#Growns what we wanted to take a little time out to do today is to follow Sy’s lead. In anticipation of Friday’s release of Sometimes A Rose Will Grow In Concrete Sy has posted this great retrospective of her 2008 release Conflict. An introduction for some and a remembrance for others. Make sure to check back here tomorrow for our GFM Spotlight Interview with Sy which I believe is her first interview surrounding the new project.

Video Description

An in-depth look at Sy Smith’s 2008 critically-acclaimed album “Conflict” featuring “Fly Away With Me”, “The Art Of You”, “Spies” and more – including interview footage, video clips and live performance clips.
Shot and directed by Shawn Carter Peterson.
