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 released their debut LP (Roots Rock N Universal Love) in the summer of 2017. The Album includes a stellar collaboration with Grammy award winning Guitarist/Producer Vernon Reid, the title song “ Universal Love” produced by Reid and written by Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff. Elmore Magazine writes ” Roots Rockin Universal Love is a delightful 40-minute jolt of caffeine for the ears, from a band ready to laugh and inspire in addition to bringing the party. Its the kind that lift we can all use more of these days”. Look out for Kwame and the guys on the Universal Love Tour coming to a city near you.



The Vivien Leigh Documentary (VLD) was born out of the pairing of a soulful singer, Hadassah Wilson with a free improv band, comprised of Scott Bookman and Ron Leik on guitars, Jackie Hynes on bass, and Matt Blank on drums. Together, they explore the hallmark sounds of rock, jazz, soul and blues, creating original music that transcends the expectations of these genres, paired with heartfelt lyrics culled from life and love. The emotion may be raw, but their performances reveal the bandmates’ sense of humor and retain the infectious energy of their improv roots.
