I"I sped down Robertson, my Inobe CD playing as loud as I could stand and as soulful as I wanted to become."
- Eric Jerome Dickey, from the NY Times Best Seller Naughty Or Nice
Inobe has a soul-shifting voice and sings with a transparent honesty that engages listeners in intimate dialogue and makes them feel she's singing directly to their situations. Her music is a rootsy blend of southern soul and acoustic R&B underlying a conscious lyric reminiscent of a time when folks wrote songs to change hearts and minds and conditions.
Inobe has performed 5 USO tours to lift spirits and entertain American troops around the world. She has played her music in 17 countries across North and Central America, Europe, Greenland, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Pacific Rim and the Caribbean. Her world travel experiences have added a heightened consciousness to her songs that were already rich with hope and compassion for others.
She has drawn audiences at many premier music venues including the Viper Room; King King Hollywood; Temple Bar; Hard Rock Café Atlanta; Cotton Club; Café Fais Do Do; Blue Café; EarthLink Live, Room 5 Lounge and Apache Café. She appeared before an audience of 400,000 viewers on Fox 5 Good Day Atlanta.
Inobe has been a featured performer at several regional festivals and conferences including Atlanta's Music Midtown, National Black Arts Festival, Heritage Arts Festival, African Festival of the Arts and Atlantis Music Conference.
Her music and persona have received larger-than-life attention. The real-life entertainer and her music inspire the lead characters in the New York Times best sellers “Naughty or Nice” (2003) and “Chasing Destiny” (2006) by Eric Jerome Dickey.
“I write about things God has brought me through, but I also write to others’ pain,” says Inobe. “People like your music if they can stretch to identify with it, but they don’t fully appreciate it unless your music stretches to identify with them first.”
