about

Drift is the second album in the Pieces trilogy of new music created in the aftermath of the tragic November 2017 Sonoma County wildfires. Driving through flames with her family to escape the Tubbs fire, Drift represents the subsequent period of Eki Shola’s wanting to be cocooned within a movement that was rhythmic and comforting. A yearning for what was. Mellow beats to languidly shift and float upon was the respite Eki Shola's body and mind needed. Missing the security of a familiar home had her yearning for the family homes she grew up in, in London and New York. Feeling emotionally displaced, Eki Shola started to write songs that had comforting grooves reminiscent of the chillout downtempo tunes that had her hooked into jazzy electronica back in the early 2000s. More than anything, it was the memories of the feelings of warmth, love, and relaxation evoked from that time that Eki Shola craved and found herself subsequently composing for self-healing.
