Born in Nigeria and raised in London, the singer and songwriter Fidelis uses music as a means to explore the world and his own mind. Influenced by his experiences, heritage, and reflections, Fidelis blends poetic lyrics with soothing melodies akin to the likes of Pink Sweats, Ed Sheeran, and Sam Smith. Fidelis has been writing songs, learning instruments for the better part of the last decade, on a journey to find his sound. Fidelis wants his music to reach the people that feel lost and uninspired, the people that live with the fear of the unknown, and the dreamers who get lost in stories to escape from some of the harsh realities of life.
Fidelis has released his debut single titled ‘Want This’. Want This is a soulful ballad about a vow Fidelis made to himself to keep pushing forward for what he desires. It’s a song inspired by his own struggles not only as an artist but as a person trying to figure things out. The song tells a story of pain that is familiar to anyone who is attempting to achieve their dreams even when the challenges seem overwhelming.
The lyrics allow the listener to reflect on their own journey over a calming guitar loop. Listeners will be able to connect with their own determined desires while listening to this song. This single is Fidelis’ first release as a recording artist which he is set to follow up with more singles and an EP during the first half of 2021.
