As one of Jamaica’s most powerful voices right now, who can flow and sing effortlessly in the same breath, Lila Iké is gaining attention at home and abroad with her distinctive delivery, old-school sensibilities and modern-day swagger. She released her debut 7-track EP The ExPerience in May 2020 to critical acclaim (via RCA Records in conjunction with Protoje’s label and artist management company In.Digg.Nation Collective facilitated through Six Course Records) and is prepping for her first full length album in 2023.

Since the release of her EP, Lila’s latest string of singles touch on real life experiences plaguing her own community. From child molestation on “Batty Rider Shorts” and street justice on the remix of “Thy Will” feat. Skillibeng in 2021 to self love on “True Love” and crime and gun violence on “Wanted” in 2022, these topics carry weight across the globe.

In June 2022, Apple Music spotlighted Lila Iké for The Future of Black Music campaign. Her accolades in 2020 included a British MOBO Awards nomination for Best Reggae Act and recognition as SPIN’s Most Interesting Artists To Watch and one of BBC 1xtra’s Hot For 2020 Artists. She also joined the late night stage on A Late Show #PlayatHome with Stephen Colbert with Protoje and her NPR Tiny Desk At Home has raked in over 3 million+ views.

Before the global pandemic in 2019, Lila embarked on her first solo Europoe tour, touching Rototom Sunsplash (Spain) and Sole DXB Festival (Dubai), and joining Protoje on tour and major stages including Reggae Sumfest and BRIC’s Celebrate Brooklyn. In 2022, she is touring across Europe and North America to perform hits from her 2020 EP The Experience for the very first time. This year, she has already graced reggae’s top festival stages including Cali Vibes (U.S.), Cali Roots (U.S.) and Summerjam (Germany) and will join Protoje on tour this Fall.
