Born and based in Seattle, Washington, Oblé Reed is a 22 year old mixed-race pop rap artist who has found himself in a lane of his own. His raw emotion and passion draws people in to hear what he has to say, and they leave with something more than a tune stuck in their head. That’s when he realized he was making more than just noise. Oblé’s ability to speak his mind, and portray his most inner thoughts, while keeping his language free of explicit material, has attracted many eyes which led to him winning “Seattle Times 2023 Best Album In Washinton State”. In 2021, Oble’s single “Loose Change” was featured on a collaborative album curated by Pharrell Williams and his creative collective, I_am_other, and in partnership with SoundCloud. He continues to release music with a message, drawing inspiration from the likes of J. Cole and Chance the Rapper, as well as newly established artists such as femdot. and Dominick Fike. Oblé has shaped his sound to fit the young world changer he aspires to be. With the intentionality in which he lives, there’s no doubt that there will be a lasting impact of his art.
