In the past 10 years, the DC area has seriously churned out some off the hottest & in demand singers on the indie soul & electro scene including the of Sy Smith, Bilal Salaam, Deborah Bond & Muhsinah to name just a few. That tradition continues with the entry of B.jamelle. You may have heard the songstress on recents works of Diamond District & Mello Music Group member yU. She describes herself as a "writer first, singer third, and dreamer in between". Her sultry tones can flow so effortlessly over the simplest to the most complex of beats & rhythms while locking the listener in to her honest lyricism. Each month since November, she's released (& teased lol) with gems that vary from headnodding soul to topsy turvy & hypnotic electro grooves. Each song features production from some of the DMV's elite including Slimkat 78, Mr. D Turner & 00Genesis all available as free downloads on her bandcamp page. Hopefully there's a full project in the works. Until then, dig in!
