A flair for bringing intimacy on the grandest scale with a not-to-be-missed once-in-a-generation voice.

Delphia delivers relatable sentiments with her story of trauma and triumph, set to the soundtrack of her sixties inspired, yet fresh and modern songwriting. An infusion of infectious soul, piano-pop and blues

that will leave the listener emotionally invested.

A career cut short from the trauma of a sexual assault, the story of the artist who ultimately became

Delphia   is   inspiring   and   remarkable.   As   a   teenager,   the   then-guitar-toting   singer/songwriter   had auditioned   for   the   likes   of   Quincy   Jones   and   Clive   Davis,   performed   a   monologue   in   Broadway’s

‘Chicago,’ and was an AOL Breaker’s competition semi-finalist. Before graduating high school, she had twenty song placements on ABC’s ‘All My Children,’ winning her producer and music director a

Daytime Emmy. Five years later, her performances included CBGB in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, and Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia. Melody Gardot

and Amos Lee were opening for her; she was opening for Leon Russel and Wishbone Ash. All that ended in a single night when an attack by a fan-stalker would cause the downward spiral of musical

silence fueled by overly-prescribed medications.

“In 2016 I sat down at a piano and sang about the encounter. That’s when I actually worked through my pain” remarks Delphia about her transformation, “all of a sudden, I had a new voice, a new style, and a

new name. I was a completely new person, but more importantly, I was healing.” Now she has caught the ear of four-time Grammy Award winning jazz producer Larry Klein [Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, Melody Gardot] and is scheduled to record her first album under her new stage name this August.
