I feel in love with Tish Hyman’s voice instantly when I heard her song “Subway Art,” and the music video that portrayed her enamored with fellow train passengers made the song even more compelling. So you can imagine how excited I was to talk to her in June at the BET Experience kick off event at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.

Check out my interview with the Bronx native to find out her inspiration for the song and how she hopes the message of her debut album, Dedicated To:, impacts her listeners.
