UMI Releases Debut Album “Forest in the City”: Streaming
- American singer-songwriter Tierra Umi Wilson, aka UMI released her long-awaited debut album “Forest in the City” on May 27, 2022 via RCA Records / Keep Cool.
The album comprises 15-track, including preceding singles “sorry”, “whatever u like” and “moonlit room”.
Executive produced by Veronica Vera, Danny Parra, Logiksmind and Tierra Umi Wilson. Creative direction by Eddie Mandell and Tierra Umi Wilson.
Four years in the making, with UMI at the helm of songwriting, production and creative direction alongside her trusted community of collaborators, the album explores UMI's life experiences as she left her nature-filled hometown of Seattle, Washington for Los Angeles, California.
UMI said of the album, “This album began with a question: What impact did humans leaving the forest have on our minds? Our mental health, our values? This led me to another question: Is the city our new forest? And how does the city impact our minds? Our mental health and values? Is it possible for us to feel fully at peace within the city? And while thinking on these questions I wrote my album. By the end of it, I came to realize that the forest never left me and neither did my peace. That my life is a journey of returning to that forest and helping others to do the same through my art and so this project is a collection of songs & visuals that evoke peace and transformation within the listener. A reminder that we are all little forests in the city :)”
