Kosi (neé Akosua Gyebi) is a New York City based singer/songwriter with
nappy hair and jazz roots. Although she always brings just a little drama to
her compositions and interpretations, she's more than just a drama queen.
She's got piercing eyes and a voice that's larger than her body. But, small as
she is, she won't fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can
follow, from jazz, to rock, then folk, but never more than a few steps away
from the blues.
She cites Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone as her main influencers, and has
been compared to Tracy Chapman, India Arie, Ma Rainey, and Bessie Smith
