So it’s been said that very city has its treasures and oh how we love finding them! It has also been said that timing is everything as is the case with our next featured artist. Just off the cuffs of her latest video single it’s our pleasure to introduce the Central Cali song bird and featured musical guest at our May’s Art-Hop showcase starring 7evenThirty NAE ALMA.
For those of us unfamiliar with you and your music who are you and where are you from?
So how’d it all start for you musically and just how far would you like to see this music thing go?
I began singing in the church choir as a kid between my ma and late grandmother in the soprano section. My god sister, Claudette taught me how to sing tho and she could BLOW! Straight power house. I don’t consider my vocals powerhouse level but that’s what I grew up around. Strong gospel voices. As I got older I gravitated to Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Bjork, Brandy and a long list of rappers n rockers that I’d say influenced me as an artist. I began recording at 17. Lots of features and living later, I released my 1st project “ALMA” in 2013 and have been going since.
I’d like to take my music to the very limit. But… I don’t believe in limits. So… there’s that:) haha
I appreciate you watching!! I’m releasing a bit of what I was up to last summer currently. I kinda fell in love, spent quality time in LA recording with friends & came up with some cool records that I never released. Everything else I’m working on is my little secret for now tho 🙂
Yes I’m excited for the May 5th gig! And definitely! I will keep you posted!
