Product Notes

Setra, whose name means 'daughter of the sun,' grew up all over the world. This multi-talented singer/songwriter has been described as 'the little girl with the big mouth.' Before putting together her first collection of songs, Setra worked with Tony Wilson (tech for the Rolling Stones' Bigger Bang worldd tour) to build her home recording faciity where she wrote and produced a collection of songs about life, aptly entitled 'Songs About It.' In addition to writing these catchy, quirky songs, Setra also performed the music and produced and mixed the album herself along with a little help from some great musicians. Pianist, Joe Scott, who graced the albums of and/or toured with Lou Rawls, Aretha Franklin and Michael Jackson, added his magic fingers to 'Hearts & Flowers.' And Kamu, who's skills have graced the albums of stars like Chaka Khan and Luther Vandross, played guitar on 'This Time,' as well as produced the track. 'In My Room' is one of several songs Setra recorded for Columbia Records, before their mutual parting of ways. 'They just didn't get me as an artist,' Setra says. 'They were trying to turn me into another Lil' Kim. Don't get me wrong, I think Lil' Kim is an amazing entertainer. That's just not who I am. It's like trying to turn Lenny Kravitz into another Snoop Dogg.' In addition to producing her own debut CD, Setra also arranged and performed vocals for Hoppy Komiyama on his Toshiba-EMI album and on the Refugee Camp's production for Sony/Japan artist, Pushim's hit single, 'It's Too Late.' You may have seen Setra perform and share her views in the documentary entitled 'Love Letter to New York' where she, Clive Davis, Chocolate Genius and a host of others talked about their love of music and making it happen in New York City. Setra just recently got her first tattoo on the much talked about new hit show, LA Ink, where she shared her views about her music and sang for her television audience. One listen to Setra's introspective lyrics, catchy melodies and sultry vocals and it's clear why she's been sought after by Sony for both her writing skills as well as her artistry. 'Getting a deal is not important to me,' she says. 'Staying true to the song is what it's all about.'
