Tunage: Dawen Wang

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Just a quick word that R&B / Neo-soul musician and singer Dawen Wang came out with a new EP which is available on iTunes. Check out his MySpace page here and chill out to some of his tunes. I didn't get a chance to listen at the release event, but I dig his tune Ku Li. Here's a little more on Dawen:

Fusing the grooves of Neo-soul with socially conscious lyricism, Dawen Wang explores the American dream. As a singer-songwriter, Dawen hopes his music will further the dialogue on racism and social injustice in American society.

A graduate of Northwestern University, Dawen was classically trained as a vocalist and has been singing and playing piano since he was 6 years old. Emerging on the scene, Dawen has played at venues such as FitzGeralds, The Note, Lilly’s, Bill’s Blues Bar, and the University of Illinois – Chicago. In these recordings all the production (instrumental tracks and programming) is his. In concert, Dawen performs solo with his keyboard.
