"I'm a divine being, seeking to raise the consciousness of other divine beings, and it is my hope, that through my creative offerings, others will be reminded of their own divinity."
Solé began her professional career as a hardcore hip-hop artist by attracting attention in the summer of 1999 with her appearance on J.T. Money's hit single "Who Dat" which reached #1 on the Rap Singles Chart, remained on the charts for 8 weeks and won "Rap Single of the Year" at the 1999 Billboard Music Awards. This was followed by the release of her debut album "Skin Deep" on DreamWorks Records in September of 1999 which achieved gold status and garnered her a nomination for "Rap Artist of the Year" at the Billboard Music Awards. She also went on to win several ASCAP Music awards that same year.
Feeling disenchanted with the music industry, some of the lyrics she was writing and images she was portraying, after only one full-length album, Solé requested to be released from her record label, and her sophomore album, "Fly Away" was never released. She no longer wanted to be a part of the promotion and glorification of the destructive messaging and programming that was being pushed and promoted, especially in "urban" music.
During her almost 20 year hiatus, Solé embarked upon a spiritual journey and began evolving into the woman she is today. Not only is Solé a hip-hop artist, she is also a healing wellness practitioner, offering Sacred Medicine through music and various other healing modalities. She shares her offerings through her business Devi Tribe Wellness, as a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, Mystical Dance Teacher, Black Belt in Kung Fu,Sound Healer, Clinical Herbalist, Sacred Medicine Woman Wellness Coach, Belly Dancer, Tantrika, Inner Shakti Pre Natal Yoga Teacher, Birth Doula, Red Tent Facilitator, Water Priestess and has a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies.
Her highly anticipated return to music is guided by a desire to offer music that is empowering and inspiring, reflective of the path that she embarked upon when she left the industry. Her return was ushered in with a feature on the single "SocMed Digital Heroin" on Public Enemy's 30th-anniversary album "Nothing Is Quick In The Desert". She was also featured on "Naal Naachna" by UK based Bhangra artist Jassi Sidhu. "ENCODED", the long awaited follow up to her freshman project, "Skin Deep", was released September 28, 2019 and is available now on all major digital and streaming platforms.
