goapele dreamseeker

Oakland’s own Goapele returns with a 10-track EP Dreamseeker, featuring BJ The Chicago Kid.

Goapele as a vocal enchantress is similar to Erykah Badu in that way. For Bay Area listeners, she’s the woman who created a timeless anthem with “Closer” some sixteen years ago. Gone are the locks that hung well near her navel but she never lost her pen, or penchant for creating soothing, emotional ballads that could turn a house upside down. Dreamseeker comes three years after her Strong As Glass project and only has one notable feature, BJ The Chicago Kid. He appears on the smoldering fan favorite, “Stay” which you can hear below.

Over the course of its 10 tracks, Dreamseeker dances with subjects closer to home. Self-worth, social consciousness, motherhood and self-love all play varying factors throughout its duration and you can take it all in for yourself below via Spotify.
