Nnamdi Ogbonnaya is a multi-instrumentalist composer, producer, and performer. His musical identity was forged in the DIY community of Chicago. Relentless participation in numerous musical projects bridged genres and created inroads between scenes. His ubiquitous presence was satirized by a 2016 quote from Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss in the Red Eye Chicago: “If Chicago music had elected oces, Ogbonnaya probably would be mayor.”
Constant participation at the local level quickly opened channels to a broad cross-section of the arts world. Nnamdi toured the USA and Canada with projects ranging from punk to jazz. He played the basements of Mexico and Europe in his hardcore band, Itto. His jazz-fusion project Monobody opened for Tortoise on one of Chicago’s premiere stages. A full accounting of his musical activity over the last eight years includes approximately 15 bands and dozens of tours.
All the while, Nnamdi has released a stream of records and EPs under the ironic moniker “Nnamdi’s Sooper Dooper Secret Side Project.” His solo styling combines hip-hop, math, gospel, rock, and jazz. The releases range in tone from the colorful hip-hop of Feckin Wierdo (2014) to the bleak post-punk atonality of the Despondent EP (2013). His songs often contain a sense of satire that can be just as humorous as it is critical. Nnamdi’s lyrical insights draw on the diversity of his cultural experience as a Black, Jewish, first generation Nigerian-American.
Nnamdi reads and writes music fluently, and relies on those skills as part of his dedicated creative process. His work is characterized by the coupling of sophisticated compositional structures with pop-music motifs. His live performances are characterized by ever evolving arrangements, which can take the form of an intimate solo exhibition or a 15-piece orchestral presentation.
DROOL, his most mature and accessible work to date, is a Father/Daughter Records & Sooper Records co-release, out March 10, 2017. Nnamdi co-founded Sooper Records in 2016 as a platform to focus on his solo music, and to share the music of his community.
