Hilary Mwelwa b. Lusaka, Zambia, Africa.
Hil St. Soul, originally, came to the fore in London on Jazz FM through her fine acoustic version of Stevie Wonder’s evergreen ‘Til You Come Back To Me, That’s What I’m Gonna Do’).
Hilary moved to London at an early age from her hometown of Lusaka in Zambia.
During her late teens she studied biochemistry at the University Of London.
A decision to move into the music business soon paid dividends, as the aforementioned tune slowly garnered interest in the singer.
Hilary landed a deal at Dome Records in the U.K. and an album followed entitled ‘Soul Organic’.
By this time Hilary had enrolled the services of Victor Redwood-Sawyerr, who was once with the group Blak Twang.
Blues and Soul magazine voted Hil St Soul the best newcomer that year, an accolade that was previously attributed to artists such as Tashan.
Since the initial release Hilary and Victor have toured with many artists in Europe and the U.K. garnering a reputation as a performer and songwriter.
In 2002, a follow up album, entitled ‘Copasetic And Cool’ was released and included the excellent tune ‘Pieces’, a song she performed on the Jools Holland Show on BBC2 in November of that year.
