I am excited to announce the release of my debut album “A Time to Be Blue.” This record pays homage to the eclectic musical genres that have shaped me over the years, from my childhood home in Cameroon to the sunny skies of California.

It invites you to dance to the rhythms of my beautiful native city of Yaoundé in “Home,” share a quiet moment as you curl up with a book with “Naima’s Evening Song,” or pay tribute to a dear friend departed too soon in “You Left Me Blue.”
