The fact that talent shows can sometimes produce regular hits became clear in the BBC program Goldie's Band, where the British audience first came to know Kwabena Adjepong. The beautiful soul voice and perfectly timed delivery of the 23-year-old singer, with roots in Ghana, reminds us of greats like Donny Hathaway or Ray Charles, although that is where the comparison ends. Kwabs combines old-fashioned R&B, gospel and soul with dark post-dubstep beats and dreamy soundscapes. Also, the singer recalls fellow Londoner James Blake, with whom he recently performed a cover of The Wilhelm Scream. Kwabs has now signed up with a label and colleagues like Joss Stone, Jessie Ware and India.Arie are fans. His first single, Spirit Fade, received thousands of hits on the internet the day it was released. A lovely appetizer for both his debut album that will appear at the beginning of next year and his performance at North Sea Jazz.
