Somi is a Billboard-charting American jazz and pop singer and songwriter; her original music is directly influenced by her Ugandan and Rwandan heritage. She resides in New York City and Lagos, Nigeria. Her debut album, Eternal Motive, appeared in 2003 from SanaaHouse Productions. Her vocals are both full and smoky, a natural alto with a wide range; stylistically, she walks a line between the traditions of Dianne Reeves, Nina Simone, Letta Mbulu, and the later work of Dee Dee Bridgewater. In 2013, she signed with Sony's revived OKeh imprint and issued Lagos Music Salon, which included guest performances from Common and Angelique Kidjo, the following year. ~ Thom Jurek
