Nnamdi Ogbonnaya
Nnamdi Ogbonnaya
NNAMDI OGBONNAYA is a multi-instrumentalist composer, producer, and performer. His musical identity was forged in the DIY community of Chicago. Relentless participation in numerous musical projects bridged genres and created inroads between scenes. Near constant activity quickly made him a locus of gravity in the community. Constant participation quickly opened channels to a broad cross-section of the arts world. Nnamdi has toured the USA, Mexico Europe and Canada with projects ranging from punk to jazz. A full accounting of his musical activity over the last eight years includes approximately 15 bands and dozens of tours. All the while, Nnamdi has not only released a stream of records and EPs under his name and the ironic moniker “Nnamdi’s Sooper Dooper Secret Side Project”, but also runs his own label called SOOPER Records.
His solo styling combines hip-hop, experimental rock, gospel, and jazz. His songs can often contain a sense of satire that is just as humorous as it is critical. Nnamdi’s lyrical insights draw on the diversity of his cultural experience as a Black, Jewish, first generation Nigerian-American. His work is characterized by the coupling of sophisticated compositional structures with pop-music motifs. Nnamdi’s latest record DROOL is his most mature and accessible work to date.
Love Moor
Love Moor is a powerful NeoSoul artist who builds beautifully crafted, revealing songs that revolve around themes of sexuality, nostalgia, abandonment, and self love. Her music is infused with R&B and Hip Hop overtones and often references New Jazz and her island roots. Her freshman album Blu Polka Dots built her a strong following and her recently released sophomore project Simp Girl followed up, building on her acclaim in her hometown of Birmingham, AL and beyond, garnering radio play and media coverage nationally and internationally.



Love Moor has performed in concert in support of such acts as R.LUM.R., Amasa Hines and Phangs and has been featured at Secret Stages Festival, Art On The Rocks and multiple LOBOTOMIX showcases. In 2018 she will be featured at SLOSSfest and is performing 4 times at SxSW at the Secret Stages Official Showcase, The Scratched Vinyl 6th Annual Showcase, the Onward Indian Showcase and at Yeast By Sweet Beast minifest which kicks off Sx. Love has also just finished filming a series of videos for Spectrasonic Sound Sessions and is their featured artist for the month of February 2018, as well as the featured artist at Birmingham Mountain Radio during the same period. There’s lots more to come…
