London-based Ghanaian Kwabena Adjepong, aka Kwabs, is a highly talented singer/songwriter whose voice is nestled nicely somewhere in between jazz and soul. Kwabena’s musical influences include Jill Scott, Erkyah Badu, Cece Winans and Fred Hammond. Recently he teamed up with fellow producer Dave Okumu of The Invisible for a new song called “Spirit Fade,” and the result is amazing. Enjoy.
Jessie Ware announced the arrival of the new single from Kwabena Adjepong, a.k.a.Kwabs, and I think we’ll all be happy to hear more. This is soft and cooling evening breeze called “Spirit Fade”, recorded by Devotion producer Dave Okumu. He has a deep and distinctive voice, and the production is pure class.
Let Kwabs Take You On A 'Getaway'
While it’s quite unfair that we have no choice but to watch videos to be able to experience the exquisite voice of Kwabs, beggars can’t be choosers, and until we get some music released from this talented man, I’ll gladly make You Tube my BFF in order to get a hit of that thick, warm, rich tone of his. Now Kwabs has given us an early Christmas present, and while it may not be a release, it is a video of a live performance of an original track recorded earlier in the year. Accompanied simply by keys and allowing his flawless and emotive voice to tell the story of a mother and son, “Getaway” reminds us yet again why we need an artist of the caliber of Kwabs out there in a world overflowing with manufactured pop puppets and music that celebrates mediocrity.
