Expressive and existentially curious, singer/songwriter Iniko makes music for soul searchers. The Brooklyn native fuses sinewy vocals, the musicality of a multi-instrumentalist, and an adventurous imagination to tackle anxiety, damaged romance, and philosophy with warmth and whimsy. In the process, Iniko (they/them) has generated an inimitable brand of cosmic soul—and a growing fan base that includes 4 million TikTok followers. The artist has continued doing so with “The King’s Affirmation,” and then their rebellious 2023 single “Jericho” which pulsates with the electricity of a star coming into their own.
With a new project on the way, Iniko looks to use their music as a mirror for them and the rest of the world. “My new music’s not just about who I am. It’s about who we all are and who we would like to be,” they share. “Right now, where I am is the freest I’ve ever felt.”
