Singer/Songwriter and Evanston native iDA HAWK (aka Jessie Arlen) performed alongside electronic artist Big Wild at Lollapalooza on Aug. 3, on the American Eagle Stage.
iDA HAWK is the featured vocalist on Big Wild’s hit “Invincible,” which she co-wrote with him and was recently highlighted in an Apple Watch Series 3 commercial. The song was released in 2017 by Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective and premiered by Billboard Magazine.
Now based in New York City, iDA is currently recording her debut solo album, which features an eclectic mix of indie-pop, soul and R&B. Her debut visual single “Out of Focus” was released in 2017 and premiered by LDadygunn magazine, which described her single as “twirling at the intersection between Adele’s big, stadium-filling croon and Marina and the Diamonds’ glam-pop theatrics … the kind of dazzling pop music that makes you want to throw glitter in the air and dance until dawn.”
