With a plethora of accomplishments under his belt and the belief that even more fruit is to come, Bowe is looking towards the future! He explains his new style of music as “cool, but positive and light”.

“I feel like sometimes r&b has lost that [real] love…we all fall in love so I wanted to make it to where everybody can find their balance and [it] not just be about sex,” Bowe said.

Though many fans try boxing in his artistry due to his former affiliation with groundbreaking gospel group Maverick City Music, Dante explains that he is focused on his calling and purpose.

“It’s natural to evolve as an artist…it’s a little different [now] because it’s R&B, but it’s still positive music…just about love,” he states.
