ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The words just come and the mic is the telegram to spread them. People receive these telegrams and feel everything I meant and see everything I wrote. That’s my motivation, to help people see and feel in our increasingly desensitized culture.” – Sunni Soper, 2014

For Public Consumption – Debut album

Sunni Soper’s voice is direct and strong, yet warm and inviting. Her East Coast accent is infused with a whimsical vibe drawn from the West and a breezy meter reminiscent of an Austin summer evening. Her words transcend region, time and genre to present audiences with moments that immediately resonate – at once familiar, but unmistakably fresh.

Is this spoken word or hip hop? Forget the question. Forget such arbitrary lines of artistic boundary. Like those of state and city borders, some lines are best ignored. Instead, focus on Sunni’s lines. Linger in the air between breaths and the scenes brought together through rhyme.

From coffee houses to hip hop shows, Sunni’s words have won over intimate gatherings and hushed concert halls. She quickly earned a reputation for leaving audiences breathless. Poets aren’t usually known for “arriving on the scene” and creating a buzz, but that is exactly the situation in which Sunni found herself.

“Four of five months after I shared my first piece publicly, a woman in the audience came up to me and asked me where she could buy more,” recalls Sunni. “This started happening with greater frequency.”

After deflecting requests from fans for recorded performances for months, Sunni found herself nudged into the recording studio by longtime friend.

“One day I was having a casual conversation with a couple of friends, one of which was Trent Spears (aka DJ Supreme, founder of Notably Proficient Music) - who I have known since high school. I mentioned the requests I had been receiving regarding purchasable product and he reminded me that he has a full recording setup and then asked me why we weren't making that happen.”

Spurred by self-made serendipity, Sunni stepped up to the opportunity.

“I didn't have a good answer. So, I sent my first batch of 56 pieces to the Library of Congress for copyright and went to work picking the tracks for the project. We consulted with Terrany Johnson (aka Tee Double) at Urban Artist Alliance to make sure all the paperwork, contracts, and back-end business were taken care of properly and got to work. This initial conversation happened in March 2014. Here it is July 2014 and we are on the precipice of releasing what wasn't even a thought in February 2014, ready to jump.”

The result of this collaboration is 15 original poems plucked from the air, set to music and presented for the world to experience. Produced by Trent Spears and mastered by Terrany Johnson at Kinetic Global Media Group, Sunni’s natural talent for rhythm and rhyme is transformed to aural candy that nourishes the soul. Sunni Soper’s debut album, For Public Consumption, represents the crossroads where tenacity meets dreams.
