The Sesh | S03E03 - Shi La Rosa
The Sesh Folks were out one evening enjoying some incredible live music and almost immediately completely captivated by the night’s opening act….and just like that, lucky us. Shi la Rosa was booked into The Sesh. We heard some great music and had a great conversation from everything about her music – creating it, the influences that went into it, her love of strawberries, and even Shi la Rosa, the marathoner.

I covered this on my recent episode of Neon Broadcast, but it's worth mentioning again. The track came out at the end of last year with singer Shi La Rosa singing smoothly over Sink Slow production. Both represent Chicago properly. This one is perfect for rainfall.
