New York City-based roots rock songwriter/singer Kwame Binea who fronts the Kwame Binea Shakedown has announced the worldwide digital release of their debut single, “Let Go,” for Tuesday, April 7, 2015 via CDbaby.com and all their major digital distribution partners including iTunes and Amazon.com. Binea will be celebrating the single and video release with a performance at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on Friday, April 3, 2015. The event will be followed by a sneak preview of the “Let Go” post after-party at the venue.
“Let Go” is 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. It was co-written and produced by Kwame Binea and guitarist Justin Wilcox for Binea’s indie imprint, Pelopos Entertainment Group. The song also features the rest of the Shakedown band, drummer Medley Shabazz, guitarist Art Vanterpool, bassist Phil Bass, Daron Wright on keyboards, Kengo Yamada on saxophone and Brian Varneke on trumpet. The “Let Go” video was culled from a Kwame Binea Shakedown live performance at the Brooklyn Bowl earlier in 2015.
