Most artists couldn’t land on Snow Aalegra’s “Ugh, These Temporary Highs” tour with a handful of records, but rising singer-songwriter Ogi isn’t like most artists. Her bold voice and unique narrative allows her to cut through the crowded streaming farm and effortlessly plant seeds of success. To bring her talents closer to the ears and minds of listeners around the world, the Los Angeles-based artist has announced that she will release her debut EP, Monologues, on May 5, 2022.
“These songs are my outlet to say what I really felt about something but didn’t say because my feelings didn’t fit the script,” Ogi said in recent press release.
“I was afraid of looking cocky or unruly or being overly resentful or too apathetic or being too affectionate. These are performances of songs by a person who feels like she’s performed all her life. How meta. The most relatable thing about my experience is that I tried to be something that I’m not to fall in line with an internalized notion of myself. In other words, I performed the expectations that I was given. And everyone can relate to forgoing the fullest expression of themselves for the sake of the crowd – the audience. But now I’m putting myself display and staging those thoughts I never intended for people to hear. We love radical (maybe too specific) honesty.”
Ogi has a lot to say and a endless array of musical tools to get her point across. Find out how she shares her latest stories through her new EP, Monologues, on May 5, 2022.
