Songwriters in the Round with Dalby Biehl, Chapman Whitted and Eli Lev
From the venue:
A talented songwriter, singer, artist and activist Dalby Biehl is no average 16- year old. This highly gifted teenager has found her own little niche in composing music and lyrics that are relatable to both your youngest sibling to your favorite grandparent. Dalby speaks to her fans on many levels. Her creativity is inspiring, her vocabulary is impressive and her commitment to being herself makes her musica very ‘unique’ breath of fresh air.
Born in Newport Beach, California with stops in Pittsburgh and New Jersey along the way, Dalby now resides in Atlanta. She’s learned to adapt and has translated her journey into melody and lyric. Atlanta seems to be a great resting spot for this young artist as she accredits it’s musicalscene, livliness and culture as the cultivator for the exposure, new connections and growth she’s experienced over the past few years.
“I really don’t like labeling myself to any genre, because I hate feeling like there’s no room for me to expand or grow...hopefully, if you like one of my songs, you like one of my songs, and it shouldn’t be a matter of genre.”
Harry Styles, Ed Shereen and Taylor Swift are just a few of the artists that Dalby idolizes. She is passionate about the work she does and is irrefutably committed to her craft, the teenage prodigy makes it her goal to connect to people through her music. “If its standing up for social justice, connecting to someone in a dark place, or just giving someone a song to scream in the car.” Speaking her truth and standing up for others is in her blood. Her aunt, Amy Biehl, was a well known anti-Apartheid activist who lost her life in South Africa in 1993. Dalby has combined these aspects of her life and rolled them into one.
“I let my emotions out through my writing. As an activist, I also like to speak my thoughts, but it’s easier for me to sing about it.”
