“I have found a way to heal people through music…”

Inspired by his mixed-cultural upbringing, this American-born Nigerian artist who goes by Industry Standard aka Indy, is truly a multi-faceted performer and an internationally charted artist.

This singer, songwriter, co-producer, pianist and dancer was born January 17, 1989 in Albany, Georgia. His roots stem from Igarra, Nigeria which is located in Edo state. His mother sang in the church choir and his father was a skilled guitarist and trumpeter who influenced Indy’s musical gifts by surrounding him with traditional afrobeats musicians like Fela Kuti, King Sunny Adé, and Lagbaja.

Indy describes his melodies as uplifting mid to hi-tempo dance songs. As a board-certified psychiatrist, he draws inspiration for his songwriting from his therapeutic work, helping to shine a light on the struggles of his patients and others facing similar challenges. What Indy values most about performing is the meaningful impact his music has on his fans.
