Liyah Bey is an Israeli born singer/songwriter. She rose to national prominence as a teen during her extraordinary 2-year run in the celebrated review, “Lady Soul, A Tribute to Aretha Franklin”.
Today, Liyah’s songwriting blends her love of classic R&B with pop and blue-eyed soul to create powerful settings for her extraordinary vocal chops. The range and versatility with an ability to sing multiple languages and genres creates a style that is truly unique.
Following the success of her Aretha performances, Liyah knew it was time to go to the source. She moved to New York where she was embraced by many generations of artists, recording with Kool and the Gang, stepping in to replace Lauryn Hill in the Fugees, and turning down “not really right for me” offers from a number of major pop producers. Determined to follow her own path, Liyah decided it was time to focus on her writing and, excited by the musical scene in Los Angeles, she relocated to the west coast. Write she has, amassing a publishing catalog while developing her own sound as a recording artist. ‘Million Dollar Girl,’ her second release as a solo artist, demonstrates neo-soul-pop and has garnered her worldwide acclaim and provided momentum into her third release, ‘Stand With Me’. Her first release, “Can’t Stop Loving You,” is a heartbreaking ballad showcasing Liyah’s expressive vocal power and fluid emotional range. At present Liyah is spending her days in the studio, recording a full album, in Hebrew, for her fans.
