Jack Dawkins releases signature-sounding new single "Becoming"
Jack Dawkins hails from Boulder, Colorado, but his sound reaches globally. His love of storytelling shines through in his writing and within his recording, and his music pays homage to many different genres and inspirations.
Speaking about this, he reveals: “I’m in Boulder now but originally grew up outside of New York City, which is where a lot of my musical influence comes from - Boom Bap is a sound that I cannot quit. I did my undergraduate studies at Harvard before going into restaurants, which would be the first of many non-traditional pivots that I would make in my life. The time in restaurants is relevant because it framed my thinking into that of experience - I want to know what it feels like to listen to my music. Where is the listener physically? Emotionally? In life?”
His signature sound can be heard on his latest release "Becoming." The track features atmospheric synths, hard-hitting drums and personality-soaked backing vocals. His bars are emotional and well-penned, smashing through the mix. It's clear that Jack Dawkins isn't your average rapper, he's a tried and tested wordsmith who's sure to immerse you within his lyricism.
Speaking further about the track, he shares: “This project was a true mind-meld between me and my producer, Senz. Colorado has a HUGE electronic and bass music scene, where Senz does most of his work. He brought the soundscape, and I crafted the lyrics to fit into this new world. The result feels less like a mashup or hybrid and more like a new genre. We're just beginning to explore the union, but if this is where it starts, I can't WAIT to see where it goes.”
With an irresistible live show, infectious music and important messages, Jack Dawkins is an act not miss.
