Dave Okumu releases debut solo project Knopperz & shares Brother video

Today, Dave Okumu - lead singer and guitarist in The Invisible and one of Britain's most sought-after songwriters and producers - has released his debut solo project, Knopperz: https://ffm.to/knopperz 


To mark the release, Okumu has also shared new live video for the track, Brother: https://youtu.be/eaSMpl-pIb4 
The video is taken from a full live performance of Knopperz where Okumu is joined by special guests, including Duval Timothy and his Invisible bandmate Tom Herbert; the performance will be live-streamed tonight and tickets for are available today alongside purchases of the album.


After several years working behind the scenes or with others, Knopperz finds Okumu finally stepping in to the spotlight by himself.  The wholly instrumental solo record - which unites hip-hop, jazz and experimental electronic music - is partly a homage to J Dilla’s classic Donuts and inspired by, and samples elements of, friend and pianist Duval Timothy’s album, Sen Am.  Knopperz is available worldwide today via celebrated independent label, Transgressive Records, whose recent releases include music from Arlo Parks, Damon Albarn and Mykki Blanco.  
As well as his endeavours in Mercury nominated, critically-lauded band The Invisible, Okumu has collaborated with an array of top tier artists, including; Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, St Vincent, Jessie Ware and Adele.  In addition to Knopperz, Okumu is also currently gearing up to release The Solution Is Restless; a forthcoming collaborative album with Joan As Police Woman and the late, great Tony Allen.
