This NC musician draws from a rich musical past with lyrics that delve into the human condition
Raised in Dallas, Texas to Malawi-born parents and now residing in North Carolina, Anjimile knows that appreciation is as important as practice when it comes to music.
When composing, Anjimile draws upon a collective musical past, including the African pop beloved by his parents, time in youth choir, influences from ‘80s music and even contemporaries and now label-mates, Big Thief. Lyrically, he delves deeply and thoughtfully into the human condition; his album Giver Taker addressed the conflict between faith and life as a trans person, as well as the hopeful victory of overcoming addiction. Anjimile’s releases include their Reunion EP, and a cover of Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s “Ever New,” and “Stranger,” his debut single on the label 4AD.
