 Hilary Mwelwa the voice that is Hil St. Soul (pronounced Hill Street Soul). The striking Zambian born Hilary Mwelwa burst onto the UK music scene in the early 2000s and has not looked back. She has shared the stage with D'Angelo, Kelis, Macy Gray, and Angie Stone and collaborated with Incognito and Noel Gourdin. Her infectious grooves, poetic and self-empowering lyrics are a hallmark of her soulful, sensuous, and hypnotic vocals. Born in Lusaka, Zambia, Hilary Mwelwa relocated to London with her family at age five. As a child, she adopted her father’s love of music, as their home was immersed with the sounds of traditional Zambian music along with American R&B/Soul icons Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder. As a graduate of London’s Westminster University, Hilary had early ambitions to go into the science field and earned a degree in biological sciences.  Hil St. Soul delivers the kind of music that promises to stand the test of time. Blessed with an intensely rich, soul-drenched, and honey-toned alto and armed with serious lyrical and compositional sensibilities, Mwelwa's 2006 SOULidified showcased her powerful chops and soul-stirring vocals and highlighted the steamy and sexy duo with Dwele, “Baby Come Over," and the endearing “Sweet On You.” Black Rose followed in 2008 featuring the catchy anthem "Don't Forget The Ghetto" and the dreamy "Sweetest Days." She was brought up on a diet of Soul, R&B, Gospel, and Pop music from an early age. Her personal motto is live life to the fullest and to spend your time doing what you love. You have to enjoy each day as if it were your last.”
