International singer and songwriter, LADY ALMA, is bringing her soaring, searing vocals back to eager audiences who desire her incomparable funk-house-soul stylings. From her dynamic live shows that left critics and fans alike breathless across the globe for two decades, to the recent revival of her hit single produced by The Rainmakers entitled “Let It Fall”, LADY ALMA continues to be a widely praised source of true sonic satisfaction since her introduction.
Born in San Diego, and raised in Philadelphia, LADY ALMA began her entry into the house music scene recording club anthems helmed by the likes of super-producers Yukihiro Fukutomi, Masters at Work, Fanatix, 4Hero, and fellow Philly mainstay King Britt, where she was featured on his legendary album When the Funk Hits the Fan. She has worked with Mark de Clive-Lowe – fan favorite songs include “Keep It Movin’”, “Believe”, “Hold Your Head Up” and their infectious 2010 cover of Michael Jackson’s “I Can’t Help It”. In 2014, she released her single “It’s House Music”, produced by Osunlade, on Yoruba Records, which is still considered a fan-favorite world-wide. In 2017, her single “Peace You’ll Find” was released on Reelsoul Musik, produced by Will “Reelsoul” Rodriguez.
With the resurgence of “Let It Fall”, which went viral via Facebook with over 20 million views (video of a fan seen dancing and lip-syncing to the song in Johannesburg, Gauteng South Africa), and thanks to another video of legendary choreographer Toni Basil, dancing to “It’s House Music”, that went viral with over 5 million views on Twitter, and was also seen on Inside Edition; it is clear - LADY ALMA is in-demand! Her single “Glory & Honor” (produced by Darryl James) was released in March 2018, and quickly followed by “A Time And A Place” with producer/DJ Ralf GUM, which was released in June 2018 on GOGO Music. Also in 2018, LADY ALMA was recognized by Traxsource as “Best of 2018” including: “2 Top 10s”, “16 Top 100 spins” and “60 features in DJ Top 10 Charts” to name a few.
Currently, LADY ALMA has released her highly anticipated anthology album entitled Twilight (June 28, 2019), with longtime collaborator Mark de Clive-Lowe, via Mashibeats. The album is now available on all streaming platforms. Following the release of her current project, LADY ALMA can be heard on the hottest tracks this year, including: Low Steppa’s “Make You Move”, which reached #1 on Traxsource; Dego’s (2000Black) third album "Too Much", on song entitled: "Just Leave It"; Valvin V. Roane’s “Just Call”; and the revered and anthemic “Let It Fall” has a new remix with legend DJ Spinna (“Let It Fall” Galactic Soul Remix), available on Moulton Music fall 2019.
Whether you’re in Toronto, Japan, Berlin, London, Paris, Johannesburg, or major cities across the US, LADY ALMA’s music is revered by many fans and DJs alike. As quoted by legendary dj/producer DJ Jazzy Jeff, “Oh my God...if you’re looking for some true soulful emotion, movin’ vocals...here you go...she makes me wanna throw my hands in the air & party the nite away... that’s Philly soul for ya!"
