A year ago Tayo Oyekan was busking 10 hours a day in his hometown of Reading, England.

Now, the 18-year-old Nigerian-Scottish songwriter has just announced two live shows for September 2022. Performing under the moniker Tayo Sound, he gears up for the release of his debut EP with co-signs from indie tastemakers and industry heavyweights alike.

After leaving school at age 16 to pursue music, Tayo busked full-time until he saved enough money to buy the production software he needed to record his own demos. When music blog Hillydilly shared his song “Yes or No” he caught attention from the US and UK and subsequently signed to Black Butter/Arista Records.

A true music obsessive,Tayo’s eclectic taste, DIY approach and lyrical sensibilities drip with cool, easy style. “I love music discovery; finding genuinely good underground music,” says Tayo. “I’m just a normal, introverted guy chilling in an unimportant town in England trying to figure out how to be an artist and how to have a sound that I love and that other people will love.”
