The New York City singer/songwrite, DELILAH, personifies a gutsy blend of rock, blues and funk, enhanced with Latin flavor. Her strong spirit fuels her powerful voice and high octane live show. Audiences and critics agree that she is the one to watch. Born and raised in the South Bronx, Delilah proudly hails from a family with rich musical roots. Delilah not only learned how to become a musician from her family, but also how to give back and Delilah spends her spare time mentoring young talent either one-on-on in private lessons or in after-school and summer educational programs throughout New York City.

She majored in voice at the fabled Music and Art High School (popularly known as the "Fame" school) and amidst classes, she was also schooled by her musical favorites, such as Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, and Nikka Costa.

Since college Delilah has been delighting audiences from the streets of New York to the beaches of Miami with her vocal prowess and stage craft. She has performed alongside such artists as: Living Color's Corey Glover and Deep Purple's Joe Lynn Turner at New York's The Cutting Room; Patti Labelle and Billy Preston; Morris Day and the Time; Billy Cliff of Kool & The Gang; Silver from Chic; Spyro Gyra's Gerardo Velez and Julio Fernandez; and saxophone player Richie Cannata, known for his work with Billy Joel. Delilah has been written about in the NY Times, Fortune Small Business, Talent in Motion, and the book Weekend Enterpreneur, by Michelle Anton and Jennifer Basye Sander.
