APW Gets Vulnerable With Heartfelt Debut Track, ‘Love I Never Had’
Manchester-based artist APW shares his new single, ‘Love I Never Had’, delivering a healthy serving of smooth R&B and soul vibes.
The emerging Queer musician is a stage-trained vocalist raised on a diet of Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer and Kate Bush. His artistry is shaped by a love of R&B, soul, disco and pop, and this debut single is an excellent indication of his promise as a singer-songwriter. His powerful vocal range and appreciation for defying genre is evident in this track, and we’re keen to see more of the endless soul we’ve been given a taste of.

This authentic, vulnerable lyricism paired with his impassioned vocal performance creates an irresistible single, solidifying APW as one to watch.
