MY ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT

aboutME

William Lawrence is the name that was given to me when I was born, the 1st of June 1994.

I was born in France, however, my parents moved to Nigeria when I was around 1 year old, and moved back to France when I was 4, then we moved again to Africa, in Tchad this time. 

I am African-European because I have many ancestors from West Africa and caucasian ancestors in my family, which gives me the opportunity to speak 3 languages so far.


Wunity is the name I've given myself as an artist.
W represents William and Unity represents the bridge I want to create between you and me.

My heart and mind are dedicated to my family, soul poetry, hip-hop, literature, listening to alternative music, the world of fashion and last but not least, the African culture and Asian culture.

ACT I
PRELUDE

P___

THE SONG :

PRELUDE is my first piece of music, that's why I called it that way. In music, the prelude is "an instrumental piece without any particular form", serving as an introduction.

 

Frederic Chopin's Preludes have had a lot of influence on me, especially Prelude in E-Minor (op.28 # 4), this is one of the reasons why my first song is called this way .

The was recorded in Paris on October 25, 2016.

THE ARTWORK :

I took a picture of myself and sent it to an american artist living in Atlanta, so he could do digital painting.

PRELUDE is a song that speaks about me, this is why I'm the only person on the cover.

The artwork was finished on the day of the release of PRELUDE, on October 13, 2016.

ACT II
AWAKE

PA__

THE SONG :

AWAKE is a song I wrote after a girl opened my eyes back in 2013. She made me feel as if I had always been asleep, that's why I called it that way.

 

The main reason I couldn’t move forward in my life was because I was not awake. Neither the money nor luxury should blur your mind. The first layers of perception can be very deceptive.

 

The song was recorded in Paris on October 25, 2016.

THE ARTWORK :

For this cover I decided to represent an unrequited love scene. Her kiss represents the love she has for me.
The gun represents the hatred she has for me.

This "scene" was taken by a polaroid, but is it a real picture ?

The digital painting was made by the same american artist living in Atlanta.

The artwork was finished the day of the release of AWAKE, on December 24, 2016.

ACT III
INNER DEATH

PAI_

THE SONG :

INNER DEATH is a song I wrote after I experienced the worst feeling ever, the loss of family members. First my uncle Bernard when I was 12, then my grandma on the 11th of February 2014 and my uncle Antoine just after she left, the 10th of May.

 

I released INNER DEATH the fourth anniversary of the death of my grandma, on the 11th of February 2018, that same day, my uncle Paul passed away.

THE ARTWORK :

On this cover, there's me, my uncle Antoine, next to the empty bottle, and my grandma, next to the roses. The writing style of INNER DEATH was inspired by Basquiat

The digital painting was made by an Indian artist living in Bombay.

The background of the cover was made by a Brazilian artist living in Sao-Paulo.

ACT IV
NEGUS

PAIN

THE SONG :

The main purpose of NEGUS is to underline African beauty but also to make a criticism of black men classing themselves as "pro-blacks" while they act like the ones they judge and describe as racist.

 

Negus is the fourth part out of four. P A I N

The song was recorded in London, on April 18th 2018.

 

THE ARTWORK :

I decided to make all the covers of EP HADES in digital painting. For the artwork of my first music, I decided to be alone to better reflect the message of music: talk about me to introduce myself.

I asked a photographer in north London to take a picture of a kid and I. Shortly after that, I sent the picture to the same artist living in Bombay to create a digital painting of us. Finally, I sent DP to the Brazilian artist who added the background.

FINAL ACT
EPILOGUE

EP COVER

THE ARTWORK :

The hidden message behind the first letters of my singles is PAIN.
My first project is 5 tracks EP and it is flawed, however I am still proud of the outcome. It just shows that there's always room for improvement and be better.

I spent years to release these few tracks, during that journey, the most important thing that I learnt was, that life is only made of nothing but of pain when you're alone, no matter if you're rich of poor, beautiful or ugly.


Life = Pain if you're alone, and during the time I've been on my own, yet I've found some beauty behind the pain.
