Aliah's Music Story

Aliah began creative dance class at 3, started piano lessons at 7, then opted out of lessons at 9 to secretly write her own songs from her poetry. Dancing all her life, in High School, she was known for her conceptual dances where she choreographed to ZAPPA, YES, & PINK FLOYD songs. Her life changed when she picked up the sax on a dare from her boyfriend to play his sax & form a band. Since 9 she had been writing songs from her poetry (kept in "a shoebox under her bed" a lyric spoken of in her title track song "Shades Of Images") with her goal of one day writing the songs she'd dance to. Getting serious about music caused her to quit dance at her high school to commit full time to music and yoga classes at Phoenix College in the afternoons. It made more sense when she won 2nd place at the PC Talent Show with a solo dance piece to ELO's "Just Take A Pebble". Yoga had taken her dance to a whole new level. She was playing sax in the PC Jazz band & performing her own songs regularly at Phoenix College's Lunch Concert Series where a popular radio DJ announced her as "the next Joni Mitchell". The prestigious Berklee School of Music agreed and gave her a vocal scholarship reserved for unique singer/songwriters. More recently Vision Magazine added, "Aliah's music is both timeless and current."

Keep kickin' out the jams!"
