Dante Bowe Releases New Album 'Circles'
After a long three year wait, platinum-selling artist and award-winning songwriter Dante Bowe has released his sophomore album circles. The 13-song collection contains some of Dante’s most personal work to date, exploring themes of gratitude, forgiveness, perseverance, and understanding. From the foot-stomping soul of lead single “joyful” to the R&B influenced “real kind of love” circles embodies everything that makes Dante who he is while setting out to inspire others.
“These are all literal stories about my various family members,” Dante shares. “It gives insight into who we are and what we’ve been through. I hope that by sharing myself within these songs - it can help people to understand that there’s somebody out there who’s going through the same things. We all have our moments of struggle and our moments of success. But family is what brings it together. I’m able to stand here today on their shoulders, and I am grateful for their experiences, which have made me a better man.”
On circles, Dante reflects on time spent learning and appreciating his own roots, honoring the people and experiences that have formed him. Throughout the album, Dante effortlessly weaves what he learned about his family’s determination and resolve with his own turbulent experiences in life, creating a musical and lyrical fabric of self-discovery, renewal, and just plain old groove. Dante first introduced circles to the world with a smooth, up-tempo ode to seizing the day - check out the music video for “joyful” above.
