We wanna send you and your bae to see Jamila Woods!
With a velvety sound primarily rooted in soul and hip hop, Chicago’s Jamila Woods made her first big impact on the music scene in 2015 with her fan adored vocal features on Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment’s Surf album (Sunday Candy and Questions). Prior to her 2015 solo breakout, Jamila was one half of adventure soul band, M&O. The duo, which also included good friend Owen Hill, released two projects— including a feature from Chance the Rapper — and received exceptional praise from Okayplayer, Spin and Ebony Magazine.
With musical influences ranging from Erykah Badu and Imogen Heap to Kendrick Lamar and Kirk Franklin, Jamila’s plush sound is distinguished by the art of choral layering in addition to the hip-hop tradition of sampling and allusions. Utilizing the power of voice, poetry and writing, Jamila aims to create unapologetic music to soundtrack life for and about Black women around the world.
