As social being its tantamount we assess our procedures or activities at the end of each task or within when there’s a time for break, we need to recheck our moves and actions if its for the best result we yearn for
Tagging his debut album “Before We Fall Asleep”, Johnny Drille is looking to take his music to hearts across the social globe.
In his words; “Hey family! Very excited my first ever album is finally out. There is something in there for everyone. I put my everything into this project for YOU“.
His army of devoted followers is as loyal as you will find anywhere. It’s easy to see why; Beyond his rare connection with his fans, Johnny is a man of many talents – an award-winning producer, writer and sound designer. He’s also a gifted performer; the best evidence – two sold-out editions of his tour series, “Johnny’s Room Live” and multiple performances around Africa and Europe.
Songs like “Papa” and “Wait For Me” are cult favourites, while “Count on You” and “Halleluyah” have amassed millions of streams. There’s also a growing demand for Johnny Drille around the continent, shown by tens of thousands of online followers and marquee shows in Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda.
In 2020, Johnny Drille hinted at a new, more risque direction with the release of the retro-inspired “Something Better”.
Anchored by impeccable songwriting across sound beds replete with traditional, neo-classical and alté inflections, Before We Fall Asleep is an absorbing excursion into Johnny Drille’s richly textured cosmos. Traversing multiple sonic worlds, the Afro-R&B “Ludo” gels with the Afropop of “Ova”, while the pensive acoustics of “BEFORE I LET GO” precede the collision of hip-hop undertones on “Lost In The Rhythm” and the ambient pop of “CLOCKS”
