I'm DeLila Black
I make music, I also make video clips, and performance art. I was born in Port Au Prince, Haiti. Immigrated to New York and now live in London.
I've been developing my own Alt-Americana sound, exploring what I call Electro-Mountain, Country-Noire, Punk-Country, Afro-Billy, Roots-Rodeo-Rocknroll. I also do some genre jumping, mashups, mix tapes and traditional.
I look for cultural overlaps and explore them.
I have had the honour of working with the late, great Mr. Tom Paley.
My highest profile performances have been at London 2012 Olympics and an audience with HRH Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in attendance.
I make 'video shots'. Performance clips that convey a mood or situation. They are snapshots of ideas I would like to develop further. I'm thrilled that legendary producer, Mr. Tony Visconti loves my work. I hope you will like it too. (Here is what he had to say)
I support myself by working at my local community centre. I create all costumes, and all work involved myself. If you would like to help support my work please check out my iTUNES or my PATREON PAGE.
Your generosity goes a long way in helping to keep doing what I do. I appreciate it more than you can know.
Thank you for visiting.
