Blue Note Hawaii ~ Goapele
She is a singer-songwriter, producer, entrepreneur, activist, and designer who has solidified her position amongst the most prolific R&B and soulful visionaries and creators of our time. And now, Goapele is back with her seventh and most introspective album yet, “COLORS.” The seven-track gem, slated for release this summer on the indie artist’s label Skyblaze Recordings, is as sensual as it is unforgettable. There is no denying that her songwriting prowess is heavily on display on this latest album, as well as her uncanny ability to create an atmospheric, mesmerizing world within her music.
Creating soulful art has always been Goapele’s gift, ever since she stepped onto the scene in 2001 with her iconic megahit “Closer,” which changed her life and garnered her lifelong fans. While the industry was saturated with “neo-soul” and “progressive soul” artists at that time, Goapele’s creativity and dynamic artistry made her stand out from the rest. That’s because she makes music that touches the heart and stirs the soul. For Goapele, songwriting and creating music is therapeutic, making her entire catalog authentic and rich.
