With the release of Golden Days (25th Feb, Inakustik), award-winning singer TOKUNBO delivers a warm-hearted blend of folk and jazzy pop, with a cheeky hint of country.
Both nostalgic and forward-looking, the 11 songs capture the spirit of classic 70s songwriters like The Carpenters and Carol King, whilst adding layers of intricate guitar, shimmering soundscapes and unconventional rhythms.
“I wanted to write the album that the world needs right now; an album full of optimism and assurance,” says TOKUNBO, the winner of both the International Acoustic Music Award and Global Music Award. “An album like a golden autumn day.”
TOKUNBO shot to fame as the voice of breakthrough acoustic soul jazz combo Tok Tok Tok from 1998 to 2013; a journey which included five German Jazz Awards and international touring.
Golden Days marks her third album as a solo artist and continues the story of folk noir, after the release of Queendom Come (2014) and The Swan (2018). The touch of melancholy is still there, but here it seems like a small, nostalgic sigh in an otherwise optimistic world.
