With guitar in hand and soulful vocals ready to go, Akintayo tells you the the story of his life... and yours. Akintayo's writing style depicts true, vivid stories... common stories to which almost everyone can relate. We all have many life experiences that touch us and are accompanied by a wide range of emotions and states of being. Akintayo's lyrics zone in on those feelings and states, using his own trials, tribulations and accomplishments as a palette for meaningful and touching lyrics.

Akintayo has had roots in music since birth, being born into a musical family on his mother's side. Now with a family of his own, as both a muse and material, the pictures painted with his words are more vivid and engaging.

Having an ear for production, you will find that Akintayo plays all of the instrumentaion for all of his compositions.

Singers and songwriters that have been inspirational to Akintayo include Donny Hathaway, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Sade & Prince. Some of his favorite storytellers of today include Musiq, John Mayer, Lenny Kravitz, Cheryl Crow, the Black Keys and Regina Spektor.

Most recently, Akintayo is a finalist for the 2007 John Lennon Songwriting Contest (www.jlsc.com) in the R&B category. His award winning song, "Only Human" tells a story of a couple at a difficult impass in their marriage, trying to bring resolution to their differences before it's too late.
