February is Love Austin Music Month–learn more here. Eimaral Sol is the KUTX Artist of the Month for February. Photo by Julia Reihs/KUTX.

Austin’s Eimaral Sol describes her sound as neo-soul, and it’s easy to hear the influence of like-minded icons like Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. Sol Soliloquies, her 2019 album, modernizes the sound a bit with deep beats and lyrics built around the idea of transcending everyday anxieties. This week on My KUTX, Sol spins an hour of music that helped her find her own sound. Listen to My KUTX on Saturday, February 29 at 6 p.m. or at any time in the player below, and see Eimaral Sol at Empire Control Room on March 5.
