Zimbabwe-born artist KWAYE recently released his debut SOLAR EP.
The EP features his previous hits ‘Cool Kids’ and ‘Little Ones’ as well as the latest single, ‘Sweetest Life,’ which debuted as Zane Lowe’s World Record premiere on Beats 1.
The London-raised artist was discovered in the back of an Uber while studying abroad at UCLA, taking classes in African-American studies and the music industry.
A student of not only the Zimbabwean music his family brought with them to England, but neosoul icons like D'Angelo and John Legend and funky boundary-pushers like Thundercat - not to mention unexpected influences like Tracy Chapman and the Eagles - KWAYE uses flourishes of pop and classic house music to juice up a breezy, funky version of modern soul miles apart from dour alt-R&B.
