Finding a fresh new Neo-Soul voice is always a treat and our recent discovery of the vocal talent of 21 year old Jovani Occomy was just that. Hailing from Huntsville Alabama in the USA, Occomy started writing music on a guitar at 12 and singing from a young age – raised in a family home filled with the music of Marvin Gaye and Sade. Her writing and singing has a natural, stripped back ambience, tonally inspired by her natural surroundings when she was growing up.
Jovani’s dusky tones and soul-baring lyrical content – turning over the issues and the raw emotions of relationships and coming of age – gives her a distinct soul maturity which lends her tracks a real edge. Now working with producers such as Dylan Kidd, Tom Misch and Tulpa I think we’re going to see Jovani go from strength to strength in her collaborative work on her sound and also as an artist and writer in her own right.
