“Colourful, energetic, exotic and talented, Soulman has warmed the hearts of many with his high voltage smile, incorrigible presence and mesmerizing performances….” Mandy Nolan Seven Entertainment Guide.

“Soulman O’Gaia has an uncanny ability to engage the very soul of an audience. An incredible performer with a wonderful energy”…Sandy McCutcheon ABC Radio    Soulman singing “Come to me Angel”

Soulman has recently drawn capacity crowds and won the hearts of many people at The Bellingen Global Carnival, Byron Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, and Neurum Creek Festivals. He has held the stage with Archie Roach, Xavier Rudd, John Butler and Kasey Chambers and featured on recordings with Paul Kelly, Shane Howard, Tiddas and Frank Yamma.

A towering 6 foot 5 inches tall, he is a fluent raconteur spreading feel-good vibes in the high energy performances that are his trademark. The music is a distinctive Caribbean blend of folk style story-telling with Soul, Blues, Rock, Reggae and Gospel stylings.

Souls’ life is a travelogue. After a globe-trotting childhood he founded his music as a busker in London’s Underground Subways, moving on to hone his skills in the volatile world of workingmen’s pubs, clubs and bars across Europe, England and ultimately Australia. O’Gaia has become a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, and a classic tunesmith whose songs linger in the mind and the heart.

His latest release is the uplifting and diverse “Freedom Songs” CD notable for its positive themes and conscious orientation.

All told his big voice reaching out with range and clarity is his most powerful calling card. When Soulman sings you see the intensity of emotion on his face and the soulful stirrings of his ancestral lineage.
