ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Album Reviews
***This is an album of absolute individuality and self expression. It is representative of an artist expressing her inner world beauty, colors, creative dreams and perceptions through sounds, words, voice and music. This artist is not in contention with anyone or any other style. It is potentially a collector's item for niche music. Organically Singing is a colorfully creative album. Well done. - Oluwatoyin Ojeyomi (Papa Tee) ~ KORA Award Nominee Artist, Producer and Media Personality,

*** Very nice. Tosinger's voice has a theatrical quality, like an opera soprano confidently moving into pop like a Sarah Brightman. Definitely she will hold her own in an orchestra format. Great composition too, some of her songs can easily move into an afro territory of Bjork or Kate Bush. - Ayo Osinibi ~ World Music Record Producer, DJ and Art Curator

Profile
Tosinger is a sweet spirited indie artist, an inspirational AfroSoul/Folk Singer Songwriter from Ogun State, Nigeria. She is also a Writer/Poet and a Creative Arts Consultant. An eclectic woman of the arts with a warm personality and matchless passion, her message remains inspirational and uplifting. Her vocal essence has been described as soulful, soothing and calming, her sublime voice displays a simple conveyance of heartfelt richness and freshness. She draws influences from her Yoruba cultural background and afrobohemian earthiness from her maternal lineage which contributes to the aura of her image. Tosinger's music influences consists of an eclectic mix of artists including Mariam Makeba, Angelique Kidjo, Tracy Chapman, Whitney Houston, Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Ade, Cece Winans, Celine Dion, Lauryn Hill, India Arie, Fela Kuti, Asa, Don Moen, Kim Burrell, Nina Simone to name a few.

Tosinger started singing in the church as a worship leader in her college fellowship at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria where the nickname, ‘Tosinger’, was coined by friends. Her first name Oluwatosin (short form - Tosin) means “God is worthy to be worshiped” in her native language, Yoruba. The merge of ‘Tosin’ and ‘Singer’ became ‘Tosinger’. In 2000, she attended Nottingham University for a postgraduate (MA) program in International Relations where she became known for her vocal talent and subsequently played a leadership role in the school's Revival Gospel Choir. She moved on to study Music/Worship/Theater at the creative arm of the International Bible Institute of London in 2002 where she thereafter had the opportunity to be part of some London Broadway shows’ vocal ensemble including an Adaptation of 'Mother Goose'-The Pantomime’, ‘GodSpell’ and ‘Rent’. During her stay in London, she learned the acoustic guitar and did backup vocals for contemporary Christian recording artists - Matt Redman and Dave Wellington. Tosinger opened for International legendary African musician 'Lagbaja' at the notable Variety Playhouse Atlanta, during his 2015 US Tour.

Tosinger released ‘Sound of God’ digitally in 2009, a song lyrically inspiring and ambient in delivery. This song became the US southern regional winner, chosen by the Donna Groff Agency in the Songwriters’ competition at the AMTC (Actors, Models & Talent Competition) Florida 2009 where she also got a certificate in Stage Presence and Performance.

'FINALLY', a 6-track EP, her first published work was released in January 2012 and thereafter the 'Afrospire Demo' of 7 tracks in 2013. Tosinger has a drive and a desire to contribute her music to the world, positively through inspirational messages basked in the ‘African/Soul/World’ genre of music to effect change and spread love, peace, joy, positivity one listener at a time. She recently graduated with a Masters degree in Arts Administration from SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design), Atlanta.

Tosinger says “Songwriting comes natural to me. My lyrics are usually influenced by real life experiences/lessons of life, folk and nature, they are also spiritually inspired focused to encourage others. Musically, it is a mix of African vocalisms, beats and the Yoruba language and rhythm rendered in a contemporary way, sometimes as a soulful ballad, sometimes mid tempo, a music genre that I'd like to refer to as “Inspirational AfroSoul or AfroFolk”. I do incorporate other genres like Jazz, Reggae, Ambient music, World, Spoken Word and Neosoul. I can also play around with tunes on the acoustic guitar and African percussions".

Tosinger’s music brand is one of African authenticity and roots, very original, organic and traditional, while at the same time, contemporary and modern.

The epitome of novelty and originality. Tosinger is creating and re-creating in her own lane, providing her audiences with the best that soul and folk has to offer. And it is all done under the Afrodiasporic umbrella. If you are looking for an album to listen to at any time or place, ‘Organically Singing’ is it. The nostalgia, the resonance, the careful production – this musician is operating at a level that very few can claim.
