Tywan M. Harris, rapper/songwriter, and entrepreneur, known as Cashmere, is proud to announce the release of "Take Me Away", the debut album by the Brooklyn rap messenger, on December 21, 2010.
Cashmere unveils his most inner thoughts and intimate feelings about the life-alerting events that led to the making of "Take Me Away", which wasn’t an easy journey for an aspiring and amazing talented artist that has gone through a lot of trials and tribulations in his early ages.
"The title 'Take Me Away' is something I asked God to do for me. To take me away from the negative things I was around, to take me away from the ghetto, the struggle, the poverty! At the same time I wanted him to also take me away to unbelievable heights, and let me enjoy all the fruits and labor of life, the way he said we are to enjoy."
"My debut album 'Take Me Away' means a lot to me as I put all my heart into it. It's the beginning of my new life and the first time I have really felt alive in a longtime. It's been a long road to get to where I am at now and I didn't just get here; I've had to learn the importance of patience, and understanding, and the best is yet to come."
The acclaimed lead single, "Where's Cashmere?", has already been released and well accepted by fans and critics and officially marks Cashmere's return to the Hip-Hop game, followed by the infectious single "It's My Time" -- music videos for both singles have already been released.
"I was one of, if not the, hottest up-n-coming Hip-Hop artist in NYC before I ran into troubles with the law. So everybody was asking where I was and what was going on with me -- they asked 'Where's Cashmere?' so I’m letting everybody know that Cashmere is back again to bring that crown back home."
Cashmere's career dates back to 2003 when his mixtape "The Proposal" was released, hosted by DJ Kay Slay, followed by "Me & My Music" (2006), hosted by Mr. Cee -- both critically acclaimed projects. In one of many articles written, The Source claimed that, "Cashmere is leading the charge to bring the Hip-Hop crown back home." Cashmere has worked with many artists including Bun B, Big Daddy Kane, Jim Jones, Lil Boosie, Akon, Maino and a host of others while being featured on albums such as DJ Kay Slay's "Streetsweepers Vol. 1", and the follow up "Pain From The Game".
In Cashmere's music you will find that you are envisioning a story so real and full of life, revisiting a feeling you have felt, and a sound you will want to replay over and over again. Cashmere recognizes his eagerly awaited album as his opportunity to showcase his skills once again, implying that this project is the culmination of years of practice and progress.
