ONLYBISI (pronounced bee-see) is a producer/songwriter born and raised in Essex County, New Jersey of West African descent (Nigerian-Yoruba). Along with being a capable and soulful vocalist, he is an accomplished instrumentalist: competent with both a guitar and a piano. Music and creative writing have always been major pillars in his life. Both provided an escape from the harsh realities of his inner city community and traumatic early life experiences. As a musician first, he blends all of his musical influences to create a unique sound bed for his wide range of vocal expressions. ONLYBISI recently completed his undergraduate degree at Fairleigh Dickinson University (Class of ’16) and is now completely focused on bettering his craft, increasing his output, and sharing his art with a larger audience.
