With her background being one of strong gospel influence, ARIA and her sisters entered national church talent competitions, with ARIA performing in the solo categories. There is always that pronounced energy and confidence that would emanate when seeing ARIA in performance.
ARIA is from a family of teachers whose focus was academics and stable career. She studied at the University of Technology in Jamaica, University of Reading in the U.K. and the University of New Orleans in the USA where she studied up to a Masters level in Property Economics, Valuation Surveying as well as Business respectively.
Although she has been working with the government for all of her professional life, she always maintained her involvement in music and dance touring locally and internationally. She later got exposure to singing reggae and dancehall when she did background vocals for artistes such as Ryan Mark, DJ Nicholas and Christopher Martin in studio.
When witnessing ARIA in performance it is undeniable that ‘she was born for the stage’ and ‘she makes the stage come alive the moment she steps onto it’. ARIA will accomplish anything she wants to because the moment she decided to take her music to the next level, she and her producer started writing immediately.
ARIA has used a combination of genres, dancehall, reggae, neo soul as well as acoustic to communicate her warm and pleasant but energetic, strong, infectious, intriguing and dramatic personality. Since she officially launched her music career, she has released five singles which include “Goose Pimples”, “Fulltime Love”, “Sweet Loving”, a Christmas track “Come Back To Me” and “Trust Mi (Don’t Watch Mi)”. The songs have all been received with positive reviews and have been getting airplay locally and internationally. It is said that ARIA will be the next Jamaican female sensation to explode on the international music scene, evidenced by the progress she has be making since the start of her musical journey.
She has been performing at various corporate functions and has been apart of the live music scene locally. She was signed to an independent label; Realm Music Group located in Florida and her debut album ‘Fulltime Love’ was recently released on March 1, 2012. Plans are being made for her to tour internationally. Great things are definitely in store from this very talented artiste.
