    This edgy and cinematic video was directed by the brilliant Nick Bartleet of Pixelloft and filmed in Worcester, UK. A film noir tale of gangster life set in a former art deco theatre filled with crystal chandeliers and nostalgia.

    ‘Tis What It Is
    music Glafkos Kontemeniotis
    lyric Aimua Eghobamien

    Come on and walk the walk
    Feeling mighty fine Babe
    Swish, swoosh and on you go
    Feeling mighty fine
    I should realise
    ‘Tis what it is
    ‘Tis what it is
    I say!

    Hat on and to the side
    Feeling mighty fine Babe
    Click-clack your red heels high
    Feeling mighty fine
    I should realise
    ‘Tis what it is
    ‘Tis what it is
    I say!

    ABOUT THE ARTIST
    London-born, he has lived at various points on three continents and experienced at firsthand Nigerian drums and folk, European Pop and American R&B. His own performance experience includes Theatre, Gospel, Rock, Pop, Contemporary Christian, R&B, Soul and the Blues. That all these find a home in his repertoire is a testament to contemporary jazz and Eghobamien's passion in embracing diverse influences.

    Eghobamien studied Jazz Vocal Performance and Creative Writing at university in New York and trained as a classical baritone. Though a vocalist, he draws constant inspiration from many influences: Nina Simone, Cassandra Wilson, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Fela Kuti and Babatunde Olatunji.

    His debut album, “Poured Gently”, combines fresh and unusual arrangements of jazz and pop standards from Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, George and Ira Gershwin, Stevie Wonder and Bon Jovi with haunting and melodic original compositions and thoughtful lyrics. Show less
