to further explore the business and decided to take a headfirst dive by grabbing the microphone herself.
Introducing a brand-new sound and employing powerful beats as her auditory signature, Sig Official began making her way to the West Coast and recording music over African-mannered sounds. With the release of her unique pieces, which inspired connection within kindred souls, it wasn’t long before the music artist became a crowd favorite.
Not just introducing a new sound to her listeners, Sig is also known for her ability to translate and portray the difficulties that her people in Haiti and the LGBT community have been facing through flavorful tracks.
“My birth country of Haiti as well as the rest of the world has always been going through hardships, and many have gone untelevised,” she shares. “Not everyone can speak out about the experiences they face nor get the recognition they deserve. My music is able to give people a sense of identification.”
Marrying the elements of Afro/Kompa-like beats with the intense flavors of hip-hop and rap, Sig turns the spotlight on the struggles of minorities and attracts a diverse group of listeners, most of whom feel overlooked or suffocated in society’s restricting ideals.
“Moving from the East Coast to the West Coast, I felt like I left some people behind. I decided to connect with them through my music, merchandise, and social media platforms. The positive outcomes in my current music reaffirms that there is a market for the style of music I present today.”
Through the euphoric melody of Sig Official’s sound, which carries influence from various cultures, Sig Official creates a haven for people of her culture to shelter under and be heard. Her unique and incredible connection to her listeners has easily made Sig one of the top music artists to watch for.
Her most recent self-produced single, “Kreyol,” has spiked a tremendous result and incited an overwhelmingly positive response in the local community and her growing following in Haiti. The fantastic success of “Kreyol” has been closely replicated by her latest track, “Pause,” which has made the grim year of 2020 shine a little brighter.
Continuously surpassing the industry’s expectations, Sig Official can only produce significant outcomes in the next year, whether as a music artist expanding her global audience or a representative of her people in Haiti and the LGBT community, giving them a safe space to breathe in.
“I want people to be able to get to know me and my music for its truth.” Encouraging awareness of Haiti and her people, the singer is on a journey to inspire love and pride in the culture and music. “I hope for the people to know that they are heard and someone like them can make it.”
