About Ola Onabule

Ola’s new album, POINT LESS was critically received worldwide. The new album is on the DownBeat list of Best Albums of 2019.

Onabulé is a charismatic and sophisticated singer/songwriter possessing an emotional intensity and vocal virtuosity, a poignant storyteller and capacity to cross cultural and musical boundaries with an unflinching lyrical pursuit of truth and justice.

Words, melodies, and rhythms walk a delicate tightrope of paradoxes, British born, Nigerian raised - a childhood and adulthood immersed in two disparate cultures, on two different continents, during two different periods of time. Onabulé is a rugged individualist, a deeply soulful musician who has absorbed the surround sound of his youth - jazz, world - and incorporated key elements into his distinctive style. He is direct and passionate, confident in his ability to sell a song with conviction. Onabulé has forged an international career via his relentless program of recordings and concerts. He has appeared at many of the most respected international jazz festivals including Montreal, Vancouver, Istanbul, London, Edmonton, Umbria, as well as concert halls and jazz clubs worldwide. His songs about love, loss, and the human condition have been performed all over the world with his quartet/quintet as well as with the Grammy® Award-winning WDR Big Band, the SWR Big Band and other symphonic orchestras. Onabulé's reach is global and he is emerging as a musician's musician, possessing a range and aptitude that place him on that shortlist of special artist andentertainer. His three-and-a-half octave baritone, the powerful emotions he conveys with it, and his elegant appearance connect with audiences around the world. Whether in person or on record, Onabulé gives his all, which includes a thoughtful interpretation of his experiences and the world around him. Ola is sponsored by many companies but primarily Sennheiser and Neumann of Germany


A track from the album, The Old Story, was selected by NPR in the US as one of the Best New Songs from across their stations in the US.
