"Most beings spring from other individuals; but there is a certain kind which reproduces itself. The Assyrians call it the Phoenix". - Roman Poet OVID Born in 1981 and very proud of her African roots, independent (unsigned) artist La Phoenix (the phoenix) is a new artist launching her music career with her first single "FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT" out in July and her EP Album "SONO A LECCE" to follow in August. Her love for music is inherited from her dad who she says, always had music playing in the family home from as early as she can remember. La Phoenix has been writing since she was 13yrs old and has over the years written poetry and novels which remain unpublished. She began song writing 3yrs ago and describes her music as "Deep Soul". This infact refers to her voice which she likes to call "old skool". Her style of music varies; she loves everything from soul to country music, orchestral music to old hip pop, Italian ballads to bollywood music, R&B to electric guitar laden rock songs and the list continues.. The summer before she turned 18, La Phoenix made her first trip to Italy and she completely fell in love with the country. In the past few years she's come to love the country, it's region and it's people; this has influenced her music greatly. On tracks like BELLA ITALIA, SONO A LECCE, ESCAPE TO SICILY, GIANFRANCO, FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT and IL MIO PRINCIPE ITALIANO, we hear her praise the country, it's cities and the Italian people. On other tracks like THAT GIRL, SHE DON'T LOVE YOU, WOMAN CRY NO MORE, GOOD WOMAN and POETIC JUSTICE, we hear the real essence of soul in her voice while tracks like BAD GIRL, AFRICAN QUEEN, MISS PHOENIX and SLAVE get you heading for the dance floor. Tracks like FORSAKEN, GREAT ESCAPE, LOVE BREAK ME, HEAVENS RAINBOW and YOU MUST LOVE ME expose the fragility of a heart in love. The track that however makes the most impact, is COLD WORLD; a song that is sure to draw out raw emotion from it's listeners. La Phoenix's music style runs across various genres: R&B, Jazz, Soul, Dance, Easy Listening. Her versatility sees her attempting other genres, apart from those mentioned. This is an artist to watch in 2011.
