OBENEWA

Singer. Songwriter.

Obenewa is a soul infused singer songwriter known for her crowd engaging performances with her acoustic guitar always close by. I first came across her music as she supported the British Hip-Hop artist TY and I've seen her live many times since. Obenewa may not be prolific in her releases, but the few pieces of music she does put out are always strong, her mixtape Therapy from 2010 is a favourite I still play often today. Obenewa has recently had her vocals appear on some more uptempo, house flavours, yet most fans will recognise her sound from her track 'Put Yourself In My Shoes', a classic that has got the crowd hyped and engaged each and every time I've seen her live.

The animation is based on Obenewa's performance at TY's Jazz Cafe gig.
