Biography

Many artists spend their early careers trying to cultivate a unique brand of musical identity, but every so often a fully formed artist will emerge, in utter control of their identity and craft. Tennille Chalmers, known as 10ille, fits comfortably in the latter category. Her new EP, Candy Jams, is a hypnotizing set of atmospheric, retro-soul tracks that promises the steady growth of a gifted and significant new talent, one whose music evokes nostalgic familiarity while striking out on its own territory.

As a child, 10ille played bass clarinet and was part of a professional children's choir, studying opera arias and music theory and history. She attended the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia Arts High School on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Later, she met Antoine Reed and Evan Ingersoll, eventually called "The Cool Kids", and the three exchanged music throughout 2006. She moved to Chicago with them in summer of 2007.

10ille toured with Clipse and The Cool Kids in 2009, later performing at Lollapalooza with The Cool Kids in 2010-11, at New York's Afropunk Festival in 2010, and then at SXSW from 2010-12, both with The Cool Kids and as a solo act. She appeared on numerous Cool Kids tracks, including Jingling, Ass Made of Diamonds, Jump Rope, and Boomin'. Her discography includes collaborations with GLC, Pac Div, Action Bronson, Boldy James, Marz Lovejoy, Jack Davey, and Polyester the Saint.

But 10ille is just warming up. To date, her career as a singer/songwriter has attracted a loyal following resulting from a masterful use of captivating vocals and rhythmic melodies. 10ille has attributed this unmistakable style to the overarching influence of her Afro-Jamindian ancestry, as well as the diverse cultural climate of her upbringing in the Bronx, New York. But she as as humble as she is talented; on the topic of touring alone, she says "it is interesting to see people being interested in my thoughts". With her soulful voice and a flair for writing, we can surely expect to hear 10ille's thoughts a lot more in the future.
