Dia was born in Los Angeles, California. A shy girl, she was introduced to, and excelled at art, music and math. Dia developed depth, power, control and dimension, from mimicking her mother, Mildred Scott, and the birds singing, until she had formal training by Seth Riggs. Daily, she listened and gained confidence while singing along with her favorite singers. Dia's prolific songwriting abilities in addition to her natural talent as a vocalist, was apparent by the age of 13. By the age of 16 she wrote "Can We Try" originally for her favorite singer, Teena Marie. Her words and emotion are that of an epic songwriter.
With her powerful six-octave range, Dia moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta, Georgia in 1995 to pursue her singing career. This move has proven to be an essential step in her career as a vocalist, writer and entertainer. She is currently working on 3 movie scripts, 3 books with soundtracks, a cartoon, a Radio Station for Independent artist and a café "HungrySoul.Cafe". With art as her second love, Dia also sculpts in acrylic paint adding a 3D effect to her folk art on anything from canvas, wood, rocks and totes. Her gallery is full of bright, bold and beautiful ballerina's, choirs and Soulmates. Dia has been able to channel her creative voice by volunteering and collaborating with other entertainers, entrepreneurs and organizations that have opened many doors and opportunities.
