Bilal

USA (Philadelphia)

Biography

Whilst Bilal Oliver is classed as neo-soul, it is his vocal abilities that tend to dominate any conversation about him. He sings persuasively in freeform and falsetto; in funk, jazz and soul styles. However it is also the hip-hop and rap genres that have typified his music over the years. Dr. Dre produced some of his 2001 album 1st Born Second and J Dilla worked with him on an, ultimately shelved, second album project. There is a lot of anticipation about the third album, Air Tight's Revenge. Fans who fall in love with Bilal fall in hard. (Dour Festival 2010)
