Biography

As you explore Aimua Eghobamien’s personal background his musical style begins to fall in place. With a dad who listened to a world of music from British Pop to Highlife and Calypso; a mum who sang him Ẹdo lullabies; and siblings who were interested in all things American—Motown, Soul, US Pop and R&B charts—his musical tastes developed without limitations. Living at various points on three continents, he has experienced at firsthand Nigerian drums and folk, European Pop and American R&B. His own performance experience includes Theatre, Gospel, Rock, Pop, Contemporary Christian, R&B and the Blues. That all these find a home in his jazz repertoire is a testament to jazz’s open arms and Eghobamien’s passion in embracing diverse influences.

This London-born singer presents a style that is elegant and truthful, simple yet sophisticated. He settles into a lyric honestly and without haste, letting the song do the telling, producing something that is altogether unique and very much his own. You’re always invited to listen.

Eghobamien studied Jazz Vocal Performance and Creative Writing at university in New York; taught by the Tony and Emmy Award-winning American singer and actress Lillias White and the legendary jazz singer Sheila Jordan. He studied voice with Mark Oswald, one of the Metropolitan Opera’s leading voice teachers. He was a member of Barry Harris’ Jazz Ensemble Choir and the Times Square Church Choir. He draws constant inspiration from his influences: Nina Simone, Cassandra Wilson, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Fela Kuti and Babatunde Olatunji.
