Tawiah (London) On The Main Ingredient June 18th!

Tawiah, who’s music has made regular appearances on this site and my radio show going back to 2010 is in town from London for some shows (see below) and she is also going to stop by The Main Ingredient for a chat late Monday night.

There is a slightly overzealous sampling of her songs below. I wanted to include something from Jodi’s Bedroom, her new FREEdom Drop EP, and one of the 4 songs on Eric Lau’s new album, One of Many, that she is featured on. His album comes out Tuesday on Kilawatt Music.

About Tawiah:

Tawiah’s voice has been discovered and admired by the likes of upper echelon artist like Mark Ronson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Cee Lo Green, The Guillemots and Gilles Peterson. A personal request by Mark Ronson led her to be the front woman and voice of his touring band on his 2007 worldwide tour. She lent her vocals to songs made famous by Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, and Mary J. Blige.

In 2008, Tawiah independently released her debut EP ‘In Jodi’s Bedroom’ which quickly became a cult favorite on Britain’s underground music scene, ultimately winning her Gilles Peterson’s Radio 1 Worldwide Award for Best Newcomer. Her song “Watch Out” was subsequently voted the 2nd best song of the year by his station. “Every Step”, the second single from her self released EP, went on to make iTunes single of the week.

She went on to feature on Cee Lo Green’s official remix for “I Want You” and filmed a documentary with Mark Ronson and Guy Chambers for the BBC. Wale tapped her to release a remake of the Method Man featuring Mary J Blige hit “All I Need”. She later went on to perform live with Mark Ronson and Erykah Badu capping off an amazing early career start.

Her upcoming release, Freedom Drop, is clearly more than just a mixtape. Collaborating again with Jodi Milliner, with production and features from Sam Beste of Hejira, Ghana hip-hop sensation Wanlov and vocal talent Muhsinah (The Weekend, N.E.R.D, Common), it is a melodic reflection of the past few years of Tawiah’s career. It is worldly and soulful. Not only a representation of her life but a representation of the listeners and fans that have grown to appreciate her music. Be prepared to feel, think and reflect.
