Safehouse: David Shabani

By: Laurie Gallardo

The track on today’s Austin Music Minute, “How Can I,” is from the power-grip double album Leopards Leap || Must Not Weep, by Austin/Dallas-based artist David Shabani. The Montreal native dives headfirst, unflinchingly, into deeply personal narratives that connect and resonate on a universal level, elevating his voice through an intertwined texture of R&B, hip-hop/alt. hip-hop and pulsating electronica. There is love, and there is hope, but no small talk and no delusion.

The Montreal native is making a return appearance on the online interactive music film showcase Safehouse. Don’t miss out on his performance and Q&A session at 8 p.m. (Central) Wednesday night, June 17, on the Safehouse YouTube channel. Proceeds from donations benefit the Austin Justice Coalition.
