Ola Onabule, the brilliant Soul and Jazz singer from the UK, has signed with Dot Time Records. His new album “It’s The Peace That Deafens” will be released in the fall.
In the press release statement from the label, Ola is quoted as saying that “It’s The Peace That Deafens is as much a work of exploration as it is a declaration.” The Album contains 12 evocative songs about identity, reconciliation and nostalgia. Words, melodies and rhythms that walk a delicate tightrope of paradoxes, born of both a childhood and adulthood immersed in two disparate cultures, on two different continents and at two different times. The mood is as resolute and certain as it is cautious and measured, suggesting the truth of the old adage: “The more you learn, the less you know for certain.”
“It’s The Peace That Deafens” is Ola’s eighth studio album. Recorded in London and mixed in the USA by three time Grammy winner George Whitty, this recording marks a departure from his two recent albums and features a largely acoustic set that is reminiscent of the great Jazz and Soul artists of the 1960s and 70s, whose music was able to change perceptions and open minds.”
We’re looking forward to the release in October.
