MusicMafiaUK presents Roanoke City's iLL-iteracy

Each born in Roanoke “Star City”,VA. iLL-iteracy’s members developed affinities for music early in their lives. Whether it was jam sessions in the basement or rocking the crowd at their high school football games, their talent and love for all things instrumental was obvious.

Hailing from Kent, UK, rising singer, songwriter, and producer Rudie Edwards’ wild hair and sultry ensemble attest to her strikingly soulful voice and magnetic music. Equally obsessed with disco delicacies and post-punk palettes. Raised on a cross-section of indie and gospel music ranging from Joy Division to Ray Charles, Rudie developed an affinity for songs that make you move and an appreciation for a wide spectrum music.
