Who exactly is the man behind this eclectic magic? Who is the man who sells out the legendary venues like The Jazz Café in London and both Yoshiʼs in Oakland and San Francisco for several consecutive nights? Well Dweleʼs story is familiar. A young yet sophisticated man, named Andwele Gardner who hails from the legendary music mecca of Detroit, lives a life in song. From soul stirring melodies composed on piano keys, he writes poignant music, performs with natural grace and captivates with his clear, silky tone.

Dwele is a Multi Grammy Award nominated, songwriter, producer, multi instrument musician and vocalist carrying on a Motown-inspired tradition instilled in another era. Yet he has cultivated his own spirited road with five critically acclaimed albums “Subject”, “Some Kinda”, “Sketches Of A Man”, “W.ants W.orld W.omen” and “Greater Than One” behind him. His story in sounds resonates with genuine soul and heʼs in full stride in the first chapter of his musical legacy. 


He was brought up in a highly musical family that was tragically pared down to his mother and younger brother, once his father was gunned down outside their home. Dwele was only 10. “The loss of my Father really inspired my creative side,” he recalls. “By getting into music, it provided me with a way to cope with his death.” Dweleʼs music impresses with maturity beyond his years. He captures the rawness of inner city blues with hip-hop nuances that speak to his generation and beyond. His ear was shaped by Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye and Miles Davis, which his family played regularly in their home. What is most compelling about his work is itʼs timeless nature and the fact that he remains loyal to his foundation. 

With multiple chart-topping collaborations with rap icon Kanye West, Common, Drake, Wale & many others, he has blazed a trail for this generationʼs newfound Soul/ R&B era. Although being the humble young man that he is, Dwele says “...No matter how many Grammy Nominations that I receive, Iʼve always repped Detroit to the best of my abilities. That feeling is like exhaling, to be home while riding in the car upon my return. I see the sights and Iʼm back,” he muses. “When I sit down at the keyboard, as soon as I get home, the material just flows out.” Dwele has toured around the globe with sell-out crowds in his wake and still seems to mystify his audience, which makes them eagerly anticipate what his next move will be. Deemed as  one of the industry's "Big R&B, Best Kept Secrets" by media queen Wendy Williams, thereʼs no doubt he has surpassed the benchmark of just getting a "Hit Record" but more so a "Hit Career.”
