TRAEDONYA is an international party girl. She loves her passport, loves collecting stamps at foreign ports and loves living out of her bag. From rocking some of the UK and Irelands’s most legendary stages to being the headlining artist at Couture designer Sir Paco Rabanne’s Moscow art unveiling, her distinct sound and divine melody have earned her attention around the globe, including the over 40 markets she has toured in the United States.
Born in North Carolina and raised between the South, New York, and the West Indies, TRAEDONYA! has been witness to some of the most diverse rhythms of cultures, music, and people.
It is this that truly, makes her own style so memorable. If you ask her now, she’ll tell you her musical influences range from the unforgettable classics of artists like Mary J. Blige and Billy Holiday to the underground sounds of Drum-n-Bass, 2 Step Garage, and Trance. It is this diversity that TRAEDONYA! always brings to the table.
Coming from a formal musical background and learning from such jazz greats as Chico Hamilton, Reggie Workman and Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, TRAEDONYA!’s voice reflects a professional, sophisticated urban sound in a scene often flooded with generic, commercial beats.
