From the venue:

Born Amir Elkhalifa in Washington D.C. to a Sudanese father and African American mother, Oddisee bore witness to stark inequity early in life, shaping his politically charged music. Raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, he tackles the human condition with unwavering conviction, merging elements of jazz, funk, and go-go into his hip-hop rooted production. Instead of pursuing record deals and executives, Oddisee has taken the less-traveled path, streamlining elements of the industry from recording and producing his music to steering his marketing strategy and tour runs.

A string of contemporary releases—Rock Creek Park (2011), The Beauty in All (2013), The Good Fight (2015), Alwasta (2016), and The Iceberg (2017)—headlining performances with his 5-piece band, Good Compny, and streams in the hundreds of millions have propelled him to international recognition and acclaim. Celebrated as a deep-thinking emcee, Oddisee explores human ambition, posing the question: “how far are you willing to go, and why?” on his 2023 return full-length album “To What End”. His work has been celebrated by NPR, TIME Magazine, Rolling Stone, and many more across the globe, with Pitchfork deeming 2017’s trenchant The Iceberg “a focused beam of live-band and hip-hop soul that rattles loudly in our present political moment,” and Stereogum describing 2020’s Odd Cure as “gorgeous”, while NPR booked Oddisee for TWO Tiny Desk performances.
