Today we are very excited to welcome our first artist of 2015 to the Souls In Action Artist Collective, Povi Tamu! She’s been on an absolute tear recently, if you’ve seen her with us at Arise Festival or more recently at our Red Bull Sound Select show at the 1Up. After that debut she was welcomed on to the Red Bull Sound Select artist roster. Povi is rapidly becoming known for her soulful vocals and uplifting messaging in her songs. We are proud to have Povi on our collective and can’t wait to see what she gets up to next! Here’s a little more about Povi Tamu: Povi Tamu is a songstress for our times. Riding the groove between the sounds of yesterday’s soul and the boundless beat of her own internal metronome, her singing and songwriting abilities are only out-shined by her magnetic stage performance. Povi began performing in high school, playing most of the concert venues in Denver by the time she was 20, before relocating to Oakland to pursue music full-time. Ms. Tamu took advantage of her time living in the Bay Area with vocal contributions for Esta of Soulection, collaborative efforts w/ Zion I, and an exclusive single on the Amp Live album ‘Headphone Concerto’ with ‘Hustle 360’ on Plug Research. Her soulful voice invokes comparisons to Quadron’s Coco and Jessie Ware, while crafting her own vocal timbre inspired by the true-skool hip-hop era, electronic, future funk, and classic soul. A true audiophile, with a curiosity for driving dance rhythms, and a passion for progressive music production, her sound has yet to be truly classified. She embodies the true spirit of the independent artist, wether its a recent contract with Wilhelmina Modeling or joining the Red Bull Sound Select Team, she understands that these relationships don’t define her brand, they only support and strengthen her movement. For 2015 Povi Tamu is focused on making unforgettable music, aligning herself with like-minded thinkers, and channeling it all through one powerful performance at a time. Be sure to follow Povi for up to the second, angelic updates!
