So Much to Say
At the age of 14, Saiah began experimenting with poetry. Soon his passion for innovative wordplay became a defining part of his life. In 1998, with the success of his first talent show under his belt, he began to put his unique rhymes to music, paving the way for what would become his driving force in life. His style reflects his diverse respect for all avenues of music, with influences from legends like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye to hip hop icons like Common Sense and Tupac. His goal is to bring good music that is not so one dimensional back to the Hip Hop arena. Recently Saiah described his music as a new sound for the Hip Hop genre with creative wordplay and bangin beats. His fusion of modern lyrics, original music and broad appeal produces a complete and compelling act that has attracted attention from event organizers, DJ's and listeners. He has been seen performing at various clubs in Richmond, VA, including The Hyperlink, Casablanca's, and Club 321, where he performs for crowds ranging from an intimate few to hundreds, as well as other areas up the East Coast. Saiah recently opened for DJ UNK in Charleston, West Virginia where he rocked the house, and performed for hundreds at the GreekFest festival in Long Island. He has even been selected to perform in talent shows by companies from both Washington, DC and New York, including Alicia Key's own MBK Entertainment. His debut album, SAIAH SO MUCH TO SAY: BEATS, RHYMES, & HOOKS, is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2007, and his single "Nobody Remix" can already be heard on local radio stations, as well as made a part of the repertoire of various internet radio stations and DJ's across the nation. He has been interviewed for Locals Radio Only, RadioMayhem.net, and DiamondSoundsRadio.com. Isaiah's love of music, his gregarious personality, and powerful messages are inspirations to his listeners, including other artists. The incredible diversity of his audience is a testament to all his talents, and his potential to capture the imagination and souls of the American audience. His music appeals to people from all walks of life and his positive message is one all races and cultures can relate to giving him something that will change the way that Hip Hop is viewed in the music world.
