Voice of the Soul

Fellow Music Lovers!!


An amazingly good day to you!

Thanks so much for visiting my website. I hope you find it enlightening, uplifting and Soulful!


I have several projects going right now, but briefly I'll just say that there's always something wonderful going on in my world and that would include some new original music compositions, new books, and a brand new band! This band expresses and honors the Soul, the Spirit, new thought and new ways of being in this world of rapid and exciting change! Can't you feel it in the air?

Ayanna Hobson

Jazz Blues Vocalist & Teacher

As a vocalist/performer, I love performing but I also have a style of teaching others, singers (professional and non-professional), speakers, actors and non-singers (I personally believe that anyone that can speak can sing) how to use their own voices as a means of Soulful, truthful means of expression and healing. Oh yeah, the human Voice runs deep!


So check it out and check it often! Peace!



National recording artist, Ayanna Hobson, has recently returned to San Diego and is currently singing jazz, R&B, blues, and Soul Music in local clubs with some of San Diego's finest musicians.


Musical Theater is another area that you'll find her portraying some of the Jazz Vocalist greats such as Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald in theater productions.  She has toured nationally & internationally and is a graduate of the Don Campbell, "Power of Sound" training in San Francisco and she studied with and performed with such internationally known musicians/teachers as Eddie Harris, Daniel Jackson, the flautist, James Newton and Phil Moore in LA.


Her performance repertoire consists of her original compositions, urban, progressive & standard jazz/blues, soul and gospel.  Her musical diet consisted of many of the greats such as, B.B. King, Billie Holiday, Etta James, Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye and Sarah Vaughn to name a few.  Her powerful vocal style, with an Operatic 4.5 Octave range, has often been compared to that of Cleo Laine and Sarah Vaughn, her jazzy vocal stylings to that of Abbey Lincoln and Betty Carter.  Her powerful Blues deliveries to that of KoKo Taylor!
