Recently hailed by CBC as one of the top 10 soulful female artists in the 2020 CBC Searchlight competition, Bukola is a 19-year-old musician who blends the sounds of contemporary R&B and Jazz music to create her own soulful sound. She's been deeply influenced by artists such as India Arie, Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.
Bukola has been pursuing her dreams of becoming a professional musician since she was 9 years old and has only been building momentum ever since. The grand prize winner of the Nimbus School of Recording Arts x Juno Host Committee provincial Battle of the Bands competition, Bukola has since performed at the JUNO pre-show Let's Hear it! Live, was interviewed by CBC, Metro Vancouver, and has become a very much sought-after young artist by music professionals and fans alike.
Metro News describes her as “the confident up-beat, young woman [who] plays guitar and sings with a simultaneous mastery and innocence”. When listing her inspirations, the article goes on to say that “like them, Bukola is an artist with something to say”.
Bukola has recently been working with Grammy Award-winning producer, Chin Injeti, and Juno award-winning producer Ben Kaplan on her debut EP which is set for release in early 2021.
