HIL ST SOUL
Friday 21st September

Describing her influences as “a diet of soul, R&B, Gospel and pop music”, Hil St Soul has already released five studio albums, showing a career trajectory ranging from her debut Soul Organic through to later albums such as Souldified and her latest record, Release, which scored glowing reviews.
Hil St Soul was born Hilary Mwelwa in Zambia, relocating with her family to London at age five. The singer has cited her father’s love of music as a key factor in pursuing a musical career of her own, as he would often fill their home with the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. While a student at University considering a career in science, Hilary started to realise her musical interests were taking over from her studies, and after taking a year out and releasing a demo, she has never looked back!
The musician has performed to packed crowds at some of the biggest music festivals in the world, including the Glastonbury Festival, the Drum Rhythm Festival and the Capital Jazz Festival. With vocals USA Today describes as “always enticing” and The Boston Globe calls “beguiling”, Hil St Soul’s musical career can only go from strength to strength.
