Jamila Woods

Singer, Songwriter & Poet
With a velvety sound 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).​​With musical influences ranging from Erykah Badu to Imogen Heap, Jamila’s plush sound is distinguished by the art of choral layering in addition to the hip hop tradition of sampling and allusions.​ ​In July 2016, Woods released Heavn, her first full-length solo project​, ​​which focuses on black girlhood, Chicago, and​ ​the city/world we aspire to live in​. The album​ ​has​ ​received enthusiastic reviews from​ ​MTV, Nylon, and Noisey, among many other​s. ​
