"Take a solid full rythm section, add a tasteful 4 piece horn section to it and blend the whole thing to Aliah Sheffield's powerful voice.. The result is a unique and beautiful sound that will satisfy your ears, make you stomp your feet and warm up your soul."
Soul'D Out Nyc + Aliah Sheffield project is the perfect crossover of a certain type of sound coming straight from a glorious past and the more actual touch of an original music created and performed here, in New York City. The music style is Soul, but it incorporates many other influences from the great tradition of American music such as Folk, Jazz, Gospel and Blues.
The collaboration between the band and Aliah Sheffield started in 2013 when French piano player and arranger Olivier Court met the Savannah, GA born Singer/songwriter. From this unexpected encounter came out the coolest songwriting team. Since then, Aliah and Olivier have been writing some great music together that has been performed all over the city at locations such as Rockwood Music Hall, Pianos NYC, Drom NYC, Shrine, Silvana, the Way Station in Brooklyn, Marcus Garvey park and Bryant park.
2016 is an exciting year for Soul'D Out and Aliah as they are getting ready to make their recording debut in Fall. Stay tuned!
- Aliah Sheffield, Singer/Songwriter -
There’s no question about it: singer-songwriter Aliah Sheffield has always loved music. For her, it isn’t just a “thing” she does, it’s a way of life. It’s in her blood; her heart; her soul.
Born in Newark, New Jersey and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Aliah has always been a singer. Her musical influences cover a wide range—Deniece Williams, Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle, to name a few. She played a number of instruments in grade school, including clarinet and saxophone. In high school, she was encouraged to explore the piano as she discovered her songwriting abilities. While studying film scoring at Berklee College of Music she began to experiment with fusing genres, particularly soul and R&B, to create her unique keyboard driven style. Yes, her music is heartfelt; her vulnerability definitely shows. But at the same time, her songs are also inspiring and empowering.
Today, Aliah is fulfilling her dream of performing and sharing her music, capturing audiences in settings from intimate to grand. Working with industry veterans as well as other rising stars, she is currently writing and recording songs for her debut album.
Aliah Sheffield is ready to take the world by storm, so have your best umbrella ready!
