UCHE

  • Twitter - Grey Circle

"UCHé pronounced (oo-chay) is a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, and model who commands the stage with a bold fiery persona colored with an edgy style laced with influences from music legends David Bowie and Prince. He has opened for Pop Star ‘Demi Lovato’ and Grammy nominated rapper, ’B.o.B.’ Standing six feet five inches tall, at first sight one may not believe that UCHé would be agile and nimble enough to deliver the energetic “leave it all on the stage” performances that he delivers during his live show.

 

He describes his performance style as, “No apologies, I go hard every freaking time. You haven’t seen a tall lanky dude ‘Get It’ like a short guy can... until now lol.” UCHé never flows one way when it comes to the feel or style of his music, stating, “I never want to be put in a box, that's so boring.” The vibrant young artist's dark raspy voice, like his music, does not take on one consistent tone or style; instead it soars and dives in color and timbre, uniquely evolving throughout the melodies of his music. His forthcoming EP, entitled “My Generation” is due to be released June 2017. It is a musical biopic chronicling UCHé’s descent into a world of hedonism fueled by excessive drug use and subsequent spiritual awakening that he credits as saving his life.

 

UCHé exclaims, “My Generation speaks of the issues I have with my own generation. I meant it to be a musical vehicle that provides fiercely honest social commentary on my generation’s dulled social conscious, its fascination with living a life of “excess” and the rampart drug use that powers this ever popular “YOLO” spirit” (You only live once).” Interestingly enough, he manages to cleverly cloak ‘musical sermons’ meant to tell stories, bring social awareness and call to action his generation, utilizing electronic dance music fused with funk that originates from his soul. To coin a phrase, UCHé calls his blend of electronic dance music and funk (“Funk” DM). "
