Giveon at The Factory in Deep Ellum
Sat Sep 10 2022 – 8:00 PM
location: The Bomb Factory
Grammy-nominated R&B artist Giveon is an elegant baritone vocalist with a thoughtful approach to songwriting. He made his major-label debut in 2019 with “Like I Want You,” a bluesy, retro-contemporary ballad that registered on multiple Billboard R&B charts and paved the way for a fruitful and busy 2020. Giveon’s breakout year was highlighted by the short form releases Take Time and When It’s All Said and Done, a featured appearance on Drake’s Top 20 pop hit “Chicago Freestyle,” and similar success with his own “Heartbreak Anniversary.” After Take Time was nominated for a Grammy, that EP and its follow-up were combined as When It’s All Said and Done…Take Time (2021), a gold-certified release issued around the same time as “Peaches,” his smash collaboration with Justin Bieber and Daniel Caesar. All of this activity and acclaim built up to the release of Give or Take (2022), Giveon’s first proper album.
