"New Twin Cities Sound"

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There’s no doubt that the Twin Cities has a vibrant music scene. But one rising star’s music is being called the “new Twin Cities” sound.

He’s got the ambition and the drive — some say he possess the talent to be the next big artist to come out of Minnesota.

Kovan Baldwin wants to capitalize on being from the Twin Cities. He grew up listening to the “Minneapolis Sound.”

“Mint Condition, I love Mint Condition,” he said.

From Mint Condition to Alexander ONeal, Morris Day and the Time to Prince, this young artist hopes to follow in their footsteps.

Kovan is quick to point out, his music is different from what you may hear on the radio today.

“I bring a lot of positivity into my lyrics I don’t center around sex or drugs or anything like that. I cater to my audience and cater to the youth as well,” Baldwin said.

His positive lyrics, attitude and lifestyle is the end result of how he was raised.

“Spirituality really plays a big part in my life,” he said.

Spiritual and the kid’s got soul.

“I grew up listening to The Temptations, Michael Jackson, Prince also Luther Vandross and Marvin Gaye — soulful music, I just love it,” he said.

Kovan hopes both young and old listen to his music. He hopes the positve lyrics educates as well as entertains.

“I hope this takes me to the top,” he said. “My goal is to just inspire young people in general because a lot of times today in music they are really putting a lot of negativity in the lyrics and I really want folks to focus on the message.”

Kovan graduated from Augsburg College, since then he has performed all over the Twin Cities. He evened opened for Alexander O’Neal.

His single “Call Me” debuted on FM channel and is currently one of the channel’s most requested songs.

Let Me See YA Do It

When a melody elopes with vocal ingenuity, the results can be explosive.

…...yet, no eruption can perfectly implore the eardrums to weep ash, unless you’re within the mark of a
genius musician, and under the spell of a perfect song.

In walks Kovan Baldwin.

“Call Me.” A summons, an invitation; and the lead single off of the R&B; singer/songwriter’s highly anticapated album
entitled Call Me, set for release in 2013.

The name of the single in itself, suggests that you vocally express your accord for this jubilant sound. But
in packing more definition to this dose of candid art, the song truly breathes a motive of the singers intent
on imparting a windstorm of poetic prose over the music industries lack-luster canvas.

Earnest and eruditely apt, Kovan Baldwin, who simply goes by the stage name Kovan, is gearing up to
bring integrity back to music’s audible rewards, as this Twin Cities native prepares to deliver R&B; to an
enterprising destination.

With a lethal penmanship for perfectly characterizing the elements of life, love and lore onto our auditory
emporium, this talented vocalist is challenging urban music’s subpar existence, by dropping the elements
of lust, and promiscuity from his sound, and engaging us with his melodic dewdrops of irrecoverable
He’s performed on a multitude of stages and sung in a myriad of festivals, from The Lounge Night Club to
the annual Juneteenth Celebration.

Featured in the Source Magazine in July 2010 for his hit song “Let Me See You Do It,” and gearing up to
be a household superstar, this talented musician is only at the start of his journey through sound, but as time
progresses his efforts will unleash to him a red carpet welcome. Kovan also has been nominated for a Twin
Cities Hip Hop Award for Best Male R&B; for the past year in 2011.

Be on the lookout for a true shooting star.
