It’s been just shy of a year since Olu Bliss reemerged into the scene with his Traveling Bliss EP, his five-track outing that’s been on repeat ever since. As one of the most impressive artists out right now, the New York singer-songwriter gleams with his refreshing soul and warm energy throughout each release.
Olu returns to our pages today with a remix of the lead single from the project, “Dive In.” Fellow As We Arrive member Khary slides through with a crisp verse, driving the track even further as he vents over guitar melodies from Amos Rose. With another impressive track under their belts, Olu and Khary are well on their way to another banner year.
Stream the “Dive In” remix below and stay tuned for the full Traveling Bliss remix bundle.
Following a sold-out show with Masego, Lege Kale, and PRVDNT last night in San Diego, Olu Bliss shares a live performance of “Dive In.” His crisp vocals meld nicely with his band, indulging the audience in a warm aura of neo-soul. The footage stems from his February Traveling Bliss show at Shifted Recording Studio in Brooklyn, during which he broke down each track from his recent EP. With a talented pen, Olu delivers a silky set that oozes with passion—his live show is definitely one you want to catch!

I first stumbled upon Olu Bliss when he appeared on Khary‘s intern aquarium. mixtape earlier this year. Soon thereafter, I was drawn to “Norm Life,” the lead single from his Traveling Bliss EP.
The Nigeria-born, NYC-based artist recently unveiled the complete project for listeners to indulge in. Olu packages lush soul into the short and sweet bundle of five tracks, backed by production from the likes of Amos Rose, Luke Sweet, and more. As he details his experiences with love and self-acceptance over buoyant guitar and piano melodies, Olu proves to be one to watch in the near future.
