Get To Know Cilla K.

05/05/2010

On the independant/underground soul scene ‘solo female’ must be by far the most oversaturated group. This isn’t neccessarily a bad thing, it just means that to get noticed you need to have a little extra something.

Cilla K is an artist who, for me at least, has that extra something. Listening to her album Fine Line for the 5th or 6th time I can’t quite put my finger on what ‘it’ is, however from the album intro, right through to the last track, there is something refreshing about her fusion of RnB, Soul, and Electronica.

Born in Guadeloupe but now residing in NY, this vocalist/beat maker has a whole host of musical and cultural influences on which to draw and it definitely shows on her very acomplished debut. She has worked with some of the writers/producers behind some of the biggest soul/RnB acts of the last 10-15 years, such as Lauryn Hill, Joss Stone, Floetry, D’Angelo and Jill Scott.

Check out the title track from her debut below and hear more on her myspace page.
