Beverly Hills-based label Under The Moon Records is proud to announce its signing of neo-soul artist Liyah Bey. A Los Angeles-based artist known for blending her love of classic R&B with modern pop aesthetics to create powerful settings for her extraordinary vocal chops, the label said they are focused on accelerating Liyah's already promising career.
"It is our great fortune to have the opportunity to present Liyah and her music to the world." Under the Moon Head of A&R Chris Desmond said. "Liyah Bey is, quite simply, one of the most powerful, gifted and versatile singers on the planet. Anyone who hasn't already should just play 'Million Dollar Girl' on Spotify and set it to repeat.”

Liyah was encouraged to nurture her natural talent by her mother from a very young age and began writing at the age of 17. "For me, it’s all about emotional resiliency in the face of everything life throws at us," Liyah said about her music. "And sometimes, it’s just about having fun and wanting to dance.” She rose to national prominence as a teen during her extraordinary two year run in the celebrated revue, “Lady Soul: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin." Following the success of her Lady Soul performances, Liyah knew it was time to leave her home behind and go straight to the source.
In New York, Liyah found herself being embraced by many generations of artists, recording in the Sony Studios with Kool and the Gang and even stepping in for Lauryn Hill to perform onstage with the Fugees for their concert in Moscow. Liyah was determined to follow her own path and decided it was time to focus on her writing. Excited by the musical scene in Los Angeles, she relocated to the West Coast where she worked feverishly to hone her already seasoned songwriting.
Liyah is currently preparing for new releases in 2018 to follow up her latest single "Million Dollar Girl."
