Bio

OKENYO is a vocalist based in Sydney whose beautifully poised and deeply evocative storytelling is enriching the waters of neo-soul and pushing the boundaries of pop music.

Her expressive and achingly beautiful melodies invite listeners on a journey through the underworld, a mirror world of reality where personal stories meet ancient mythology.

Enigmatic, mysterious and evocative in her lyricism and storytelling, OKENYO, emerges from the pack as a uniquely charismatic artist, part of a new generation of powerful women set to make their mark.

’10 feet tall’ is an introduction to a special artist.


OKENYO announced herself in 2015 with the wry and colourful ‘Just A Story’, turning heads here and Internationally. It was featured in CLASH (UK), Noisey (US) and HUNGER TV (UK), who described OKENYO as “Equal parts Frank Ocean, Grace Jones and M.I.A.” 


2016 began with a bang, joining label-mate Urthboy and the supreme Sampa The Great on the warm and uplifting ‘Second Heartbeat’ - a favourite on triple j and community radio alike. 10 Feet Tall sees her collaborating with producer Badcop (Tkay Maidza’s ‘Brontosaurus’ and Handle My Ego’)


With a mission statement of igniting strength and spirit in the women around her, she explains the meaning behind the song:


“Sometimes before you know it you’re stuck in a way of living and it feels almost impossible to make a change, to break habits. But if it isn’t enough, why stay the same? 10 Feet Tall is a manifesto for the future: stand tall and claim your power.”


With an enthralling new single, a fresh label deal and a national tour ahead of her, the excitement has just begun.
