Artist of the Week: Mawule USL September 11, 2016 Artist of the Week, USL Stories Mawule’s music parallels the everyday occurrences many of us face. His passion for relationship dynamics shines through his music, and even through his catchy upbeat songs, he touches on some very real topics. He pulls together his personal life and music life into an empowering, positive message that makes his music enjoyable to listen to. My premise for the Chosen LP was to encourage fans to reflect on their unique position as a self-determining agent responsible for the authenticity of his or her choices. I am a reflective person, always thinking about my impact in the world, the choices I make, and how each and every life experience continues to layout my blueprint on this world. With this in mind, I wanted to release a collection of records that would give listeners insight into who I am and the values for which I stand. Every song on my Chosen LP will have a personal message to which listeners can easily relate. My life experiences and the interaction of my intersecting identities shaped the songs I wrote and selected for this album. Nina Simone once said, “An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times”. This very statement reflects what I try to accomplish with Chosen. Chosen is a reflection. Chosen is about empowerment. Chosen is my responsibility.
