is a multi-instrumentalist composer, producer, song-writer, and performer in Chicago. He is a veteran of the Chicago DIY music community, having played a variety of primary roles in approximately 15 projects over the past decade. He toured extensively with those projects in the U.S.A., Mexico, Canada, and Europe. Nnamdi's solo music fuses hip-hop, math, pop, gospel, and jazz with a lyrical cadence that is rhythmically and phonemically complex. His songs often evoke a sense of satire that can be just as critical as it is humorous. Nnamdi's 2017 album DROOL received national and international recognition, and was featured on best album, song, and video lists on NPR, The Fader, Bandcamp, Paper Magazine, Timeout Chicago, Gold Flake Paint, and others. Apart from his solo music, Nnamdi remains active as a co-founder of Sooper Records and a drummer in the jazz-fusion band Monobody.
