Today, Nigerian born, NYC-based artist Olu Bliss announce the release of his first EP in several years with Traveling Bliss. The new EP merges Olu’s soulful sound with his afro-beat roots, alternative rock, blues and pop on the 5-song offering.
Olu gracefully leaves the inner thoughts of the man he is growing to be all on the line in his new project “Traveling Bliss”. With most of these songs written on a trains to Florence, a red eye to Miami, or on a bus in Brazil, they explore a solo traveler’s growth and newfound consciousness that a normal life was never meant for him.
“Traveling Bliss is just setting the stage. I still have so many experiences to write about, I haven’t actually told these stories yet. I want to show someone what love looks like in color, I want them to come to a show and quit their job the next day because they experienced the joy of fulfillment, I want to sit with a tibetan monk on a mountain, learn to swim in Greece then jump off a cliff in the amazon. Yes, none of this is normal… but normal itself is relative.”
Take a listen above.
