The neo-soul singer and songwriter delves into his back catalog while prepping his first new album since 2012

Andwele Gardner, better known simply as Dwele, is a true Detroit player, and a powerful, yet underrated force of nature in the post-Motown landscape. Dwele’s resume boasts of past collaborations with Kanye West, Slum Village, and the likes. But the Valentine’s Day-born singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist abandoned hip-hop long ago. These days his blend of live instruments with a warm, lush voice gives rise to a peace-loving neo-soul vibe. His next album is due out later this summer — his first since releasing 2012’s Greater Than One. In the meantime he’s on the road, revisiting songs such as “I’m Cheatin,’” “I Think I Love You,” and “Find a Way.”

$30-$40. 9:30 p.m. Thurs., Jan. 5. City Winery, 650 North Ave., Ponce City Market. www.citywinery.com/Atlanta 404-WINERY1.
