Motivated to live out her dreams by any means necessary and help dreams in others become a reality, Ideeyah was also inspired by a dream of her own for her stage name. Ideeyah (pronounced 'idea') is a Detroit born and bred songstress, writer, performer and vessel of healing through her electrifying vocals. The young age of six is when the talented artist started honing her musical ability and it has been an ever-evolving journey since then.
Defining her style as a “funky creation”, influenced by rock, soul and funk, you can find Ideeyah zoning out to a plethora of artists from Alice Coltrane to Zap Mama. Her on-stage presence captures attention and easily turns spectators into believers as she exudes an aura of love from her microphone into the amplifiers. Ideeyah’s craft has garnered her mass appeal from her peers in the music world- summoned upon to open up for/ perform alongside the likes of Jessica Care Moore, Monica Blaire, Joi, Erykah Badu, Norma Jean Bell, Divinity Roxx, Christopher Williams, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Dwele, Saxappeal, Amp Fiddler and many more. She is currently the head mistress of the mic for Collective Peace. Black Women Rock (founded by Jessica Care Moore) also rests on her musical resume, having been part of the women-only musical showcase since 2010.
When asked her reason to become a performing artist, Ideeyah replied, “I want my shows and songs to provoke acts of love and keep people moving forward in awareness. I want to create something that is hard to forget. When music comes from a place of honesty and is serving the purpose of inspiring, then people literally ‘feel better’. That’s what I want my music to do”.
