Solange Knowles (DJ Set)
Perceptions are not always based in reality, and nobody knows this better than me. With the release of my sophomore album, SoL-AngeL & the Hadley Street Dreams (Music World Entertainment/Geffen Records), I am ready to have every listener step into my very personal field of dreams, minus the preconceived notions.
When you look up the word biography, the Webster dictionary defines this as a written history of someone's life. Well, I figured no one would be able to tell this story better than I could, which is why this won't be a traditional artist bio.
My life as a performer started very early on. Classically trained in ballet, jazz, tap and modern dance, I stepped in, unexpectedly, as a back up dancer when a Destiny's Child dancer suddenly had to leave the tour. This position gave me the opportunity to travel all across the World to places such as Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and Mexico. It was then I developed a deep sense of culture, style, and artistic influences.
