Morning Shift

The soul jazz sounds of Lili K

Chicago songstress Lili K. began performing in church and grade school and started writing her own music at the ripe old age of 10. She’s worked with a few Chicago hip hop artists including Chance the Rapper, but she’s also carved out her own sound that is best described jazzy and soulful. Lili K. draws inspiration from Ella Fitzgerald, Erykah Badu and Sharon Jones. While she has a reputation for quirky energetic performances…she also lays down the groove in the studio and her debut album Ruby, hits the street on April 21. She gives us a taste on the Morning Shift.
