Chidi is: An earnest communicator of emotion & melody; creating an intimate atmosphere for exchange
With passionate vocals and a rich velvet tone that caresses the ear UK Singer-Songwriter CHIDI
takes you on a musical journey beginning at the first note. Borrowing from the rich traditions of
classic soul music and blending a fusion of Rock, Reggae and Jazz Chidi delivers her own brand
of UK Soul.
Her first foray into music began at her local church, where she attended a funeral and heard such
wonderful sounds that she decided to stay. After singing with the church youth choir for a number
of years she began touring Europe supporting major Gospel artists as part of a National choir
which gave her more confidence to sing both lead vocals and backup, she then ventured out into
a girl-group named 'Redeemed', but it wasn't long before she realized that her true passion was
to be a solo artist.
If you listen closely, you can detect the influences of artists such as Angie Stone, Betty Wright and
a little Otis Redding thrown in for good measure. her first solo project entitled 'Unrehearsed' is
filled with honesty as she expresses her faith, her love and her heartbreaks along this short but
interesting journey called life.
