Introducing Tola Smith, an HR consultant by day that has been singing and developed a passion for it since she was about 6 years old and has been a choir member in every institution she has been in, and discovered her abilities as a solo singer in university. She did a lot of shows as a line up act for people like Sway, N-Dubz and so on in England while in school and was encouraged to go on after moving back home.
Her musical influences include the likes of Christina Aguilera, Brandy, Lisa McClendon, Floetry, Erykah Badu, Waje, Adele, Jazmine Sullivan, Mali Music, Dwele, Donell Jones, Neyo , James Morrison, The Script and a host of others. These artistes have helped Tola create a style consisting of RnB and soul music for herself.
She took a chance at the 3rd edition of “The Underground” which show cases up and coming artistes, and amongst the others she emerged the winner on the 27th of 2010 November.
Now working with Jesse Jagz on production she has recorded her first single “I’ll wait for you” . She is also currently working with a number of artistes on tracks that are coming soon.
She is also dreaming of putting a band of wonderful instrumentalists and vocalists together as “the intimacy that develops within a band that creates the lack of a need for them to practice much and produce music that is in sync and from the heart is what I want to experience In music and help my audience experience it too”
