Aquildawud: (real name Aquil Dantzler) is a soul and R&B artist from Philadelphia. With smooth, soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, the singer-songwriter’s music is honest and uplifting. After dropping two spontaneous singles in 2019 (‘For the Lovers’ and ‘Summer Day’), he’s set to release his debut project, ‘Born To Be Loved’, later this year. AquilDawud grew up in a household bursting with a love of music. As the eldest son of the famous neo-soul duo, Kindred The Family Soul, AquilDawud credits his parents with influencing his passion for music. His drive to develop as an artist was ignited in high school, when he began collaborating with rapper Tanner Hicks. Alongside their friends they performed at open mics, recorded original music and created music videos. Since then, AquilDawud has performed live across the US. Inspired by iconic soul artists like Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Musiq Soulchild, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, and members of his own musical family, AquilDawud sees music as the ultimate form of self-expression.
