LADY ALMA

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.

Her track “Let It Fall”, made a resurgence in 2018 when the song went viral via Facebook with over 30 million views (video of a fan seen dancing and lip-syncing to the song in Johannesburg, Gauteng South Africa). Not long after, another video of legendary choreographer Toni Basil, dancing to “It’s House Music”, went viral with over 5 million views on Twitter, and was also seen on Inside Edition. The demand for LADY ALMA’s infectious groove went off the charts. 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.

The following year, LADY ALMA released her highly anticipated anthology album entitled Twilight (June 28, 2019), with longtime collaborator Mark de Clive-Lowe, via Mashibeats. LADY ALMA’s powerhouse vocals were also featured on a number of tracks 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” remix with legend DJ Spinna (“Let It Fall” Galactic Soul Remix), was released on Moulton Music fall 2019. The year concluded on a high note, as Lady Alma performed at the 29th annual Chosen Few Picnic & House Music Festival in Chicago on July 6th, 2019.

In 2020, LADY ALMA hasn’t slowed down! She’s featured on "Landlord" by Swift Technique, which was released on Swift Technique's indie label in January. Also in January, LADY ALMA released a compilation of remixes of her track “Make You Move” featuring renowned DJs including: Terry Hunter, Mark Francis, DJ Shannon & Lil Dave on T Box’s Records.

She plans to carry this momentum throughout 2020 and beyond, with an upcoming re-release of the 2015 track "Your Time To Shine" (Wipe The Needle Remix) by Sol Brown featuring Lady Alma via Makin Moves Records. LADY ALMA’s fam can also look forward to her newest single, “All The Way Far Away" produced by Rob Paine and David Marston scheduled for release in August 2020, with more new tracks with features from the likes of Rich Medina, DJ Miza and Present Tense coming later in 2020.

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!".
