Singing since the age of 10, Somalia is an emerging R&B singer, songwriter, and performing artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. A natural-born performer, she did musical theatre, chorus, and talent shows every year in grade school. Somalia's love for the performing arts led her to earn a B.A. from Spelman College and to travel to London to study music and songwriting at Goldsmith's University of London.
Somalia creates music that infuses sounds from R&B, Jazz, Neo-Soul, and Hip-Hop music. Inspired by artists like Brandy, Anita Baker, Minnie Riperton, Missy Elliott and Jill Scott, Somalia writes and collaborates with live musicians to create her unique live sound. Some of her current and previous live performance work has been with The Atlanta Beltline, The Atlanta Taste of Soul Festival, The National Black Arts Festival, Six Flags Over Georgia, The New Georgia Project, and NAMI. She was most recently nominated for the First Annual National Black Arts Horizon Award in songwriting.
Her most recently released project â€œJourneyâ€ (2018) is available to stream on all major platforms. Her newest video to her single â€œMimosaâ€ has over 10,000 views on YouTube!
