Uwade is a Nigerian-American artist born in Nigeria and raised in North Carolina. She does some vocals on the Fleet Foxes song “Shore”, but she has only recently released a few singles of her own. She’s only 21 and recently graduated from Columbia. She wrote her newest single, “Do You See the Light Around Me” during her final semester. It has been released as part of the single series that Sylvan Esso’s record label is doing. It was produced by fellow North Carolinian, Brad Cook. The song is about having a crush and thinking about how they might see you in return. I dig it. Hope you do too.
