With more than 300,000 views on You Tube, the hit video “Me & You On Top”
elevated the exciting 20-year-old singer-songwriter Ozonna into one of London’s most buzzed-about new artists. His sultry, charismatic voice has been described by KickKickSnare.com as “fragile, yet captivating, eliminating any sense of been-here-before,” Live Jam TV said his “voice is uniquely beautiful” and Examiner.com gushed that his “smooth, silky voice has no flaw.”
Now, Ozonna, who recently moved to New York City, is poised to mesmerize this side of the pond with his highly visual personal style and own songs. Ozonna will release his debut U.S. single digitally, “We Glow,” on October 21st on Airgo Music Entertainment. Bold and endearing, tough but tender, the next-generation rising star says he makes “positive music for the soul,” and “We Glow” certainly fits that description. “We Glow,” produced by Grammy-nominated Jimmy Greco (Beyonce, Paramore, Jennifer Lopez, Miley Cyrus) and hit songwriter/producer Russ DeSalvo (Celine Dion, Trisha Yearwood, Santana), will be released on video in November. An Ozonna album will follow in 2015.www.airgomusic.com
Originally from Nigeria, Ozonna—who studied musical theater and while in London attended the Institute of Contemporary music while performing all over the city.
Ozonna moved to London, where he met and worked with noted underground music producers. Inspired by the city, he adapted quickly to London’s ever-changing music scene, which readily embraced his distinctive sound. For Ozonna, the path to greater recognition is rooted in the messages he conveys within his songs.
“The artists that I’m inspired by are storytellers,” he told Examiner.com. “That’s the kind of artist that I am, and that’s what I want people to take away from my music. When I’m writing, I try to convey some kind of a message or something I feel strongly about or am inspired by. I think that’s what connects it.”
Ozonna’s rich writing style and multi-cultural influences have shaped his music into what it is today, a tapestry of deep passion and love, woven from a diverse and exciting personal story. “Music is my motivation,” he said in one interview, and now Ozonna is motivated to bring his electrifying electro-pop sound to America.
