Akua Tu started singing in the school choir and at the tender age of 9 was singing in the equivalent of the Royal Festival Hall in Germany and HongKong. At the age of 14 she sang and played Bass Guitar in her own Reggae band performing at the Donmar Warehouse Theatre in London on several occasions.
During her time singing background vocals in a 16-piece African Jazz/Funk band, Akua auditioned for a Gospel band and found herself performing alongside The Sounds of Blackness and other well known artistes.
Forever moving forward she then sang background vocals with a five-piece Jazz/Funk band and then lead vocals in a 3-piece R'n'B band performing in the presence of Trevor Nelson who were offered an independent record deal.
Having achieved the highest accreditation in World Music for Live Musicianship and Rehearsal/Performance, she then went on to achieve the highest accredation at the British Academy of New Music as Vocal Artist and Performing artist at the end of 2007.
She performed, for the first time as a solo artist, with guitar in hand in January 2007, to a packed audience at the Vocals@Vortex in Dalston, with the Bob Stuckley Trio and was told by an audience member that she blew everyone out of the water. At a recent British Academy Of Songwriters, Composers and Authors songwriting critique (June 2009) Tim Fraser, Phil Pickett and Peter Cunnah (D:Ream), were very impressed with her piano and vocal track "Mother Nature", due to be released from her new ablum 'Introspection' out now.
