Every week, we are very excited about sharing our newcomer of the week with you. Today, the HighClouds team decides to highlight the work of a mysterious young artist from the US: visionnaire. This project, that is described as a whole concept, is represented by a lotus flower. His songs turn making music into a means of self-healing and rebirth. The 23-year-old artist already shared two future R&B tracks, including a cover of The Weeknd.

visionnaire‘s songs are more than music, they are a therapy and a rebirth for the young artist!

visionnaire is a concept that essentially grew out of ruin. The artist explained to us that the end of last year and the beginning of 2016 were the lowest point in his life. Indeed, the talented artist was suffering from an existential depression. Luckily, some friends were very supportive and that is the reason why he decided to make music again. This project means a lot to him: more than sounds, his songs can be seen as a therapy.

visionnaire‘s “her aura loud” is a tribute to black women.

In his first original track “her aura loud”, visionnaire wants to give a sonic tribute to black women. From what we understand, some of them took particularly care of him during difficult moments. As the artist wrote:

It started as a prose post I wrote and quickly became a full-fledged record after the overwhelming support I’d received on Tumblr for ‘parties.’. The beat incorporates elements of hip-hop, new jersey house, future bass and r&b with jazz chords and melodies to of synthesize a theme as multifaceted and colorful as black women are in real life.

Then, with maturity and wisdom, the artist added:

“her aura loud” has faced great positive feedback and great negative feedback – the latter pertaining to the lyrical content. based on my innate pessimism alone, I was certainly prepared for dismissive and subliminal or even overtly racist negative criticisms of the song. But this preparedness for the worst is also why every listen, like, comment, repost, follow and download mean so much to me.

visionnaire also shared “parties”, another track that is actually a cover of The Weeknd. The track “The party & The After Party”, which is taken from his 2011’s “House of Balloons” and based on a Beach House‘s sample, deals with drugs, sex, and destructive lifestyle. The artist recreated the beat with just his voice, his hands, and most of all, a lot of passion and respect for the ambiance and mood that the song sets.

visionnaire’s music comes from the heart and is vibrant and meaningful

visionnaire is definitely an artist to watch. His music comes from the heart and almost means life to him. He promised us to share more music this summer and we really hope we will vibrate as much as we did for this first two tracks!
