The Hottest New Female Artist from Detroit 2018
Who’s The Hot New Female Artist from Detroit? We can all agree that Kash Doll, Taij B, Dej Loaf, Molly Brazy, Neisha Neshae, La’Britney and more has been doing things to bring attention to the female artist scene in Detroit. But there’s a new one on the rise, this one gives me chills though, (she’s different) VERY DIFFERENT!!!! Unlike anything I’ve ever seen, heard or felt since Michael Jackson was alive as King! To understand my fascination of this female, I have to first tell you the STORY OF HOW I DISCOVERED THIS FEMALE ICON NEW RECORDING ARTIST THEY CALL “KNOBELE'”.
The first encounter with this entity, and I say entity because I haven’t seen or heard this person yet. But I did see a graffiti tag. On the wall, it just read “I’m Knobele’, :-)” I thought it was interesting, with a little smiley face attached to the tag. I thought nothing of it, and went on about my day.
So what does this have to do with “The Hottest New Female Artist from Detroit 2018?” Just keep on reading. 🙂
A month later, I see this tag again, “I’m Knobele, :-)”…….then I thought to myself, “Deja vu”. Thought not much of it and went on about my day.
Then one hot day I decided to hang out with my female partner and we stopped at Mickey D’s to use the restroom for an emergency, the fries was smelling crazy, so I grabbed a small bag, ate it and walked out, I finished the fries before I left and went to throw away the bag and what I saw on the top of the can lid was a sticker, low and behold guess what it read “I’m Knobele'” no smiley face, but it was a sticker. I stopped in my tracks, with a confused type look on my face, I was thinking to myself confusingly…”I seen this before”. I asked my partner “Have you ever heard of Knobele’? She said what is it? I replied “I don’t know”, then I said “but it has to be a person, because I keep seeing the word, “I’m” in front of the name so I assume it’s a person. My partner replies, “sounds familiar” then shrugs. I threw away my fries and we headed out.
3 months later I went to The Bull Frog in Michigan to check out some local male and female rap artists talent. Detroit has come up, and has really polished up as far as having a much more professional sound. I was very impressed, but had to leave early as to complete some work at the studio. As I’m headed to the car I noticed 6 very attractive females passing out small flyers outside of the Bull Frog. What I found interesting is the fact that they were all dressed alike. They all had vixen model bodies…lol, and they all had on these very large wide brimmed Fedora hats covering their faces, so all you saw was the banging bodies in those body suits and the hats. It was fun and interesting to look at, because let’s just face it, who goes there anymore today, right? Now check this, they all were in sync, they all walked simultaneously to there cars and pulls off. I was thinking, “OK, that was interesting”. As I walks over to my car I’m noticing flyers all thrown about and spread out on the side walk, I walks to open my door to see one of the flyers stuck in my window near my door handle. I picks it up and on it was a Mardi Gras eye mask and a pair of Red Bottom Louboutins, but the flyer said nothing, no time, place, date, no club name, nothing, just the image, I found that peculiar, so before tossing it I turned it around, guess what words I saw? “I’m Knobele, wink, wink”. I said “Oh Hell Naw!!!”…lol…..
So you’re probably thinking what I’m thinking at this point, or a million other thoughts as well. I was fascinated! I was excited, and became very anxious about this Knobele’, because obviously, I want to know what the hell is this “Knobele'” thing or person or SOMETHING!!! I said to my self, these people or entity are either some advanced minded marketing gurus from another realm, or a bunch of psychopaths preparing us for some crazy ish to pop off.
So of course at this point, this person had me. I’m thinking to myself, obviously this person is a somebody, someone or something important. So I did what any other like minded millennial would do, I googled “Knobele”. And what I found was interested, the clues started to come together. But what was more fascinating to me is the fact that somehow, this person made me go out on a hunt, and not the other way around, well in a way I guess, but I still was more driven to seek them out because of the fascinating way they got into my subconscious.
First thing I saw was a Youtube video, entitled: “I’m Knobele”. I sat back in my studio chair like, “OMG!” I just sat there for like 7 minutes. Just staring. Thinking to myself, all this time, all this promotion, all that marketing got me right here at this very moment, what on earth can I expect to hear? Truth be told, I did not want to listen. I was so impressed with the campaign, I did not want to ruin the thrill of the chase. See I knew that if I listened to this song or watched a video and this “Knobele” did not deliver, then that would ruin EVERYTHING! So I was very hesitant. But of course, you know that curiosity always kills the cat, so, “click”, I clicked on the link, then “click” again, I clicked the youtube play button.
The video started.
But I heard nothing. I figured, it must be a delay, I still heard nothing, I thought to myself, maybe i didn’t hit play, or the computer locked up, so I went to hit play again, but noticed the video cursor play indicator was moving, I also noticed the timer was counting, at this point it was at 22 seconds. So I’m thinking to myself, WTF? So I reached to turn it off and I heard a sigh. My eyebrows frowned because now I’m not only confused, but a bit baffled. I’m thinking to myself, is this person breathing? I wanted to click stop, but something inside of me was locked, now I want to know “whats really really going on around here???” So I sat and just listened to the silence.
I slowly sat back in my chair. I then smiled. I said to myself with a subtle inside laughter “they’re good”, heh heh, okay they got me, they good…
Then unexpectedly I hear a females voice sigh, as if she was stressing, or crying or something, but it was an “oh well” sigh. Then for the first time in months I heard her voice. She said “I’m Knobele”.
Then I heard a very beautiful breathtaking acoustic guitar playing a chord progression I did not even know could exist. It had my mind, heart, soul and body in a trance. The chord progressions of the guitar melody resonated through my core as if it was the meaning of life. As if the progressions came from an unearthly entity…lol….I mean it was mesmerizing.
Knobele’s voice was traditional, decent, not over the top, but had a very down to earth girl next door vibe, but what captured my heart was not so much the sound of her voice, because there is many beautiful voice sounding artists, but it was literally her way with words. She knew exactly what to say that had me hypnotized and mesmerized. It resonated with my soul, that same way Stevie Wonder’s content resonated with the souls of back then. Something I have not felt in music for a very very long time. I understand that a lot of people can sing, but the right words can end a war.
When I listened to her sing, she said things that only my core could relate too, she broke through the protective custody of my ego. My ego did not understand the language of Knobele, only my core. This song was the best song I’ve heard in all my life. From that exact moment I became a lifetime loyal fan.
Now, here is the very sad update. The next day I went to listen to Knobele, and the song was gone. The site was gone, The page was gone. Once again, I said to myself, WTF is going on?
I’m currently looking for Knobele. A female artist that right now I consider to be the next best top female artist from Detroit. If you hear what I’ve heard, I’m sure you’d feel the same.
I don’t know or understand whats going on with Knobele’, but I do know that I’m sold, and I will do all I can to keep you in the loop of our very own new and upcoming female recording artist from Detroit, Knobele’.
