His music has received radio airplay from the likes of KCRW and Gilles Peterson’s BBC 6 program. Tillman’s new album, Silk Noise Reflex, introduces a new sound to today’s R&B and soul lexicon: Silk Noise. It’s sleek and polished, but human and feeling. The mood is effortless, though seems achieved through some sort of songwriting secret. The variety of influences is easy to hear, but how they work together so well is complex.
A meeting of jazz, hip-hop, soul, R&B, psychedelia, and so much more, its cohesiveness is a testament to Tillman’s songwriting prowess and his vocal skill. Credit is also due to Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Garbage, Yellow Ostrich), who mixed the record at Tiny Telephone in Oakland; mastering engineer Carlos Arredondo (Thao & Mirah, Deerhoof); and executive producer Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs, Sister Suvi). Tours with tUnE-yArDs and Wild Child have brought Tillman around North America. The artist looks forward to bringing Silk Noise Reflex around the world. Rooted in earnest artistry and love, Tillman’s timeless sound promises a brilliant future ahead. Read more on Last.fm.
