Get ready for Souled Out, a new event aiming to showcase the best up and coming talents in London’s soul, jazz and RnB scene. Taking place at Relentless’  music venue in the heart of Soho, Souled Out will take place on Thursday 17th May from 7pm onwards and promises a night of old school feeling from some of the city’s talented new voices;  Bobii Lewis is headlining, whilst Boadi, Lottie Jade, Rose Gray and Tilly Bushay are also set to perform. The Beat London host Nadia Jae will provide the grooves and Reprezent Radio host Rellik will be hosting the evening.

Souled Out is the brainchild of 25 year old CentreStage Events founder, Vanessa Okojie. With years of side hustling whilst growing her own music business behind her, she founded the events series to help give a voice to the creatives she meets every day. CentreStage aims to give a platform to London’s talented urban artists, often working full time day jobs to make ends meet, with Souled Out looking set to shine a light on the best of London’s underground soul sounds.

Thursday, 17th May
7pm til 11pm

Bobii Lewis (headliner)
Since the release of his wickedly inventive debut mixtape Blind In The Summer, which featured collaborations with Stefflon Don and WSTRN, Tottenham-born Bobii Lewis has become one of the most talked about names in the UK underground contemporary R&B scene.

He was cherry picked as a vocalist for Wretch 32 and Avelino’s iconic mixtape Young Fire Old Flame, has supported UK Garage legend Craig David at his recent O2 Academy Brixton show and his single ‘Drifting’ was the BBC Introducing track of the week on BBC Radio 1Xtra in December 2017. Now working on his highly anticipated debut album, 2018 looks set to be the year Bobii hits crossover success with his first release of the year being ‘Force You’ featuring Not3s.

Boadi (pronounced bwer-dee)
Boadi is a singer/songwriter & producer hailing from South London. His distinctive nostalgic sound is a fusion of R&B, Jazz and Afro-funk, with D’Angelo, Fela Kuti and Marvin Gaye among his top musical influences.

As an independent artist, Boadi has begun to orchestrate progressive strides forward in his young career, most notably being featured on COLORS, Sir Elton John’s Rocket Hour on Beats 1 and DJ Target’s BBC Radio 1Xtra Homegrown show. Boadi and ‘The Banku Powers’ (his live band) have previously performed headline shows to sold-out crowds at the Servant Jazz Quarters and the London Archspace.
