A little more than a month outside the release date of her Break Of Dawn album, the lovely Goapele provides insight into her thought process and inspirations during a recent sit-down with Essence.com’s Coffee Talk series. She mentions the music is an artistic representation of what the past few years of her life has molded and that the new landscape of music is both exciting and a reflection of the times. What’s interesting is what she credits as two crucial components to her music – the soul vibes she was raised on and the hard hitting production often associated with Hip-Hop. Somehow, someway, Goapele says she makes it work on her new album.
And as a fan of her previous work, I’m not one to doubt her.
