I’ve been a friend and fan of Faylita Hicks for quite a while, and watching Faylita‘s journey as an artist, performer and creative has been a pleasure and a joy. Faylita marched into the darkness of 2020 with the release of HOODWITCH, a stirring collection of poems and images that reflected Faylita‘s past, both bad and good. Out of this book release came notoriety, opportunities and accreditation, so it makes sense that with such accomplishment bolstering Faylita at the present, the next step would be a new project in the form of A NEW NAME FOR MY LOVE. The roster, aside from the poetry of Faylita, includes production by Hanz Nobe and Chris Varvaro and guest vocals from SymmaTree, making the album as much of a family affair as it is a personal statement. Let’s get the numbers run up on A NEW NAME FOR MY LOVE so that the next time we’re talking about Faylita Hicks, we’ll be talking about Grammy consideration and nomination.
