By age 6, Talia Goddess had already started producing music, albeit on some very clunky editing software. The child of a DJ and singer, music was second nature to Goddess growing up; she was cocooned in it. From a young age the artist witnessed music’s power to bring communities together. Goddess spent her teenage years dropping original tracks and remixes on Soundcloud, building a devoted audience and a unique sound that draws on neo-soul, electronica and RnB.

Now a recent graduate of LaGuardia High School, Goddess is beginning to emerge from her cocoon into the Brooklyn music scene as a singer, producer and DJ. This summer, she will release her debut EP, Poster Girl, which sees her using her elastic voice in new ways, dropping into low-pitched, low-key raps before bursting into the song’s soulful chorus.

“As a young, black, queer multi-hyphenate artist and creative entrepreneur, I am already breaking barriers by daring to chase my dreams,” says Goddess. And she’s not chasing dreams alone. She has also founded TRANCE, a record label, creative agency and recording studio dedicated to amplifying the creativity of young musicians of colour in Brooklyn.
