#NewMusic: Kawan DeBose Displays Fear Beautifully on ‘Hello’

In 2 minutes and 50 seconds with keys, guitar, sax, drums and bass, Kawan DeBose expresses the feeling of longing for someone in particular in his new song, “Hello.”

While the fear that prevents people from doing certain things is typically seen as bad, DeBose encapsulates that uneasy internal feeling regarding going after a person a listener may want.

“We walk closely down a road, Not going too fast nor too slow/ Hoping you’d acknowledge me but, You just walk by and there’s no greeting/ And I’ve tried to speak, but fear just won’t let me/ Won’t you be bold And say hello”

“Hello” is a different tone from his previous single, “WKND,” which shows the diversity he possesses.

Not only is he a musician, but an actor as well. 

DeBose played a principal part in the forthcoming film, “Amsterdam,” which stars Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Chris Rock and others.
