Willum Maindo’s “Heaven” is a delicate ballad, contoured with poetic genius and fluent in his uninterrupted thought. Simple production sits nicely underneath Maindo's sultry and smooth vocals, dancing with his melodic runs and floating freely alongside this lyrical idea in motion.
The London-raised artist started his musical journey with a classical guitar his step dad bought from a car boot sale which then evolved into producing at just 14 years old. Six years later, Maindo began to write and sing over his production, with influences from D’Angelo, Kanye West, and Childish Gambino.
Crediting the artistic vision to a feeling, Willum Maindo explains:
"Heaven" is about leaving comfort and safety and risking everything to reach or experience something better.
Exhilarating and magnificent, “Heaven” is a spirited spectator lifting Maindo’s story into the awestruck ears of its listeners.
