Jill Scott

Message  Marvin Straight le Sam 15 Sep - 13:56

Scott grew up in the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was raised by her mother, Joyce Scott, and her grandmother. She indicated in an interview with Jet Magazine that she had a happy childhood and was "very much a loved child".Scott attended the Philadelphia High School for Girls and after graduating, attended Temple University while simultaneously working two jobs. She studied secondary education for three years and had planned on becoming a high school English teacher, but after spending time as a teacher's aide, Scott became disillusioned with the teaching profession and dropped out of school.

Prior to her breakthrough in the music industry, Scott worked at a variety of jobs, including a number of retail positions and stints at a construction site and an ice cream parlor. She remains close to her mother and grandmother, nicknamed "Blue Babe", resides in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, and is divorcing her husband of five years, Lyzel Williams, who is a graphic artist and DJ, after twelve years together. (Scott wrote and recorded the song "He Loves Me (Lyzel in E Flat)" about Williams.)


Career
Scott began her performing career as a spoken word artist, appearing at live poetry readings to perform her work. She was eventually discovered by Amir "?uestlove" Thompson of The Roots. Questlove invited her to join the band in the studio, and the collaboration resulted in a co-writing credit for Scott for the song, "You Got Me." In 2000, Erykah Badu and The Roots won the Grammy for best rap performance by a duo or group for "You Got Me." Subsequently, Scott collaborated with Eric Benet, Will Smith, and Common, and broadened her performing experience by touring Canada in a production of the Broadway musical Rent.

Scott was the first artist signed to Steve McKeever's 'Hidden Beach Recordings' label. Her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1 was released in 2000. She experienced some chart success and notice with the single "A Long Walk", which eventually earned her a Grammy nomination in early 2003 for Best Female Vocal Performance. Scott lost that award, but won a 2005 Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative R&B Performance for "Cross My Mind." The live album, Experience:Jill Scott 826+, was released November 2001. Scott's second full-length album, Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2, followed in 2004. Recently, Scott was prominently featured on hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco's 2006 single "Daydreaming" which also appearrf on a new Scott collection called Collaborations on January 30, 2007. The set servef as "an appetizer" for her next studio album entitled, The Real Thing, which will release in summer of 2007.

Scott continues to write poetry; a compilation volume of her poems, The Moments, The Minutes, The Hours, was published and released by St. Martin's Press in April 2005.

In October on the twelth, Scott will star in the upcoming Tyler Perry movie, Why Did I Get Married?.

Beyoncé currently pays tribute to Scott on her The Beyoncé Experience world tour by singing "He Loves Me" at the end of "Dangerously in Love". This has given a worldwide audience exposure to Scott's music.


Vocal profile
Scott is a talented vocalist who infused jazz, R&B, spoken word, and hip hop among other genres to create a distinct style that many refer to as neo soul. Her vocal capabilities are so rich that a reviewer on Pop Matter, referring to Scott's vocal ability stated, 'Scott draws on her upper register recalling the artistry of the late "songbird" Minnie Riperton and Deniece Williams.' The same reviewer in another article stated, 'The song evokes the artistry of Minnie Riperton as Scott sings in the upper register that makes its only appearances on Who is Jill Scott? on the teasing "I Think It's Better" and "Show Me." Scott has "a very rare facility to hit notes in the sixth and seventh octave, as displayed on songs such as 'Gimme' where she hits a D6, and on 'Spring Summer Feeling' where she hits a C7 note with full vibrato."


Other appearances
Her live performance in 2004 with members of The Roots, which also included backing a performance by Erykah Badu, is featured in Dave Chappelle's 2006 concert film, Dave Chappelle's Block Party.

In 2004, Scott expanded her acting resume appearing in several episodes of season four of UPN's "Girlfriends" playing Donna, a love interest to main character, William Dent. She also appeared in the Showtime movie Cavedwellers, starring Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.


The Real Thing (2007)
Scott is currently working on and will be releasing The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3 on September 25, 2007. A clip of the title track was released on a bonus disc from Hidden Beach Records and included with Scott's album, Collaborations. The lead single from The Real Thing, "Hate on Me", gained airplay in May 2007 with a video released in mid-July.

Ce serait bien d'avoir une bio en français Laughing Nan je rigole, au moins je pourrais parfaire mon anglais ainsi... Rien à ajouter, Jill Scott est personellement la meilleure artiste Nu-Soul (Avec d'Angelo) et est à l'origine du plus grand disque de tous les temps (perso de nouveau) Who Is Jill Scott ?

Encore un grand nom de la Nu-Soul, Jill Scott est une artiste très talentueuse, sans doute la plus talentueuse du genre avec Erykah Badu...
Son premier album, Who Is Jill Scott est pour moi un momument de la Nu-soul...

S'il y avait une âme charitable pour me dire de quel artiste et de quelle chanson Jill Scott a t-elle samplé pour enregistrer le titre Rasool ?? Smile Il est aussi utilisé dans le Hip-Hop puisqu'il a été repris par Raekwon sur le fabuleux OB4CL (North Star). Merci d'avance.
