N’Dambi emerged as a background vocalist for Erykah Badu, contributing to her breakthrough album, Baduizm. While working with Badu, she released 3 critically acclaimed independent albums (Little Lost Girls Blues, Tunin’ Up & CoSignin’ and A Weird Kinda Wonderful) impressing audiences world-wide with performances across the globe. N’Dambi has also appeared on projects with Snarky Puppy, Lecrae, Ariana Grande and many more.
As a result of N’Dambi’s success as an independent artist, she was signed to the reactivated legendary Stax Records; releasing the grammy nominated album Pink Elephant in late 2009. N’Dambi’s purposeful songwriting offers the listener detailed lyrical snapshots largely created from observations, rather than her own life. Her soulful vocal instrument rekindles our relationship with soul music flawlessly, with insightful lyrics and tight arrangements that resound the energies of past soul sisters like Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Mahalia Jackson and Chaka Khan.
Blessed with a deep contralto, she ingeniously distills soul-deep inspiration into a sensual style of elegance and power, making her a fundamental addition to the R&B/Soul movement of our times and our future.
