Casino M8trix Boom Box Stage

Jessica Lá Rel is a recording artist, songwriter and storyteller from Chicago. Her “cinematic soul” sound can be likened to an orchestra traveling from the south side of Chicago to Ghana. Known for her soaring vocals and thrilling live performances, Lá Rel releases her LP, War Love, later this year.

Her 2016 debut EP, Four Freedoms, ranked #12 on the UK Soul Charts, and landed her opportunities to perform for Oprah Winfrey, US Representative John Lewis and Reverend Jesse Jackson. Lá Rel’s most recent music videos have gained national attention as they inspire empathy around the issue of police brutality and advocates for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning. The Huffington Post commented that Lá Rel “uses her song and video to provide an anthem for the contemporary movement for Black rights. She is a rising superstar with incredible potential, an artist who inspires, and someone that we should all be looking out for.”

Lá Rel has opened for Melanie Fiona, Luke James, Omarion and Angelique Kidjo and has been featured at multiple venues/festivals in California, Atlanta, Washington DC and Chicago. She is most known for her soaring vocals and thrilling live performances.
