After being named her hometown’s ‘Best Musician‘ by Charlotte Magazine earlier this year, R&B and Neo-Soul artist Cyanca releases her long-awaited sophomore project I’m Staying Home today (6/28/2019). Inspired by Solange’s When I Get Home, the three-track EP is a concise, deeply personal project that finds Cyanca opening up to her fans like never before.
“I enjoy the blissful moments with my friends but I also love laying on my couch lounging in my peaceful thoughts all by myself. Home also represents family. When I feel overwhelmed or sad I always find myself impulsively driving down I-85 to be around them. Now that I’m older I’m learning the importance of spending time with your loved ones… We have our demons but the love is unconditional no matter what. With this project I wanted to open up more to my fans and talk about my upbringing and things I experienced as a child. From skeletons in the closet and classic cartoons, to losing a mother and my accomplishments. ‘Home is where the heart is’ and I ain’t going outside for no one.” –Cyanca
