Born in Chicago, but raised in West Africa — Nigeria to be exact — Obisoulstar is the epitome of a Renaissance Man. His music is like food for the starving senses and water for a withered heart; it reflects a man who has seen a lot, forgotten little, and is not afraid to tell the story.
His music embraces the sounds of Soul, Blues, Funk, Rock, Afrobeat, Lounge, and Reggae — with a dash of House and Alternative for extra style. Obisoulstar merges influences from the likes of Maxwell, Raphael Saadiq, Lenny Kravitz, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, and Fela Kuti (the father of Afrobeat), forming a concoction of melodic delight while promoting unity, love, and spiritual liberation through music.
Filled with energy and character, he takes his artistry everywhere time travels. He brings his audience with him on a journey, captivating them, while allowing those who share in the experience to escape through the release of spiritual energy. For this, he has been dubbed the “SoulRockinRolla” with his latest album released Oct 2010 rightfully titled so.
