This week we are pleased to welcome Bunmi Adeoye:
You can find more of her music on CBC Music
Toronto-based singer/songwriter Bunmi Adeoye (pronounced boo-mee a-day-oh-yeh!) is described as sounding like a mixture of Carol King and Tracy Chapman with a dash of Avril Lavigne and Ani DiFranco. Bunmi writes and sings tunes that could be the soundtrack of a scorned ex-girlfriend, desperately searching for "closure".
Bunmi lived in Europe for a several years and while there she worked with various local artists as a studio and backup singer. She was also a semi-finalist in the London-based Perrier Young Jazz Musician competition. She is strongly influenced by artists such as KT Tunstall, David Gray, Damien Rice, Sade and George Michael. She credits her flair for writing melodramatic tunes to listening to vintage French love songs, reading Harlequin romances before she was old enough to French kiss, and watching loads of Barbara Streisand and Judy Garland musicals.
She has performed in various Toronto venues, including Hugh's Room, Rivoli and Free Times Cafe. Bunmi recently released her debut album, Paper Dolls, Glass Houses.
