Harlem based soul rocker Kwame Binea, front man of Kwame Binea Shakedown, talks about their debut album, “Roots Rock N Universal Love”. The album's featured track “Universal Love” by Jimmy Cliff was produced by Vernon Reid of the group Living Colour, who also co-wrote the album's tune “Love Surreal.” Of the process, Vernon says, “Kwame connected to ‘Universal Love’ immediately. He brings a fresh perspective and a renewed sense of hope to this seldom heard classic.”
Kwame Binea has a charismatic, soulful, and romantic vocal approach to Pop suffused with Rock energy. Though not a political message artist per se, he does not shy away from questioning modern issues. “Roots Rock n Universal Love” is Kwame’s epic answer of how to inspire people while also making them dance.
