An acute, compelling performance finds Inna Powell’s anxious, soft-spoken persona carefully coming to terms with himself. The alt-folk solo act backed by a four-piece band from Toronto has channeled the influence of songwriters such as Connor Oberst, Sufjan Stevens and Land of Talk.
Front-person Inna Powell, a six-foot, unassuming powerhouse, who carefully calls out from their title track I Know I Pray to God, “I heard you speak when you thought I was asleep”. The opening line has the songwriter holding his heart close to his sleeve with memorable warmth that directs the Vancouver-born artist back to his roots.
“The Vanishing Act” is an immaculate record, thick with harmony and interplay. His band unifies grounded licks, hip-hop beats, and emo vocals, presenting a musical experience of undeniable storytelling. Inna Powell captures situational nostalgia as he watches his youth fade in the rearview mirror and becomes longing for grace.
Confidential Records and sister management company 2Spoons Mgmt. are proud to assist Inna Powell as he releases his debut record “The Vanishing Act”.
