“Five Minutes With” R&B singer-songwriter SENTi

Garryson Auguste, better known as SENTi, is a rising R&B singer-songwriter based in Vancouver who is paving his way in the music industry using his fluid melodies and emotive writing style to connect with listeners.

He was raised in Surrey by hardworking Haitian parents and began writing poetry at the early age of 8. After graduating high school, he attended college for a year before deciding to shift his focus to pursue music. In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the quarantined singer wrote and engineered his biggest hit to date, “SPACE”, which has gained over 1 million streams on Spotify. The track is infectiously catchy and promotes healing and self-reflection. In 2022, with the help of Grammy-nominated producer and director, Joseph L’Etranger, he released his first music video for his bounce-back anthem “Where Were You”. With new sounds expected to release in the near future, it’s safe to say SENTi is an artist to watch for in 2023.
