Syreeta Thompson is more than a singer, she’s a well-rounded and versatile singer-songwriter. Honed to her roots and being the great instrumentalist that she is, Syreeta has that gift to beautifully mixed the sounds of jazz, R&B, and soul with a touch of gospel all in one track. She’s inspiring to say the least! We are very excited to have her on our blog as we recently interviewed the songbird about her upcoming plans, music, and what she has learned while working in the music industry.
