SOUND SPOT: N'DAMBI
SOUND SPOT is a segment that I will be using to give exposure to some of my favorite artists that deserve some exposure. For those that don't know her, I introduce you to N' Dambi. Born in Dallas, Texas to a singing family, N'Dambi was encouraged to sing and play piano at an early age. Her talents are multi-faceted; incorporating singing, songwriting and producing, as well as writing poetry and novels. A sultry storyteller whose rich voice resounds the energies of past soul sisters, N'Dambi is able to evoke the spiritual essence of R&B flawlessly and readily joins the company of Jill Scott, Angie Stone, D'Angelo and others that rekindle our relationship with soul music. N'Dambi started out by touring as a background vocalist for Erykah Badu. She played an essential role in Erykah's recording career over the years. Venturing out on a solo quest, N'Dambi launched her own record label, Cheeky-I Productions. In 1999, she releaseed her critically-acclaimed debuted album, "Little Girl Blues," which is one of my favorites. Her most recent album was a double album titled, "Tunin Up & Cosignin" that was released in 2001. N'Dambi's poetic lyrics, coupled with her uniquely divine vocal abilities captivate listeners into a hypnoitc montra of soulful and jazzy melodies. N'Dambi has a new album dropping in early 2006 titled, "A Weird Kinda Wonderful!" The upcoming release has been described as her best work to date, so make sure you check for it!
