ODIE's music is filled with a global influence, bringing a plethora of elements to the table and combining them with precision. Born in Toronto to Nigerian parents, he spent four years sharpening his tools and refining his catalogue before putting out material more consistently, allowing the final product to shine with a focused, expertly-crafted clarity. He brings together elements of alternative rock, hip hop, Afro-Gospel/beat and more to create his own distinct sound that transports listeners to a world built from an ethereal yet natural soundscape.
ODIE's debut album Analogue was released in 2018, featuring singles “Little Lies”, “Story” & “North Face.” The project has graced countless playlists, from OVO Sound Radio to The A List: R&B to New Music Friday, not to mention virtually living on the homepages of Apple Music, Google play and Spotify. Additionally, ODIE's music can be heard on a number of television shows, including HBO's Insecure. If that wasn't impressive enough, his song "No Signs" was featured on the soundtrack of the original film, They Fight. ODIE is poised to take center stage as he continues to evolve on his path towards world and self discovery.
