Tawiah - “Starts Again” (Live Performance)

Great indie music + sick locs = noteworthy.

GET TO KNOW: TAWIAH

image

South London Brit-school alum Tawiah has roots in Ghana and was born and raised in the UK. She’s been steadily building her career over the past few years collaborating with CeeLoMicachu, Wale and Corinne Bailey Rae while being showered with praise from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Mark Ronson. In 2008 she gave us her first EP, and now her second, FREEdom Drop is here (stream and download above).

The album is gorgeous - hypnotic, experimental and varied. It confirms that Tawiah stays singing our life with her wordsor in her own (less corny) words ”I’m an emotional person so there’s some deep shit. Some emotive shit.” She rounds the album out with a reinterpretation of Bobby Caldwell's/Dwele's 'Open Your Eyes' - and smashes.

Tawiah’s lyrics capture the complexity of growing up, and choose powerful vulnerability over surface-level gloss. While it can’t be easy bucking the tide, she does it without falling back on ideas of what black artists should sound like or do. In an industry of clones Tawiah is delightfully weird.

"Breakaway" (Original Mix) by Norman Doray vs Tawiah [PREVIEW]

Check out the preview for Norman Doray's forthcoming single, “Breakaway.” Tawiah's vocals are absolutely phenomenal. I've got chills, beat-boosters!

"Breakaway" drops October 26th on One More Tune.

BONUS:

It’s been a good summer for Norman Doray, with the success of his Chase The Sun track (co-produced with David Tort) the cherry on top of a busy season’s international DJing. Now he’s really finishing things in style with his debut solo mix compilation Norman Doray presents Strictly Ibiza to Amsterdam, a double faceted offer that takes in tracks as diverse as Sandy Rivera & Yasmeen’s Love and John Dahlback’s Flirt.”

Enjoy!

Peace,

Dani Gee

Tawiah reminds me of THE EX. “Watch Out” was kinda our song.  I’m excited as shit about her new album tho.  Studio versions of these songs have got to be crazy amazing. The break away thing though? Done.

Tawiah - Break Away (Acoustic Live)

Aaliyah Revisted...If You Don't Have It Your Missing Out! Get It Right Here!

          

I wanted to be shady and keep this all to myself BUT I CAN’T!!! It’s too good and ALL people should have access to GREAT MUSIC! Since the passing of Aaliyah NO ONE has came to the table with such grace and poise and the late songbird. One of my FAVORITE blogs SoulCulture compiled a tribute album of GREAT ARTIST (some ONLY known by SOULHEADS like myself) and they did Ms. Haughton justice!!!!

            

It’s a GREAT Album that they gave out FOR FREE!!!!! Here’s the download.

Download and please let me know what you think!!!!!!
