The tour adds to a landmark year for Oladokun, who recently released her new song, “Power,” which will be included in the forthcoming documentary, Loudmouth, about the life and battles of Reverend Al Sharpton, out December 9. “Power” is Oladokun’s latest release following “Sweet Symphony,” her collaboration with Chris Stapleton that debuted earlier this fall. Of the song, Rolling Stone praises, “thrilling duet partners,” while Billboard declares, “The sparse accompaniment allows Oladokun’s cool, smooth voice and Stapleton’s gritty fervor to shine. Essential listening” and The Tennesseanproclaims, “stirring…Oladokun’s star is on the rise.”
Additionally, Oladokun was featured on “CBS Mornings” last month speaking with correspondent Anthony Mason and recently unveiled new songs “Purple Haze,” “Fortune Favors The Bold” and “Keeping The Light On.” The singles follow Oladokun’s breakthrough major label debut, in defense of my own happiness (Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records), which landed on numerous “Best of 2021” lists including at NPR Music, Billboard, Variety, American Songwriter, The Tennessean, Nashville Scene and The Bitter Southerner.

Continuing to receive critical attention, Oladokun was also recently featured in Vanity Fair, who proclaims, “Her name is both prescient and redundant. She oozes energy that shifts a room’s center of gravity and makes you happy for it. It is charisma and she has it in spades. It’s the way she approaches her craft too.”
Since her debut, Oladokun has performed on “CBS Saturday Morning,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “TODAY,” PBS’ “Austin City Limits and NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series and was a guest on the renowned podcast “Song Exploder.” She was also a member of the #YouTubeBlack Voices Class of 2021, a NPR Music/Slingshot’s 2021 Artists to Watch, a Billboard LGBTQ Artist of the Month, Spotify’s RADAR US: Artists to Watch 2021 and Amazon Music’s Artists to Watch 2021, was highlighted as part of HULU’s “Your Attention Please: The Concert” and had her music included on CBS’ “CSI: Vegas,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” ABC’s “Station 19,” NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and HBO’s “And Just Like That” among many others.
Moreover, Oladokun has collaborated with Brandi Carlile and Lucie Silvas on “We Don’t Know We’re Living,” with Noah Kahan on his track, “Someone Like You” and with Jason Isbell for a new version of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Known for her powerful live performances, Oladokun completed her first ever headline tour earlier this year and has joined artists such as Maren Morris, My Morning Jacket, Jason Isbell, Pink Sweat$, Leon Bridges and Manchester Orchestra on the road.
