Phoenyxx Flame was born on May 28th, 1993 in Decatur, Ga. At age 4, Phoenyxx began taking ballet and Jazz lessons, and participating in local dance recitals, plays, and musical performances. Born into a music-obsessed family, Phoenyxx was inspired by a variety of genres ranging from Old School R&B to Country and Classic Rock. During her time at Oklahoma State University, Phoenyxx realized that she too was like a Phoenix and it was time to rise from the ashes. She credits Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, as her most major influences as a child. Phoenyxx has big plans for 2015! Be on the lookout for her debut mixtape Year of The Phoenyxx dropping early next year, and her debut single “Rockin” will be released on Valentine’s Day.
Why should you listen?
Plain and simple, this girl can sang. Not sing. Sang. We were introduced to Phoenyxx Flame on Sonick’s EP This Is Me, on a track called “On Yo Body.” That track made me want to learn more about her. I found out that Phoenyxx does more than just sing. She’s also a rapper. Think of a new age Lauryn Hill. Phoenyxx can sing, rap, and dance. She’s the total package and a breath of fresh air. This phoenix is indeed destined to rise from the ashes and head straight to the top.
