Artist Spotlight: Teri Tobin
Born in Mesa, Arizona and raised in Southern California, Soulstress Teri Tobin has been cooing in key since coming out of the womb.
As with many of the soul greats she admires, from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye, training and early performances began standing flatfoot in front of the pews and belting past the church steeple. Classically trained at Howard University, there are layers to the award-winning, soul singer/songwriter. With each layer reveals a lusher depth into Tobin’s music and womanhood.
Love Infinity (2011 – Sōl 2 Kēp Entertainment) and its hit single, “Free,” a tribute to Donny Hathaway, was a #1 smash in the UK and the Netherlands for several weeks.
As a tribute to her fans, Tobin released So Good To Me (2012 – Sōl 2 Kēp Entertainment) with stand-out songs “Love Me” and “It’s Alright”.
The latest release of Truth Is (2014-TopNotch/INgrooves/Universal)
” and the current “Make Beautiful” can be heard on City Buzz Radio and other stations nationally and internationally. She wants to encourage listeners to allow love to happen in their lives, and to stand just as boldly and proudly in their truth as they have allowed Teri Tobin, with dignity and grace. And that’s the truth.
