"Uncommon Sessions: “Higher” by Shi la Rosa

Filmed by Ross Feighery

Shi la Rosa has breathed new life into her song Higher, off of her debut ep, Sometimes I Think of You. This revamped, slowed down, and saucier version gives la Rosa the space to explore her range and lean into the emotion behind the lyricism. It pushes much harder than the recorded version, as the power behind her voice is complimented by Eric Novak on sax, Garret Williams on upright bass, and Sink Slow on guitar. Location: Uncommon Ground (Chicago).
