Bio

If Sade, Corinne Bailey Rae and Lianne La Havas took a trip to visit Radiohead and made a stop in West Africa, the result of that trip would sound something like what Mary Akpa brings to her songs.

Born in Nigeria and raised in Southern California, Mary Akpa brings a blend of grounded freedom to her music- a seamless marriage of soul, jazz, electronic, and African influences.Mary's career spans numerous continents. At the age of 18, she was discovered by Arista/La Face records, ultimately becoming lead singer and songwriter for an all-girl band.  She spent time touring both domestically and internationally, from Germany to Iraq.  She's written with and for numerous artists and was featured with an a cappella vocal group on NBC's The Sing Off, all the while recording 2 jazz albums, 2 electronic/downtempo albums, and releasing her debut EP, Brave.
