Many people have that one song that can erupt some serious emotions, and it often can feel as though the artist has taken listeners on a trip through old memories or is sharing the same emotions and life experiences with their fans. Artist Senior, real name James William Awad, is particularly gifted at making his fans feel connected to him through the art of storytelling.
Senior is a Canadian hip-hop and R&B artist who is passionate about creating music that reflects upon many of his life experiences. He keeps it up close and personal with his music, and writes most of his lyrics based on real-life stories he’s lived through. This element of openness and raw emotion creates a unique bond between himself and his fans, both sharing the same pain or happiness and living the same stories together within the songs.
The new album Senior is releasing on July 23rd, 2021, Break & Tell, has been highly anticipated among fans, and the album will feature 14 new songs to play on repeat. This album will be Awad’s second released album, as he has promised his fans to release an album yearly. Senior works hard to keep that promise to fans and is already anticipating touring after the release of his third album in the future.
Senior attributes some of his inspiration to artists Drake, Lil Baby, and The Weeknd and believes it would be fun to collaborate with many artists in the future. He even hopes to have some artists featured on his third album. Currently, Senior is anxiously anticipating the release of Break & Tell and can’t wait to finally share all his hard work with his fans. Awad is also getting prepared to perform at the 2021 Rolling Loud festival in Miami and Portugal, and they will be his first live performances.
Although Senior is still a new artist and learning along the way, his music career is starting to thrive. He has goals to reach the top spot on music charts and to continue to share his passion for writing music with the world. He explains that “consistency and learning from feedback” are important contributors to success for any aspiring artist.
Senior will often release sneak peaks and promotional videos for the upcoming album Break & Tell on his Instagram, @senior, and those wanting to pre-save the album can head here.
