“Krush” by Kisharra B

 by Luke Dailey

[ Genres: Pop / R&B ]

The entire professional narrative of Kisharra B. is encapsulated in her official artist photo: glammed up with make-up, snazzy photoshop glamours, and bold cursive font that implicitly proclaims how dynamic she is. Music aside, it’s clear what she’s shooting for: larger-than-life pop star. You know, the kind you only refer to by their first name. It’s a noble ambition: there’s a lot of fierce competition, and if you want to be good, you have to be good. As you might expect, there are elements of her ultra-famous contemporaries in Kisharra’s music: Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga. There is, however, a certain spark that’s entirely her own. Production that feels a little more raw, vocals ever so less processed; a pervading sense of a true passion for music behind the cartoon image.

“Krush” is her debut symbol, and it’s lyrically almost a color-by-numbers exercise in contemporary pop songwriting. There’s vague allusions to being in love, a crooned chorus, and overriding atmosphere that feels effervescently amorous. A lot of the most talented names in the business are currently bending their pens to exemplify this form; considering the heavyweight competition, it’s actually pretty impressive that “Krush” manages to mostly hold its own. The unfortunate caveat is that “mostly.” While the songwriting is sharp, the track itself well produced, and the vocals talented, there’s nothing that’s screamingly unique. It’s all B+ material—very, very well done material, but in a field where tones of grade-A music is just more unnoticed grist for the mill, this is probably fatal. The slow hip-hop/RB churn of the track is almost intoxicating at times, but it’s just a hair too simple to really engage. Nothing deep or meaningful or even powerfully emotional is offered by Kisharra herself, either from the lyrics or the performance. She’s pulled off a solid track, but solid, unfortunately, isn’t good enough.

It’s decent music. No doubt, somewhere, there’s an aimless teenage girl who’ll hear “Krush” and hear echos of her own day-to-day tribulations in it; obsess over the song for a while, play it fifty odd times…only to ultimately discard it and move on to the next fresh thing. Kisharra isn’t untalented: the lingering sense is that a too-strict adherence to industry standards is holding back a pent-up original spark. Here’s hoping she finds the creative space to let it roar to life.

It all started from a Mother’s bribe…………….At the tender age of three and crying hysterically from the thought of singing at church in front of thousands,…..Kisharra’s mother bribed her with these unforgettable words …”I’ll buy you a happy meal” … and now 20 plus years later here we are today! Kisharra realized singing was what she wanted to do and yes the Happy Meal made it all the better!

From the beginning music has been a part of who she is. Kisharra B aka “Shar” combines a mix of the pop and rock genre to express herself artistically through song. This Ohio native recording artist and very talented songwriter’s story has just begun, but sure to be filled with a track record of history making accomplishments. Kisharra B is self driven by her commitment and dedication to strive to perfect her craft. She has a passion second to none and to simply put it plainly…… Kisharra B is music! Her recently recorded song “Covergirl” nails the essence of Kisharra’s confidence while she makes a declarative statement of power over guitar saturated rock instrumentation.

Written by Kisharra and produced by grammy award winning producer Kevin Deane, this track will definitely carve her niche in today’s industry. Covergirl reflects an amazing introspective process of precision, purpose and self empowerment for all women to embrace. The uptempo 2nd single release “Krush” produced by Derek Dixie and written by Kisharra B and Derek …portrays a very distinctive musical interpretation, capturing a pop music sound with a Rock n Roll twist mixed with tribal drumming!!! Her most recent work includes the song “Famous” which is featured on the Spike Lee film produced movie soundtrack “You’re nobody til somebody kills you” released fall of 2012!!…..Kisharra B hasn’t even scratched the surface yet folks!! With an nationally and internationally tour in the works, along with her very own clothing line and future collaborations musically……the best is yet to come.

Her library of music and autobiography is full of unreleased material and unheard tracks she can’t wait for the world to hear and read! Kisharra B elaborates on her motivational drive by adding, Being the daughter of a preacher, my favorite scripture that keeps me focused is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” This lets me know as long as I depend on him and no matter what comes my way, temptation or trial, he’ll give me the strength and confidence to make it!! We invite you to experience the sounds of Kisharra B aka SHAR!!!!!…..The POP/ROCK world has a new Covergirl.
