Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the debut release on the label for vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, rapper, painter, carpenter, raconteur and one of the most talented and unique artists you're likely to encounter – Gideon Conn. I Just Don't Know You Very Well isthe first single to be taken from his forthcoming third album, Hip Hop Original (released November 20th) and features erstwhile Resonator vocalist Kassia Zermon AKA Bunty on a tale of everyday life, love and relationships delivered in Gideon's unique style.
Hailing from Manchester, England, Gideon Conn is something of a one-off. His charming energy, quick wit and unique vocal often stun, and sometimes confuse, but in the end, audiences and listeners inevitably fall in love with this enigmatic, incomparable troubadour's warmth and showmanship.
As much influenced by Joan as Policewoman and Simon & Garfunkle as by Aretha and Stevie or Mos Def and Talib Kweli, Gideon's eclectic take on hip hop music is unparalleled with its soulful, humorous edge and intricate, inventive lyricism.
Having already garnered fans as diverse as Guy Garvey, Tom Robinson and Shaun Keaveney on BBC 6Music, Rob da Bank (Bestival) and John Kennedy (XFM) the next stage in Gideon's story is already eagerly anticipated by radio, press, festival goers and the army of fans he's garnered over the years.
