(not so) New Music Lookout #4  

Posted by Roddykat in

Ok, this one is a little different because while this artist is new for where I found him, but not new to the scene. His name is Ola Onabule. A London, England (do you sense a theme here?) born Nigerian with a smoking voice. I put him somewhere between Marvin Gaye and Micheal Macdonald.  He has a four octave range (which means he can hit a good range of notes) and apparently, has five albums under his belt starting from 1999 to 2004. He appears to have opened for a number of people like Patti Labelle and Natalie Cole and has written Arias for the Royal Opera House.

     Ok, so why am I talking about him when he doesn't seem to have had an album since 2004? Well, recently, I've been listening to a podcast that hd played one of his songs that he recently had put on the Podsafe music network (we'll talk about that some other time). The song was called 'Soul Town' and it looks like it was on his last album, 'in Emergency Brake Silence' from 2004. you should take a listen to it and the other song that is there. Go here to do so:

Ola Onabule page on PMN

or go directly to his website and check out that and his other stuff: Olamusic.com

I think you'll like his stuff.

Oh, and i think he's on Myspace....addicts.

Not gonna happen. I promise that. As i'm prone to saying, "I will not go softly into that BAD night."
