UW Hip Hop Artist in Residency Program Opening Reception feat. Tilla

April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Please join the Office of Multicultural Arts Initiatives (OMAI) in welcoming Tilla to campus April 8– April 11 through the Hip-Hop Arts Residency Program (HHARP). Doors at 5:30 pm – We will have a short welcome followed by a 20 min set by members of the band. Refreshments will be served.
The band Tilla formed after Taylor Scott (lead vocal) and Nathan France (producer, sax player) organized a writing retreat in New Orleans in early 2022. While the band shapeshifts for each project and performance, its members include Eric Newble (lead vocal), Morgan Ryser (pianist), Evan Ryser (vocalist), Andy Jones (bass) and Jalen McCullough (drums).
Their songs layer thoughtful lyricism with timeless analog sensibilities and contemporary electronic innovations. Their work blends and bends genres and conventions by stretching across Blues, Soul, R&B, Dance, Jazz, and Gospel.
Tilla is currently booking shows in support of their Debut EP, ‘Term of Endearment’ (2023), which is a 5-track EP that is full to the brim with spirit, character, care, happy accidents, and so much more. But at its core the idea is simple–it sounds like a room of friends singing their hearts out. The band’s distinct multi-vocal harmonies engage audiences in an intimate encounter where the song is the room.
Free event.
Tilla performance at 7 PM.
Time: 6 – 8 pm (doors at 5:30 pm).
