Sol - 2020
Over the past few years Sol had been working hard trying to break into the hip-hop scene. Born and raised in Seattle, the 23 year old Universty of Washington grad is now moving up North American charts with his debut release “Yours Truly”. His “Dear Friends” EP gained him some momentum in 2011 and his 2012 album debuted strongly at #1 on the iTunes hip-hop chart.
With his down to earth style, Sol delivers meaningful hip-hop paired with soulful, uplifting beats. If anything, Sol is an artist on the rise. His credits include opening or shared performances with Wu-Tang Clan, Mike Posner and Seattle’s Macklemore. I hope there’s more to come from Sol. He certainly seems to think so: “Let’s get it straight/I’m on the rise/And I can only trust me, myself and I.”
