Album Notes

Born in Dallas, Texas to a singing family, N'Dambi was encouraged to sing and play piano at an early age. Her talents are multi-faceted; incorporating singing, songwriting and producing, as well as writing short stories, poetry and novels.

A sultry storyteller whose rich voice resounds the energies of past soul sisters, N'Dambi is able to evoke the spiritual essence of R&B flawlessly and readily joins the company of Jill Scott, D'Angelo and others in the movement to rekindle our relationship with 'soul music'. Her poetic lyrics, coupled with her uniquely divine vocal abilities captivate listeners into a hypnotic mantra of soulful and jazzy melodies.

To this end, N'Dambi has toured as a background vocalist for Grammy award-winning Erykah Badu and played a pivotal role in all of her recordings. She appears on Ms. Badu's platinum-selling debut album "Baduizm" and on "Erykah Badu Live" as well as the music videos "On & On", "Next Lifetime" and "Tyrone". To her recent credit, she co-wrote one track entitled "Hey Sugah" on Ms. Badu's latest release, "Mama's Gun". As accompaniment for Ms. Badu, she has also made television appearances on such shows as "MTV Unplugged", "One Life to Live", "The David Letterman Show" and BET's "Planet Groove" among others.

Aided by her recognition and accolades while performing with Ms. Badu, N'Dambi embarked on a solo career by launching her own label, Cheeky-I Productions. In 1999, she released her critically-acclaimed debut album, "Little Girl Blues" which has sold over 50,000 units to date. Her latest project, "Tunin Up & Cosignin" is a beautiful, moving and soul stirring double CD full of poetic imagery and introspective lyrics. With live instrumentation, this CD takes you first hand into the studio with N'Dambi as she and her talented band, the Dallas based production collective "Camp Wisdom", weave an eclectic potpourri ranging from gospel to country and everything in between.

N'Dambi aims to make timeless music. Music that lyrically endures the industry paradigm of one-hit commercial sensationalism. Music that successfully transitions across genres. Music of soul, heart and substance. On her next album, "A Weird Kind of Wonderful", which is slated for release sometime in early 2006, N'Dambi celebrates self-love with the same conviction and surrender exemplified in her striking photo on the cover of Marc Baptiste's "Beautiful": Pure, honest and free.

I already had her other CD, LITTLE GIRL LOST, but had to get this one and hear some of the same songs live and to hear some tunes I'd never heard before. You get 2 cds for the price of one. And this is real music. You get to hear what real soul music sounds like without all the mixing, sampling, etc. She's truly a unique artist. Love her low register voice...fire!

In search of her "Weird kinda wonderful" cd....

Tameka Hungerford

I just love her!!!
Ok I feel real crunchy I had no idea that N'dambi had a sophomore cd out. I'm going to buy this cd NOW (2006) I'm still jamming to her first cd Little Lost Girl. Keep up the awesome work. Too bad your home town of Dallas Texas isn't promoting more of your music. We need more good soul artist like yourself.

Myisha Harris

EXCELLENT!! A must-have!
I am SO glad I purchased this 2-disc set. The Live studio versions of the songs from her first CD are even better! If you liked her first CD, this one is a real treat...of the new songs, I love Ode 2 Nina, and Hot Pearl C. But you can play both discs from start to finish and what a wonderful ride it is!


The very definition of soul.
N'dambi is already a household name.There is nothing to prove here, it's already proven that she's A TOP NOTCH ARTIST. If you have her first CD, then you know.When I say TOP NOTCH thats exactly what I mean. N'dambi's a pro in ever facet of music, singing,writing,composing,arranging,producing....the whole nine yards.
