N’Dambi emerged as a background vocalist for Erykah Badu, contributing to her breakthrough album, Baduizm. While working with Badu, she released 3 critically acclaimed independent albums (Little Lost Girls Blues, Tunin’ Up & CoSignin’ and A Weird Kinda Wonderful) impressing audiences world-wide with performances across the globe. N’Dambi has also appeared on projects with Dallas jazz band, Snarky Puppy; hip-hop Lecrae; pop star Ariana Grande and many more.

As a result of N’Dambi’s successful career as an independent artist she was signed to the reactivated legendary Stax Records releasing Pink Elephant in late 2009. On her 2011 Grammy-nominated album Pink Elephant, N’Dambi’s purposeful songwriting offers the listener detailed lyrical snapshots largely created from observations, rather than her own life. N’Dambi’s soulful vocal instrument rekindles our relationship with soul music flawlessly with insightful lyrics and tight arrangements that resound the energies of past soul sisters like Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Mahalia Jackson and Chaka Khan.

Blessed with a deep contralto, she ingeniously distills soul-deep inspiration into a sensual style of elegance and power, making her a fundamental addition to the R&B/Soul movement of our times and our future.

In 2018 N’Dambi released a collaboration EP, Air Castle with All Cows Eat Grass front-man T. Brown. She is currently working on her next project, Dream Junkie set for release in 2019.
