Cobi – No Way Out
Astounding talent and brilliant singer/songwriter, COBI, debuts his new single “No Way Out,” today. The single showcases a host of powerful emotions for fans to relate to, and further demonstrates his range as a songwriter.
COBI’s “No Way Out” is cathartic, raw, and authentic. The track showcases his mesmerizing vocals, as well as his vulnerability that he shoulders like so many other people.
In his own words, COBI allows us a glimpse into his mind as he describes the thoughts that led to “No Way Out”: “Sometimes life choices pile up and become an avalanche, burying us under a mountain of our own mistakes. Struggles with addiction, mental illness, and depression, often lead to scorched relationships and overwhelming loneliness. “No Way Out” is an expression of being trapped in a hole of your own digging, hoping someone will come along and pull you out.”
In this soulful and powerful ballad, COBI’s smooth vocals and melodic piano playing serve as a rallying cry for anyone who feels like they are trapped by their own struggles. The track’s somber lyrics describe the feeling of being ‘buried alive’ while providing a sophisticated production brought to life by background instrumentals, providing fans with an emotional musical experience.
COBI will be taking his talents on the road to play a special series of intimate shows all taking place at W Hotels across the USA including stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, New York City, Aspen, and Atlanta.

Following his two-part EP, Songs from the Ashes, COBI has gained continuous praise from outlets such as Billboard, Huffington Post, NPR, Interview Magazine, and many others. Providing an innovative bridge between the blues and soul genres, COBI is a voice that needs to be heard. A Minnesota native, COBI was honored when Prince’s musical director, Morris Hayes, embraced the opportunity to perform together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This performance led to major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Firefly, BottleRock, Hangout and Electric Forest. Such immediate acclaim allowed COBI to make a name for himself instantly, and solidify him as a force to be reckoned with.
COBI’s solo music journey began in 2016, with the release of his debut single “Don’t You Cry For Me”. It caught the ear of industry veteran Lyor Cohen who immediately signed COBI to his label 300 Entertainment. The track reached #1 on Spotify’s Most Viral Chart (World), rose to the top of SiriusXM’s Spectrum Chart and has reached nearly 60 million streams to date on Spotify. Following his last single, “Island In My Mind”, COBI is solidifying the power of his vocals with his latest single “No Way Out,” and is certainly on the upward climb.
