09, February 2016: Ahree is quickly emerging as a gifted singer and song writer. She defines her music as RnB/Neo Soul with a dash of jazz. Her musical journey began at the tender age of three when she began singing in the choir at her home church in Charlotte NC. By the age of six she had become a soloist, and by age eleven she fined tuned her gifts by becoming a talented lyricist. Ahree’s love for music became her lifeline as she struggled to deal with a series of illnesses and hospitalizations relating to her diagnosis of asthma.
“I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time outside, so music became my best friend, I learned very early on that music had the power to heal and soothe, and that’s exactly what I want my music to do for my listeners.” states Ahree.
Ahree studied voice and dance at the Charlotte Piedmont School of Music, and at the age of eight she had her first recital. She performed both an acapella and classical rendition of the gospel hymnal Great Is Thy Faithfulness, leaving the audience in awe of her level of vocal maturity and on stage gracefulness. There was not a dry eye left in the crowd after her performance.
At age 13 Ahree released her first single titled “That Makes Me” in 2013, an upbeat inspirational song, and in 2015 upon meeting Ira Parker, Owner of Maximus Music Records, returned to the studio to complete her first full project. She is scheduled to release her single “VIBE” March 1, 2016 everywhere music is sold online. “VIBE” offers true evidence of Ahree’s ability to captivate listeners with her soulful and sultry vocals. She reports being influenced by Jill Scott, ErykahBadu, Alicia Keys, Adele, Aaliyah, John Legend and the jazz great Nina Simone.
In the Spring of 2015 Ahree won Best Talent at Big Mikes (of Day 26) Do It Big Talent Showcase and Concert hosted in the Queen City. Ahree also won the Headliner and One Shot contest at the HardCandymusic showcase in Charlotte NC, and was recently introduced and showcased at The Ladies Soul Day celebration hosted by North Carolina vocalist Gena Chambers.
Soothing, Mesmerizing, and Captivating are the words fans often use to define Ahree’s music…Leaving no doubt that this young artist is well on her way to Musical Greatness
