KwabsSouth London born and raised soul singer Kwabs (aka Kwabena Adjepong) "possesses a voice to be reckoned with" (BBC) and his soulful take on 'synth&B' has seen him christened "the new Seal" by The Guardian. The Telegraph goes as far as saying, "his earth-shattering baritone simply has no equal." He won a coveted place to study at the Royal Academy of Music but his music career really took off after a YouTube cover of James Blake's The Wilhelm Scream came to the attention of Atlantic Records. Having recently sold out Camden's KOKO, bagged a Number 1 record and now with this Somerset House Summer Series concert, Kwabs is fast becoming one of 2015's breakout acts.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
