about

Bilal’s unique vocal style has made him a commodity within the musical community. The evidence is in the number of featured appearances he’s racked up on our favorite, notable artist’s tracks over the course of a decade and a half. It’s difficult to comprehend, though, why he’s not a mainstream, household name. His desire to maintain his artistic integrity plays a part of course, in addition to a fickle market that advocates popularity over originality. To further argue the point that more recognition is due, The Philly Phenom is more than he appears; not only is he a vocalist, he’s also a songwriter, musician and producer. Talented and instilled with a desire to create diverse music that transcends genres, Bilal is a force to be reckoned with.
With 5 albums over 14 years, he’s at a one album almost every 3 year average, but the staggering number of features and productions he’s churned out is staggering. Press play and observe as Bilal blesses each track, like a chameleon, with the prefect hue to complement the soundscape provided. It’s been a true honor compiling and researching this mix as I have learned a tremendous amount about Bilal Oliver and have developed a healthy respect for him. I hope you will as well.
