TERI TOBIN – Love Infinity. ALBUM

Born on Valentine’s Day, this Arizona-born songstress, songwriter & producer had sounds of soul music flowing through her veins at an early age. The former beauty pageant winner decided long ago while singing along with Natalie Cole’s Our Love that music was her true passion and has set her sights on her dream ever since.
As well as studying classical voice at Howard University, Tobin gained stage experiences during President Clinton’s Inaugural Gala on the National Mall, performing background for Diana Ross, Whitley Phipps, and shared the stage with Patti LaBelle, Luther Vandross, Shai and many others. She also got her first taste of the nightclub scene while living in Washington, DC at the infamous Takoma Station.

Performing demos and background vocals for artists such as Joe, Chico DeBarge, Coolio, Chante Moore, Korea-based Uptown, Coco Lee and Mica Paris has prepared her for her moment to shine as a solo artist. She also appears on James Tobin’s sophomore release entitled “Late Nite” and co-wrote the title track.

Although most of her influences are male singers like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Donny Hathaway, Tobin is reminiscent of the sultry sounds and richness of R&B or Jazz singers of yesterday.
