Yu Leseberg Client John Kirby Co-Writes and Co-Produces Songs on Solange Knowles' critically acclaimed new album "A Seat At the Table" released by Columbia Records

Yu Leseberg and Helen Yu, Esq. are thrilled to congratulate friend and client John Kirby on his stunning contributions to Solange Knowles’ chart-topping album A Seat at the Table. John, a multi-talented musician, served as a co-producer on 3 tracks on Solange’s critically acclaimed album A Seat at the Table, released by Columbia Records on September 30, 2016. In addition to co-producing 3 tracks on the album, John Kirby co-wrote 2 songs, “Borderline (An Ode to Self Care)” and “Junie,” as well as lending his fine musicianship to many of the songs on the album.

“John is one of the most amazing talents – he can make anything sound like an old school sample. His production skills are so next level,” says his attorney Helen Yu. “He’s very humble and keeps his head down, but I feel he’s a secret weapon for Solange.”

A Seat at the Table has been a massive success with both fans and critics alike, debuting at Number One on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums Charts. Pitchfork gave the record a whopping 8.7 rating, calling it “a document of historical significance, not just for its formidable musical achievements but for the way it encapsulates black cultural and social history with such richness, generosity, and truth.” “Cranes in the Sky,” which features John Kirby’s haunting and memorable synthesizers, was featured as Pitchfork’s “Best New Track” and is rapidly climbing the charts.

“Congratulations, John… We toast your hard-earned success and can’t wait to hear your next project!”
