They say a man walks a long road before finding his path. Kwame Binea has been paving his way through the art of music. Born Nana Kwame Biney Asiedu Agyemfra in West London to a single Ghanaian mother, he soon moved to Ghana to live with his grandparents, where music became his passion. He was influenced by the rhythms of traditional Ghanaian and West African music as well as Reggae, Folk, and American Soul and Blues.
Kwame Binea's electrifying live performances with the solid musicianship of his band, the 'Uptown Shakedown,' built a following as diverse as New York City. His fans were able to watch him perform all over iconic New York City music venues including Brooklyn Bowl, Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, Sullivan Hall, The Bitter End, Kenny’s Castaway and their Summer Residency at Arlene’s Grocery as well as shows across the East Coast.
Kwame, the singer/songwriter, has made his home in Harlem, New York where he continues to spread the message of peace, love and music. His strength in music has been shaped by the diversity of cultures he has experienced, and his passion and intensity of spreading positivity through Music are symbols of who Kwame Binea is.
“My music is organic,” says Kwame, “it’s about life, love and struggle, but it’s danceable. We make music that moves you and that makes you move.”
His latest release is "Let Go", a rock/funk/soul song that lyrically invokes and offers an inspired message that the best way to overcome a spurned lover or lingering adversity is to think positive, know when it's time to move on and just let go. Kwame is currently putting the finishing touches on his first solo EP, Rock & Roll Shakedown.
