This week we have the great pleasure of speaking with Vivian Sessoms.Raised in a musical family in Harlem, Vivian’s list of credits in the musicbusiness requires a lot of scrolling, with notables like Stevie Wonder,Sinead O Connor, and Ryuichi Sakamoto on the list. Vivian stunned us withher two part album entitled LIFE, an epic collection of songs and lusharrangements done with her husband, Chris Parks, and featuring the likes ofKeyon Harold, Casey Benjamin, Shedrick Mitchell, and Amp Fiddler. Herpowerful social commentary is mixed throughout, with the most powerfultrack - I Can’t Breathe - dedicated to Erica Garner.
