The music world welcomes another masterpiece from HeIsTheArtist in the form of his latest EP, “Dreaming in Emerald City.” Released on July 28th, this six-track musical journey is a harmonious mix of Broadway-style Neo-Soul, inspired by legendary motion pictures “The Wizard of Oz” and “The West Side Story.” This Christian R&B artist successfully knits his influences from movies and music legends, creating an EP packed full of inspiration, empathy, and a desire for change.

The EP opens with the firm rhythmical strides of “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows,” a cover of the revered Judy Garland’s song. Accompanying this is HeIsTheArtist’s original composition “Mi Amor,” a sonorous tribute to the referenced classics, introducing the underlying theme of this EP: empathy for those yearning for a change and a better life.

Following these opening tracks, HeIsTheArtist lifts the heart of listeners with his tender renditions of “Lovin’You” by Minnie Riperton and “I Believe in You and Me” by Whitney Houston. These passionately delivered covers resonate an inspirational message, reminding listeners to remain in close proximity to what their hearts desire and cherish the love they encounter in their lives.

The EP takes a bold and self-assured stance with anthemic covers of “Diamonds” by Rihanna and “Brown Skin” by India.Arie. With the golden ray of HeIsTheArtist’s voice illuminating these tracks, listeners are encouraged to embrace self-love, breaking free from societal cosmetic standards.

Interestingly, “Dreaming in Emerald City” was unveiled on the Islamic holiday of Ashura. This important date commemorates Moses’s miraculous parting of the Red Sea, escorting the Israelites to what they called “Home.” This correlation draws parallels between HeIsTheArtist’s music and the historical event, both seeking to guide their followers towards a more fulfilling, desired existence.

Upon its release, the EP made its mark on the charts with the lead single, “I Believe in You and Me,” ascending the ranks to the UK iTunes R&B Top 10. Its sibling, “Mi Amor,” followed closely behind, peaking at #2 on the same chart. Collectively, tracks from the EP have garnered impressive digital traction with over 200K Spotify streams proving the artist’s increasing prominence in the music scene.

The EP’s success reaches beyond digital auditors with a visual element in play. A sensory feast awaits with HeIsTheArtist’s video for “I Believe in You and Me” accessible on Youtube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7nw9JDXMpE. This visually stunning rendition further highlights the artist’s dedication to his craft and commitment to create a multifaceted connection with his listeners.

Despite the mass appeal of this latest musical offering, HeIsTheArtist remained rooted in his mission of creating songs that serve as soundtracks to listeners’ lives. He effortlessly marries the glamour of Broadway, the timeless charm of Old Hollywood, and the resonating echoes of Christian R&B, creating a musical experience that is both enjoyable and deeply meaningful.

HeIsTheArtist’s “Dreaming in Emerald City” is sweeping across the globe, touching the hearts of listeners with its empathetic and inspiring themes. This EP is not just a collection of songs, but a journey through music, taking the listener by hand and guiding them towards empathy, love and self-discovery.
