Laois native Tobi A releases 'Hope', the first single off his upcoming debut EP Aria.
Tobi A marks his ascent into the Irish R&B scene with the release of his latest single 'Hope', off his upcoming debut EP, Aria. An easy-listener with uplifting lyrics, 'Hope' is a promising taste of what's to come for the Laois native.
“Hope was inspired by a conversation that I had with one of my good friends during the summertime," explained Tobi A. "She told me that she was dealing with depression and other things in her life and that she was having a really hard time. I wrote 'Hope' mainly to get across to my friend that she doesn't have to go through the tough periods of time in her life alone.
"A lot of people are dealing with issues associated with mental health in today's society so I really wanted to write a song that would be able to deal with this particular issue.”
Tobi A's debut EP Aria is set for release this Friday, 22 November. In the meantime, take a listen to 'Hope' here:
