A multi-instrumental songwriter, producer and performer, Uromi strives to tell stories with his sounds just as much as his words. Born in Birmingham, UK, he takes his name from the town in Nigeria his father is from. “It’s all about origins, everything starts somewhere. It’s not just about ethnic or national heritage, but the origin of ideas, feelings and experiences.”. Uromi’s music blends his influences with his varied experience as a session musician across different genres, spanning gospel, indie rock, hip hop and jazz, using this background to create intriguing songs that are topped off with his “indie soul” vocal style.
