Born and based in Detroit, Andwele ‘Dwele’ Gardner’s debut album, Subject (2003), fueled by the hit single "Find A Way," sold over 250,000 copies, based mainly on the strong, word-of-mouth buzz generated from Dwele’s dynamic live shows and cool demeanor. The new album, SOME KINDA., will arrive in U.K.record shops on October 10th.
"I’m really excited to finish the new album and, more importantly, get back in front of the people," says Dwele. "It will be great to finally share new material that I’ve been working on for several months. I think people will really see my growth as a songwriter and musician."
SOME KINDA takes his creativity to the next level, while still giving fans his unique brand of soul music – a heady mix of traditional and modern R&B, with strong influences from hip-hop and jazz. Dwele himself produced nine tracks on the new record; other album producers include Mike City, Jay Dilla (Slum Village) and G-1 (R. Kelly, Raphael Saadiq).
