SiR might not be the biggest name in the music industry but those who know him love and appreciate the kind of music he does. Born, Sir Darryl Farris but mononymously called SiR, he is an American singer, song writer and record producer from Inglewood, California. SiR is signed to Top Dawg Entertainment but recently announced a joint signing with RCA Records.
The Inglewood singer grew up in the midst of gospel singers including his mother, brothers, and cousin. After earning a degree in recording arts and developing his songwriting and production skills, he landed a job engineering for Tyrese Gibson in 2012. While polishing his songwriting skills, SiR met Dre and Vidal (acclaimed songwriters). He also worked with Anita Baker from 2011 to 2015 co-writing material for Jill Scott, Ginuwine and even Stevie Wonder.
SiR released his first EP, HER in October of 2016 and it includes a feature on “Cadillac Dreams” by Big K.R.I.T. which led to a signing by Top Dawg Entertainment in February of 2017. He released his second EP HER TOO, this time through the label and it featured a guest appearance by Anderson .Paak. His major label studio album, November was released in January, last year.
The singer has now announced that his second album, Chasing Summer will be released on August 30th through TDE and RCA. He made the announcement via his Instagram. Also, a new song and video titled ‘Hair Down’ featuring Kendrick Lamar is expected to drop on Thursday.
