Dr Fabola is a Manchester-based singer-songwriter and author whose upbeat acoustic soul is laced with rootsy folk, world music, and jazz. His intricate fingerpicking and soft, soulful vocals combine effortlessly into a sweet feel-good vibe that has drawn comparisons to Jack Johnson, Tracy Chapman, and Nina Simone.
He strives to make meaningful, heartfelt music that conveys all sorts of experiences, both on a personal and societal level. The common theme in his music is one of compassion, emotion, and meaning. His music is well suited for fans of Tallest Man on Earth, Asa, Passenger, Tracy Chapman, Jason Mraz, Michael Kiwanuka, Otis Redding, Madeleine Peyroux, and Nina Simone.
He obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2018 from the University of St Andrews, with contributions to the technical literature, digital installations exhibited in 9 national museums across 3 continents, and an 80,000-word thesis on leveraging Virtual Reality and immersive technologies in public learning contexts.
