Phoenyx – A mythical creature that was forged in flames and rises through the ashes time and time again. Or, a dope ass superhero with mind powers. She is both.
PHOENYX is an International artist from San Francisco, California. She was influenced to pursue a career in music by her parents, who are also musicians (jazz). Her mother toured with Harry Belefonte, and is a professor in music. Her father was the musical director to the incomparable Miss Lena Horne, and many other music icons. Music is literally in her blood. Conceived in a recording studio, PHOENYX discovered the world while alongside her mother in Japan, Copenhagen, and Africa. Then again on her own as one fourth of an American girl group in Germany that opened for Sean Puffy Combs European tour in the early 2000.
PHOENYX is a driving force of change, awareness, and self love. Her lyrics are meaningful and her sound is unlike any other. She creates music that resonates long after the record stops. Her music has a passionate blend of r and b, pop, jazz, musical theatre, a sprinkle of rock. PHOENYX’s melodic rhythms and Tetris like arrangements accompany her striking appearance and style.
Once compared to Lauren Hill, PHOENYX is characterized by her diversity. She is a singer-songwriter, spoken word artist, high fashion model, dancer, choreographer, martial artist, and a Broadway Alum (Hairspray). And once upon a time, was the butt double for Missy Misdemeanor Elliot, while dancing alongside Madonna. PHOENYX is a woman of many facets. Through her music, PHOENYX sheds light on issues that we as individuals and as a race face everyday. Her music fuels you to embrace your power, feel good about yourself and make no apologies for being you. She embodies the term #UNFUCKWITHABLE !
The message that one may receive from her highly anticipated debut album URWELCOME, is to be unapologetically yourself. Fall down, get back up! Take no shit and give no fucks. Sometimes people and relationships suck…passion is great…and music is the best thing in the history of the UNIVERSE!
“Our world is in dire need of love, healing and awareness. Where better to receive it than music? Music is a universal language. UNI-VERSE – everyone speaks it. The music that I create serves a purpose.”
Stay tuned for her debut album URWELCOME, set to release early 2020.
