Zadia is a R&B, neo-soul songwriter and vocalist with strong jazz influences. Born and raised in the suburbs of Maryland, her earliest musical influences include Billie Holiday, Anita Baker and Sade.
In 2016, Zadia became the lead singer of the Euphoria band, a Baltimore-based performance band known for artistic interpretations of R&B, neo-soul classics infused with jazz elements. Euphoria was invited to join the 2017 lineup of the Richmond Jazz Festival along with Erykah Badu, The Manhattan Transfer, The Isley Brothers, Maysa, Peabo Bryson and many other international artists. Euphoria regularly performed at private events and festivals along the East Coast.
As a finalist in WBAL’s 2019 singing competition, Zadia appeared on the Emmy-winning primetime holiday special, “Season to Celebrate”. Her vocal skills earned her the role of “Aunt Em” in a Baltimore production of “The Wiz” musical stage play the same year.
Zadia saved her debut single as an independent artist for a special occasion. Her song, “It’s My Birthday” released on September 25, 2020 – her birthday weekend. Preview the song at zadia.hearnow.com.
