Lais has been through hell and back according to the "First" number on his new release SESSIION. The project has been in the works for roughly two years since it was announced via social media. The album saw 5 different revisions before it reached the mix and master room. Lais is a self-described tireless worker, so imagine the rigor he went through. It's hard enough to stay seated in a fixed position for more than 2 hours at a time, but Lais has a winning mentality.
The success of SESSIION depended solely on his ability to keep the project strewn through the many changes and diversion he underwent. People wonder why music critics delve into the psyche of the artist when they review R&B, but the material is deeply personal, almost by design. SESSIION is no different, like the preceding record in the series, there's an earnest hope that the emotional appeal of his music is cared for and treated accordingly.
