Tomi Owó, born Tomi Owolabi, made her official debut into music when she began a project to release one song every month. She comes from a family of creatives, and grew up being a contribution either through singing, writing, or dance, wherever she touched base.
She is a firm believer of making meaning through great music, and her lyrics and writing style exemplify that. Her vocals are mellow and soothing, with rich vocal dynamics, and her genre is alternative, expressed in soul, pop, and afro-inspired sounds.
Tomi Owó’s first effort, Pieces, was released in September, the first song off the project. Pieces was produced by the fast-rising producer IBK, who is also her brother, and the song has become a favorite, and has been tagged “game changing.” Her new song, “Ile,” a Yoruba word meaning Light, is out for the month of October, and she sings about keeping that light within on regardless of circumstance.
Ile takes on a delightful mix of acoustic and afro-inspired sounds, and was produced by the eclectic audio architect J.Chef. It sure keeps getting exciting!
