Aimua Eghobamien

Poured Gently the debut album of Aimua Eghobamien combines fresh and unusual arrangements of jazz and pop standards, haunting and melodic original compositions and thoughtful lyrics to produce a concept that sets a definite mood, entertains and quietly tells a story. Not least in this mix are collaborations with New York-based pianist, composer and arranger Glafkos Kontemeniotis. Recorded and mixed at Avatar Studios in New York and at Strongroom and AIR Studios in London, Poured Gently features the internationally known and highly regarded percussionist Bashiri Johnson and stellar musicians bassist Ed Kollar and drummer Scott Neumann.

With a dad who listened to a world of music from British Pop to Highlife and Calypso; a mum who sang him Ẹdo lullabies; and siblings who were interested in all things American Motown, Soul, US Pop and R&B charts his musical tastes developed without limitations. Living at various points on three continents, this London-born singer has experienced at firsthand Nigerian drums and folk, European Pop and American R&B.

Aimua studied Jazz Vocal Performance and Creative Writing at university in New York; taught by the Tony and Emmy Award-winning American singer and actress Lillias White and the legendary jazz singer Sheila Jordan. He studied voice with Mark Oswald, one of the Metropolitan Operas leading voice teachers.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
