Biography

A vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Aretta Hill mixes Electro, Neo and Classic Soul, Blues, and Jazz--all capped off with a chilled-out vibe. Her vocals are ambient and layered as she captures the same vibrant spirit of Ledisi, Jill Scott, Bilal, Erykah Badu, and Georgia Ann Muldrow.

Aretta has not only tapped into the art of music through her vocal ability; she has also taken up several musical instruments throughout her musical journey -- drums, bass guitar, and keyboard. She is also known for her dynamic production, arrangement, and writing skills for her own projects and for a variety of other artists.

Aretta has had several career milestones - touring with Eric Benet as a background vocalist, recording demo songs with Kelvin Wooten, and receiving professional guidance under the renown “Spanky” Alford and brothers Victor and Reginald Wooten. Recently, opening for Grammy nominated neo-soul songstress N’Dambi is another career highlight for Aretta as well. Her debut EP, simply titled, "Aretta Hill", is still receiving domestic and international acclaim and her previously released single entitled "Gurly On" is her anthem to woman to love and invest in themselves. She recently released her latest EP “VOID” which is the precursor to her full-length album set for release in Summer 2013. Producing, writing, arranging, and performing her own music gives her versatility like no other. Rooted in good music such as Neo-Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel, Jazz, and Rock, this soulful artist embraces all genres and strives to join them all together in perfect harmony.
