Excitingly gifted South London’s future-soul man Kwabs – full name Kwabena Sarkodee Adjepong – releases his debut 12-track LP titled ‘Love + War’, on 11 Sept through Atlantic Records. Taken from the impressively crafted & delivered debut album, here’s ‘My Own’.

Speaking about his debut album, Kwabs says: “I always had it in my mind that when I wrote my album, I’d write music I could sing from a mountain top.”

On his well documented life journey – “From growing up in social care to discovering his Ghanaian family roots to winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music” – he reveals: “My story’s quite mixed up…

And my influences are quite mixed up because of my background. Whenever I try to explain that to people, they find me hard to categorise because they find it unfamiliar. I question it sometimes – should I be something more familiar to people? But I like it, I like being the product of several different weird parts.”Kwabs15KWABS UK OCTOBER HEADLINE SHOWS
