Brooklyn’s own N’kechi “NK” Iman is a soulful songstress and songwriter with a sound that soothes. Her sonic abilities resemble R&B legends Toni Braxton and Tamia but carries the tone of the India Arie. NK performed in prominent NY stages such as SOB’s, Milk River Bar and Lounge, The Delancey, Bowery Electric, Aloha NYC and The Social Butterfly. NK personifies the subtle power of R&B.
“Flames” is crooned over country styled guitar strings. NK sings of a fight to escape the burning feeling of anguish. She carols about finding power in a moment of weakness. Constantly beating herself up on record for being held captive by her negative thoughts, but looks to God for forgiveness. “I make mistakes, Lord, I am so sorry… I want to live!”. “Flames” lyrics are symbolic of the phoenix before it rose from the ashes. NK takes us on a journey through the eyes of someone who hasn’t seen the light at the end of the tunnel but continues to push towards that peace of mind. This inspirational ballad rings true for many people dealing with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and overall mental health issues. N’kechi “NK” Iman’s “Flames” is a therapeutic record that tugs at your heart strings.
