Independent (release date: February 16, 2020)
By Bob Marovich
From North-West London, England, indie gospel artist Ashy Akakpo tests industry waters with her debut single, “Without Condition.”
Understated and focused wholly on lyrics about God’s unconditional love, “Without Condition” introduces a young woman who sounds for all the world like an emerging Christian version of Alicia Keys. Don’t think so? Check out the harmony section at the single’s end and get back with me.
It’s like we are spying on a late night solo happening on a half-lit church altar. Yes, less is more.
