In 2000, we made it our impassioned mission for the world to find out exactly who Jill Scott was and is––and OMG––did they ever. Hidden Beach Recordings is still proud and honored to have introduced the quintessential voice of Philadelphia Neo-Soul.
When Jill emerged onto the scene, Philadelphia was amidst a musical renaissance that spilled-over into every Black community around the country––and eventually––the world. With a voice so robust and confident, there was no denying Jill nor her messages of female and cultural empowerment.
In her perfect, multiplatinum, 19-track debut, Jill embodied everything a new millennium black woman is––strong, beautiful, bold, classy, and edgy when necessary. Each track of pure poetry was imbued with power and elegance. Hidden Beach raises a toast to the talent and wonderment of Jill Scott––the crowning jewel who would set the creative bar for our next 20 years and beyond. We love you, Jill.
