Armless O

Armless O is a poet with a Hip-Hop twist. He has released two highly successful singles from his highly anticipated A.D.P mixtape. Ironically, the young poet only started writing at 16 as a means to vent or as most educational institutions call ‘anger management’, four years later he has honed this skill to verbalise and articulate what’s on his mind or what he believes in.  Armless  was highly influenced by what we now call the old school Hip-Hop scene. He drew creative inspiration from artists like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco and A Tribe called Quest. These individuals allowed him to grasp the concept of spoken word and inevitably lead him to be more inclined to perform spoken word over Hip-Hop beats.

Zola Marcelle

Zola features on Armless O’s new single and is a talented single in their own right. Zola’s voice has a strong base, a rich, thick middle and a sweet top range. She is equipped with the ability to weave in and out of harmonies and melodies but also understands the importance of a heartfelt performance. She has had the opportunity singing backing vocals for Brinsley Forde (ASWAD) and Levi Roots and has to date sung lead vocals sharing the stage with Omar, Jeremy Vine, Omar Puente and others.
