Out of Chicago’s bustlin’ music scene come R&B/soul duo Milo & Otis.
In an era dominated by manufactured noise, M&O aka Milo & Otis have carved out a musical haven for listeners seeking an authentic respite. The Washington Post described their debut album as “mold shattering” in a review, while their fan base continues to swell past the span of their Chicago roots. Jamila Woods (“Milo”—vocals, loop pedal, poetry) and Owen Hill (“Otis” — bass guitar, imagination, production) are the two behind this earthy sound, which harks back to the heyday of R&B with a blend of what can only be labeled “Adventure Soul.” Adventure Soul is a road trip for your mind, a whizzing subway car for your heart, and sometimes even a party limo for your tuckus.
Their sound is like someone else’s heartbeat when they give you a hug.
oooh & here.
Opening with the equally groovy duo of Hana Elion ’15 and Sam Wheeler ’15.
Date: Friday, April 18th
