NEW: Kwabs – Getaway

KwabsKwabena Adjepong simply known as ‘Kwabs’ has the kind of recording voice that has the potential to sell platinum albums, so rich in tone that you could listen to it all day, he goes from warm and deep to hitting beautiful high notes with such control. His crossover brand of soulful and bluesy jazz is something that seems to have found a new genereration of followers with artists such as Esperanza Spalding , Natalie Duncan and Lianne La Havas finding much success. We first talked about Kwabs back in podcast number 5.5 and introduced you to his version of James Blake’s Wilhelm Scream, Getaway is a song from the same live sessions that are being released over Kwabs’ YouTube channel, it tells of a story between a mother and her son. Longing, intensely emotional and heartbreaking, it’s a performance made all the more profound when you hear Kwabs talk about coming to terms with being adopted as a kid in a 2010 documentary ‘Goldies Band: By Royal Appointment’. I can’t wait for an album.
