Biografía

R&B artist, poet and activist Jamila Woods (born in Chicago on October 6, 1989) crafts a socially conscious soul-streaked sound in thrall to poetry, Black musical history, Black feminism and a deep love of her city. After receiving a BA in Africana Studies and Theater & Performance Studies from the prestigious Brown University, Woods was appointed artistic director of Young Chicago Authors, facilitating poetry workshops for young people and helping to organize Louder Than a Bomb, the world's largest youth poetry slam festival. Her musical journey began in soul-pop duo M&O fka Milo and Otis, releasing two albums, The Joy (2012) and Almost Us (2014), before a collaboration with Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment for track “Sunday Candy” from 2015 album Surf put her name on the map. A collaboration with Chance the Rapper on "Blessings" from 2016 album Coloring Book followed and that same year Woods assembled a crew of her fellow Chicagoans, including Chance the Rapper, Noname, Saba, PeterCottontale, Kweku Collins and oddCouple, for debut solo album HEAVN, released on US indie rock imprint Jagjaguwar. Following that album in May 2019, she released the album, LEGACY! LEGACY! From Jean-Michel Basquiat and James Baldwin to Eartha Kitt, each track is named after a Black icon.
