Shinegawd Té Releases Demo Tape – The Shine Gawd

One of Houston’s Top Underground Artists, Shinegawd Té should receive a plaque for this one. From Round 2 to The Family to Bigger than Me, and every single in between. There’s no way this could just be a Demo Tape. This body of work released April 29th at midnight, called The Shine Gawd (click to listen) , shows his versatility as a writer and music composer. From having mentors like Nipsey Hussle to Trae tha Truth, Shinegawd Té doesn’t have room for error and it’s clearly heard throughout this project. Who else can compete with this flow of lyricism & vivid imagery paired with the alliteration of words so clear and fast that you have no choice, but to look at your speakers and be amazed. This is someone who founds sound and moved with it accordingly.

Production and Music composition on this piece is not only a vibe, but a need in this industry game. From a soft beat to the bass and the smooth vocals on certain singles to carry, you can see just how much this young artists has evolved in this game. Choosing the right producers & team for completion the Demo Tape lets you know off the back that time and effort was set in stone prior. The synthesizers to the playing of the piano puts the emotional aspect in it, making it relatable to what’s being said in the lyrics.

Just to jog your memory, when Houston Trend’s J.Renae had her Talk to Me LIVE Listening on IG, Shinegawd Té was frequently requested because of his concrete delivery on his singles. Though he is from Houston, his creativity ranges from all over the states, which is apparent in The Shine Gawd. This Demo Tape is the predecessor to the highly anticipated unreleased album.

The Shine Gawd, has shown its light to the world with this.

If this is only the piece, we can’t wait for the whole album.
