Jill Scott About
She is an artist with an abiding, deep commitment to lyrical honesty and musical integrity. Simply put, if Jill Scott feels it, she writes and sings it. While vivid imageries, metaphor analogies are her stock in trade, there’s no pretense, no hiding. She’s upfront, in-your-face always real, using her own distinctive poetry to breathe life into words, digging inside to bring forth the accompanying emotion. It is that authenticity that has endeared Jill Scott to everyday music buyers who hear what she’s saying through her music and respond according. Folks who know the rough and tumble of life, love right, love wrong, passion misspent, passion fulfilled, lonely nights and empty days and everything in between declare, ‘Yeah, girl!,’ ‘Go ‘head on!’ and ‘I feel ya’.
So much has been said, so many lyrics sang. And Jill continues to be a mainstay on the music front and time flies.
It is hard to fathom almost 15 years have passed since the release of her debut album, the monumental and ground breaking Who Is Jill Scott?” Words & Sounds Vol. 1.
