Positivity with hints of romance is the specialty Kovan Baldwin serves up. And after an eight-year hiatus, you can be sure hot new sounds will be the special tonight.
The Minneapolis, MN local fuses R&B, soul, and pop to create sweet and soothing tracks that go down like honey. Dubbed as the new Trey Songz, Kovan finds influence in legends like Mint Condition, Alexander O’Neal, and, most importantly, Prince. He pens all the distinctive qualities of life, the addictive passion of love, and the arduous ascend of growth, always including the optimistic side of each.
Kovan Baldwin was recently awarded two prestigious Akademia Awards: the 2020 Best R&B Soul Artist of the Year Award and the 2021 Rising Star Award.
The “Bro code” is a silent code of honor amongst male friend groups, has terms and conditions agreed upon by all the bros. All bros will abide by those rules in perpetuity until a girl is involved. Once a girl enters the equation, bro code turns into every man for themselves.
In the “Last Man Standing” music video, Kovan competes with two others for the attention of their shared crush. Of course, Kovan wins her time – or so he thinks. All three men ask to bring her to Kovan’s show tonight, but their questions are left unanswered.
Kovan is on the way to the show while his competitors wait at the venue for their sweetheart. He finds her in the hallway, and their synergy pulls them together. The singer serenades his crush while his rivals count their losses outside the locked door. Suddenly, Kovan wakes up from his blissful dream and realizes that his crush is nowhere in sight. Instead, a disappointing text is centered on his phone, and she lets him know she can’t make it to his show.
The video has a somewhat comedic thread, much like the earlier video of Will Smith (Fresh Prince) which in itself shows a brilliant genre establishing wit.
When a melody elopes with vocal ingenuity, the results can be explosive. ….yet, no eruption can perfectly implore the eardrums to weep ash, unless you’re within the mark of a genius musician, and under the spell of a perfect song. In walks Kovan Baldwin.
Kovan Baldwin, who simply goes by the stage name Kovan, is gearing up to bring integrity back to music’s audible rewards, as this Twin Cities native prepares to deliver R&B to an enterprising destination. With a lethal penmanship for perfectly characterizing the elements of life, love and lore onto our auditory emporium, this talented vocalist is challenging urban music’s subpar existence, by dropping the elements of lust, and promiscuity from his sound, and engaging us with his melodic dewdrops of irrecoverable substance.
Kovan is prepared to not only defeat the game, but redefine its coordinates with his own composition of characterizing vocal art. He’s performed on a multitude of stages and sung in a myriad of festivals, from The Lounge Night Club to the annual Juneteenth Celebration.
