DALILA’s Soulful New Existential Funk


DALILA is an emerging independent singer/songwriter who made her professional solo recording debut in 2021 with a string of successful singles. Those songs introduced a versatile and talented artist from Akron, Ohio who comes to the music world with decades of experience behind her. She was singing by the age of 4 and writing songs by 8. By the time she was 16 the singer had a catalog of over 400 tunes.

Since the release of her debut single “Emotion” in April of last year, DALILA has connected with fans around the world. Popular tracks like “Goodbye to the Old Me” and “Dance it Out” count their streaming numbers in the tens of thousands. Regular readers of The Static Dive will remember DALILA from her collaboration “Changing Seasons” with fellow Akron musician, Zhake.

“Who Are We Meant To Be” is the brand new single from DALILA, released worldwide via all major streaming services on August 10, 2022. Rolling on a slow and funky hip-hop groove, the track is a chilled mix of lo-fi indie-pop feels and jazz-hop vibes. A mellow jazz guitar rides that beat as syncopated percussion adds a bit of latin flare. DALILA steps to the mic with some existential r&b poetry and a soulful reminder that we all deserve love. In the bridge the singer breaks it down for a sweet personal spoken word message.
