Goapele’s 2001 self-published debut album Closer sold more than 5,000 units and eventually entered the Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop albums, peaking at #63. From that impressive start, the Neo-Soul singer has continued to both surprise and excel with five albums and cameos with Oakland Hip-Hop legends The Heiroglyphics, and Freestyle Fellowship alum, Aceyalone. The daughter of an Irish activist and South African exile, Goapele’s music is rooted in social change and transformation, which accounts for her ability to both seduce and subvert, sometimes in the same song. Her versatility has come with mixed blessings. Though beloved by the underground, her rejection of commercializing her work has unfairly obscured her contributions to the mainstream. After 18 years, with such a catalog and fan-base, it really doesn’t matter. Catch up.
