A frequent guest vocalist in the hip-hop, jazz and soul world with the likes of Chance The Rapper, Macklemore, and Noname, Jamila Woods has emerged as a powerful, once-in-a-generation soul and R&B singer-songwriter and poet with her debut solo album HEAVN, which draws from influences as varied as Lucille Clifton’s poetry to the infectious late ‘80s post-punk of The Cure. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, 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. Please join us for an evening of beautiful music and celebrating Blackness.”
