Australian Tour January 2018
Chicago based singer, poet & Chance the Rapper collaborator, Jamila Woods, is making her way out to Australia this coming January. Woods will perform at The Basement in Sydney on top of an appearance at Sugar Mountain Festival.
Jamila is an artist of substance creating music crafted with a sturdy foundation of her passions and influences. True and pure in its construction and execution, her music is the best representation of Jamila herself: strong in her roots, confident in her ideas, and attuned to the people, places and things shaping her world.
Jamila Woods’ cultural lineage – from her love of Lucille Clifton’s poetry to cherished letters from her grandmother to the infectious late 80s post-punk of The Cure – structure the progressive, delicate and minimalist soul of HEAVN, her debut solo album released in the summer of 2016 on Closed Sessions. “It’s like a collage process, ”she says. “It’s very enjoyable to me to take something I love and mold it into something new. ”A frequent guest vocalist in the hip-hop, jazz and soul world, Jamila has emerged as a once- in-a-generation voice on her soul-stirring debut.
