Possessing a cool, conversational tenor, an ability to create lush, aquatic grooves and narrative lyrics that flow with the cadence of a rappers, Detroit’s Andwele Gardner has proven himself as a consistent hit maker since selling self-mastered copies of Rize from the trunk of his car back in 1998. Now, over a decade later, the 32-year-old Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist plans to cement his reputation as a legacy-building soul provider and storyteller with his fourth major-label release, W.ants. W.orld. W.omen (W.W.W).

“W.W.W. is separated into three sections, representing different aspects of myself as an artist,” explains Dwele. The album is a collection of songs combining elements of both R&B and hip hop to express his personal and political views was filtered through the turbulent economy and political climate of today. Dwele continues, “With W.W.W., I wanted to do as Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway did. When you hear their music now, you feel exactly what the climate was at the time, and that’s the job of musicians, to talk about the world’s situation.”
