Solange, Texas’ sensational R&B and pop artist is bringing her signature sounds to the Hearst Greek Theatre!
Solange Piaget Knowles was born in Houston in 1986 and is a singer, songwriter, producer, model, and actress. She’s Beyonce’s sister and her musical style can be best described as a blend of R&B, funk, soul, pop, and indie pop (a subgenre of alternative/indie rock originating in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and differing from indie rock to the extent that it’s more melodic, less abrasive, and relatively angst free). She’s had a stellar career with 3 studio albums, 8 music videos, 1 extended play, and 14 singles. She’s received many accolades including an American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Award (for Top R&B/Hip Hop Song) and a Grammy Award (for Best R&B Performance). She’s also been nominated for a BET Centric Award, 2 Soul Train Music Awards (for Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist and Centric Certified), 2 NME Awards (for Dancefloor Anthem and Best International Female Artist), a Brit Award (for International Female Solo Artist), and 5 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Awards (for Outstanding Album, Outstanding Song, Outstanding Female Artist, Outstanding Duo or Group, and Outstanding Music Video).
