Rebecca Sichon’s single “Breaking Free” is a true gem in the contemporary R&B scene. Dialing down complexity for sheer emotional power, her voice takes center stage and rightfully so—it’s as silky and welcoming as any vocal performance you’ll yearn to hear repeated.
Brought into existence with Juno-nominated Mathew V and Jared Manierka, this track is all about self-love—breaking away from what holds us back– wrapped in an arrangement that feels both current and timeless. There’s a swelling tenderness in each verse; its slow burn puts you at ease while laying bare our own vulnerabilities.
You listen to this piece, nod along thanks to the relaxing but stirring beat beneath it—and then those vocals hit again: deep digs without the need for fireworks—a testament to Rebecca’s command over your emotions through her spectacular pipes straight out of Vancouver’s vibe-soaked streets.
It doesn’t bog you down with heavy hands but carries production quality underpinning every note like delicate brushstrokes on an impressionist painting. So whilst Britain may have Adele serenading heart-torn tales, across the pond we’ve got bright shards of free-falling soul resonating in Sichon elixirs ready for affectionate playback thrice over.
“Breaking Free,” encapsulating more than just easy listening tunes—it invites hopefulness into your rhythm-seeking souls who fancy that kind of thing. It elegantly twines feelings around melodies assuredly etching themselves in mental soundtracks meant for softly lit evenings or retrospective pauses within fast-pacing worlds.
