Nigerian-American independent artist, Janeliasoul developed her love of music while growing up in Nigeria. Learning traditional Yoruba folk songs led to her discovering other musical genres, such as Soul and Jazz. Fast-forward to now and the Baltimore, Maryland resident's 7-piece band "Janeliasoul" is fusing those influences, along with Afrobeat into one infectious sound.
Lyrically, she draws off of love, life and positive self-affirmations, something she practices in her own life, on a daily basis. After her video for "Love-Hate" reached more than 1 million views on YouTube, Janeliasoul released her debut EP, "Self-affirmation Project." She followed up with a few singles and her latest release is "Cocoa" a song that brings back sweet childhood memories for her. As the new single continues to gain momentum, the sky's the limit for this Nigerian Goddess.
