Born and raised in Accra, Ghana, music has always been an important part of Mawule’s life. As a child he was active in gospel choirs which led to a refined ear for melody and harmony that continues to inform his writing today. Following his family’s move to the United States, and inspired by legendary singers such as Al Green and John Legend, Mawule self produced his first album, ‘Live Ma Dream’ under the artist name Thade.
Although the album was well-received, Mawule decided to put his musical career on hold to focus on his studies at Colorado State University (CSU). This decision was short-lived though as Mawule soon realized that life without music was not an option. Returning to his music with renewed vigor, Mawule asked his father to help him come up with a name that would signify his musical rebirth and the importance of his own spirituality. The two settled on Mawule, which means “Only God Knows” to the Ewe tribe of his native Ghana.
