Kwame Binea Shakedown


New York

Kwame Binea is a self-proclaimed rocker to the core, but he has peppered his own brand of “Roots Rock” which embodies his fertile and cultural diverse personal saga: growing up in West London (his birth place) and his native origins in Ghana, moving later to Cherry Hill, NJ as a teenager before setting up home in New York City to unearth his artistic aspirations as a burgeoning singer/songwriter.

“Mix Rock and Roll with silky, soul-screaming blues with folk, and you get Kwame Binea,” says The Apollo Theater. “My music is organic,” says Kwame, “it embodies life, love, and struggles. I’m driven by my mantra of Peace, Love, & Positivity, so that propels and drives the messages for most of my lyrical content. It’s also party music and danceable, so if our music moves you and makes you move, that’s a great night,” he added.

Kwame and the band finished their debut LP in early 2017. The album includes a stellar collaboration with Grammy award winning Guitarist/Producer, Vernon Reid.
