Nubii Announces ‘Old, Fine, Funky’ Album

New Album Out February 1, 2018


Fredericksburg, Virginia – January 19, 2018 – Together more than two decades, the members of Nubii are veterans in the music scene. Grown men and women who know how to handle their own. Seasoned musicians working together for over two decades, they have put the final touches on their fourth studio album, Old, Fine, Funky, slated for release February 1, 2018.

Tanyah Dadze Cotton, who handles everything from the lyrics to the production to the keyboard noted, “We play new old music, and we are who we are, take it or leave it. We aren’t trying to become the next Bruno Mars.” Ironically enough their ‘70s style that marries funk, soul, and world sounds in harmony has been compared to Bruno Mars by listeners. Nubii has also drawn comparisons to Arrested Development and Jill Scott but their music is very much its own art form.

Reviews from their last three years touring with Blues Music Award nominee, Gaye Adegbalola and the Wild Rῡtz included; Sheryl and Don Crow of The Nashville Blues Society raved, “Their unique approach to this great music is indeed fresh and exciting!” Duane Verh of Roots Music Reports had similar sentiments, “Earthy percussion and roots-based backup choruses, that at times take very tasty harmonic turns, are key components of one of this young year’s freshest sounding releases.”

Nubii, Tanyah Dadze Cotton and co-songwriter/lead vocalist Gloria Rain Jackson with a little help from their friends, have been making music and playing live since the early ’90s. They’ve created quite a following playing in the US, Canada, and Europe. From the Hudson River Park Blues & BBQ New York City NY to the Downtown Holiday Market in Washington D.C, to the Virginia Women’s Festival, to the Cognac Blues Festival Cognac France. Currently, they are working on streaming shows direct to fans with the release of Old, Fine, Funky coming soon.
