Rockingham, North Carolina native, Grammy award-winning multi-platinum-selling soulful singer Dante Bowe recently released his debut self-titled album “Dante Bowe.”

The project is packed with soul and an intersection of Gospel and R&B that reflect emotions and relatable experiences.  Bowe’s passion and depth of his sound fill the project as we see him blaze his own lane as he’s quickly rising to the top of the music industry.

There are so many amazing gems and uplighting songs on this album, that it was difficult to pick favorites.

His songwriting abilities speak for themselves and are only matched by the Southern depth of his vocals and lyricism. Take a listen for yourself.

During an exclusive interview with ThisIsRnB’s Kadeja, Dante Bowe discussed his musical roots, journey, and the meaning behind his debut self-titled album”Dante Bowe.” Bowe wrote “Breaking All OF My Rules” in thirty minutes.   Bowe is already working on his next album and gave us a rundown of personal hopeful collaborations. It was an inspiring and interesting conversation about transitioning from being a solo artist to joining a group (Maverick City Music) and returning to being a solo artist. Bowe shared the unique differences between the two.

Speaking about the album, Bowe shares, “This album is very unique in nature because I left the group Maverick City, finished out my deal with Bethel and started this label called “TRUE Music” the brainchild of Bowe, as well as Artist Relations maven Sabrina Harrison, in conjunction with famed producer Jon-Jon Traxx, known for producing a string of hits, including “Déjà Vu” by Beyoncé. “Jon-Jon did my first song ever after I signed my record deal,” Bowe adds, “and so we’ve kind of circled back as a full circle moment.”

With a warm genuine spirit and down-to-earth vibe, raspy vocals, and producer of good music, Bowe is an artist worth watching and keeping on your radar.

Bowe says,  “I just want to help the world,” he humbly advises, “and bring the soundtrack to people’s lives.”

About Dante Bowe:

Born and raised in Rockingham, North Carolina, Dante’s childhood was pretty simple and pretty Southern. “I’m a country boy at heart, so I don’t really feel like I missed out on anything,” he explains. Music entered his life early, as he came from a family of musicians, and as a child was already propped up on a cinder block to perform impromptu concerts for his grandparents. His mother listened to the Motown greats with modern R&B, while his father listened to Hip-Hop. His grandparents were enmeshed in Gospel and Christian music at their church, so it wasn’t long before Dante was singing there as well.

With a modest $10,000, he funded his 2017 debut album Son of a Father, which impressively peaked at Number 21 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart through his independent notoriety alone.

He later inked a deal with Bethel Music and was hard at work on his follow-up project Circles. All the while, he was on a collaboration spree, having joined Maverick City Music and dropped their GMA Dove Award-nominated track “Promises” in 2020. Dante took home his own Dove Award in 2021, for the lead single off Circles, the chart-topping Grammy-nominated “Joyful.” Circles reached the Number 7 spot on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and reached Number One in both CCM and Gospel radio, making him the Top New Gospel Artist of 2021. He continued his momentum with Maverick City Music, as they started collaborating collectively with other ministries. Their project Old Church Basement with Elevation Worship was monumental, as it earned them a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Album the following year—with Dante making history as the first artist to have the most simultaneous Grammy nominations across both Christian and Gospel genres.
