“Chiiild uses music to tell stories about diversity, ask questions about humanity, and unify people over shared personal experiences. Taking influence from artists as diverse as D’Angelo, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd, and Marvin Gaye, he’s created an expansive yet timeless sound that is uniquely genre-bending.”

- UDISCOVERMUSIC

 

“It’s worth experiencing Chiiild’s mesmerizing and mellow electro-soul”

- Nylon

 

"Chiiild's … emotive dialogue has never felt so tangible.”

- Popdust

 

“Chiiild has captured our attention… proving to be one of the most exciting voices of this moment

- Variance

 

“[Chiiild’s] lyrics are beautifully unconventional.”

- Okayplayer

 

“Sonically, Hope for Sale is all over the place in the best way possible.”

- Exclaim!

 

“This sense of familiarity makes Chiiild’s music both soothing and relaxing, and it’s in this pocket of day-dreaminess that Chiiild’s music often also finds a psychedelic element-- a grooviness”

- HotNewHipHop

Chiiild has made a name for himself occupying a space typically not representative of Black artists within the alt/pop genre. Chiiild uses music to tell stories about diversity, ask questions about humanity, and unify people over shared personal experiences. Taking influence from music as diverse as D'Angelo, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd, and Marvin Gaye, he’s created an expansive timeless sound that is uniquely genre-bending yet still somehow reminiscent of something you’ve heard or felt, before.
