SHAKESPEARE! are  a singing/songwriting duo (Tradessa Willis and Trevon Trapper) from Los Angeles. We first got to really appreciate them via their input on Stokley’s ‘Sankofa’ album. They featured on the track ‘Clouds’ (see recent article).

The duo will be performing at Pizza Express’ Holborn, London outlet on  14th May and consequently their team are promoting two great tracks from them. They are ‘Circles’ and ‘Dirty White Shoes’.

‘Circles’ is a perfect summation of where Shakespeare! are at. It’s a melodic track that builds and builds, combining modern  R&B aesthetics with warm, soulful vibes. There’s a definite whiff of ‘D’Angelo about this one! ‘Dirty White Shoes’ (in its SdoT mix) is a tougher neo-soul groove that features tight beats and crisp  vocals – contemporary soul/R&B at its best.

SHAKESPEARE! ‘Circles’ and ‘Dirty White Shoes’ out now via Bluraffe Ent group. Live in London 14th May @ Pizza Express Holborn.
