Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson.


His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul.

Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. On his influence, Allmusic wrote “Scott-Heron’s unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists”.


On 8th /9th February 2010, Gil Scott-Heron released his new album “I’m New Here” on groundbreaking independent label XL Recordings. Produced by XL label owner Richard Russell, “Im New Here” is Scott-Heron’s first album in thirteen years.


“I’m New Here” sees Scott-Heron reflecting on his life with his trademark vocal power and insight, sharing his visions among Russell’s flickering, electronic soundscapes.

The pair started recording the album in 2007, with the majority of the record being recorded over the last twelve months in New York at Clinton Studios.


“In the week that NME announced its 50 best records of the past decade, I heard one of the next decade’s best. I admit this is an outrageous claim, especially in a world saturated with statements about what’s fresh and hot. But when the album I’m talking about twists a 21st century phenomenon in a refreshing way, and redirects it towards a rather interesting future, I think polemic is necessary.” – Jude Rogers, The Guardian.
