Hip-hop and R&B artist Specyal T announces the release of her new album ‘Dose of Distinction 2’
Hip-hop and R&B artist Specyal T has announced the release of her new album ‘Dose of Distinction 2’. Released via Blackstream Records, ‘Dose of Distinction 2’ combines modern R&B with edgy urban beats and is a collection of deeply personal songs, finely wrought and smoothly delivered, which communicate subject matters close to Specyal T’s heart. This includes growing up black in a predominantly caucasian community and her journey of motherhood. Specyal T commented, "Dose Of Distinction 2 comes from a really personal place. I've managed to take my artistry to a level I hadn't dreamed of going in the past.”
The album follows on from the success of Specyal T’s first album ‘Dose of Distinction’ (2010), which debuted at #11 on the UK / R&B album charts - an achievement that stands as a testament to Specyal T's incredible talent and work ethic.
Based in Canada, Trish Hylton, popularly known as Specyal T, is an urban recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, producer, vocalist, mentor, writer and poet, and has performed over 250 shows throughout her musical career. With her naturally distinctive voice she is often compared to a young Lauryn Hill with a unique individual style similar to hip-hop superstar Missy Elliot. She also cites her other musical influences as TLC, Salt N Pepa, Boyz II Men, Timbaland, Musiq and Neptunes.
Recently, Specyal T was named as Ambassador and inducted into the “National Wall of Role Models” by BlackCanadians.com. “The last couple of years have been exciting for Canadian hip-hop and I'm proud to be a part of an emerging scene that's gaining a lot of international recognition."
There is no question Specyal T is a musical force to be reckoned with as she continues to push boundaries on her own personal musical journey.
