Emerging U.K. Artist BERWYN Is on a "Path to Satisfaction” for His Latest Rap-Soul Record

Trinidad-born and Romford-raised rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer, BERWYN, has had a busy couple of years. Since his 2020-released project DEMOTAPE/VEGA, the musician has gone on to grab a top-three spot in the BBC’s Sound Of poll, while also grabbing a Mercury Prize shortlist and an NME Award.

And while the artist is constantly seeking musical inspiration from his relationship with Trinidad — listen to records such as “Money Comes and Money Goes” for proof of that — and his struggles with visa issues that have shadowed him since the age of nine, BERWYN has now gone back home for his introspective new single, “Path to Satisfaction.”

Performing over a lightly-gliding guitar chord instrumental, BERWYN reminisces on traditional smoked herring, the sound of Trinidad’s local bird songs, and the classic pastime of “pitching marbles.” And while the latter is a big part of Berwyn’s influence, this latest single explores how his priorities have changed, and how his music success is helping himself and those around him. Speaking about his new single, BERWYN said: 

“I’ve now learned that a man can have two homes and his body will know the difference. “Path to Satisfaction” recognizes the change that comes with growth. It acknowledges the path towards realizing my identity and anticipates the future of BERWYN.”
