Lady A.'s Bio

Lady Assassin a.k.a. D.T.A.'s Lyrical Queen is an aspiring singer / rapper / songwriter born & raised in New Jersey. Music is a huge aspect of her life and it has captivated her from the start.

Lady A. was born in East Orange. Throughout her childhood she surrounded herself with music as an escape from the realities of life. Singing always brought her peace & she only did it as a release. At the age of 4, she became the youngest member of her father's drill team and began learning to play the drums. In elementary school, she joined the band and learned how to play the clarinet. She continued with the band through middle school and into high school. In high school, she joined the marching band and choir. She also learned how to play the saxophone and strengthened her skills on the drums.

And then her life turned upside down...when Lady A. was 14, her older sister was brutally murdered, which really devastated her. Her parents got a divorce a year later and she felt as though her life was falling apart. Her mother then moved her and her two brothers to Verona (which was a huge change from East Orange). At this point, she lost her drive for music. She stopped everything all together and retreated to just singing for herself. Going through so many different emotions from the prior two years, she started making some bad choices. Luckily, she graduated from high school but was 8 months pregnant when she did.

She became a mom at the age of 19 (she surely wasn't ready but she did what she had to do). Real life had taken over and she was then faced with the reality of raising her son without a father. Everyday she fights to make sure that he doesn't make the same mistakes as his father. So, she gave everything to GOD...she asked HIM to take the load off & help guide her. Guess what??? HE answered her prayers and she met a man that she has grown to trust with her life (she hasn't seen her father since he left). This man stepped into her life and helped her get focused and get it back on track. He made her feel like conquering the world. By 2005, she had two more children (a girl & a boy) and she worked as a preschool teacher. She lived a normal life and music still wasn't back in her sights (even though she thought about it everyday).

In early 2006, Lady A. became very ill and spent most of the year recuperating and getting herself back to 100%. In this time she realized that she had made a big mistake by turning her back on her love of music. So she put everything into making it right. "Life is just too short" She really stepped her game up. She started writing to get her skills up and singing hooks for other artists. In 2007, she was picked up by D.T.A. RecordZ (an up & coming Independent Music Label that’s starting to make some real noise in the tri-state area) and became Lady Assassin or Lady A. for short. The 1st Lady of D.T.A. They have built themselves from the ground up. They have their own studio, "The BlackHole", they do all of their own promotions, they even do their own CD duplication, amongst other things. She has been featured on songs with Verbal Assassin (her label mate & CEO of D.T.A.) & is in the process of collaborating with several other artists.

Knowing that she needed to concentrate on finishing her project, she locked herself in the studio (no phones, no computer) just her music, her pen & her notebook and finished her debut street CD "Welcome To My World", which was released in May 2009. It includes the hit love ballad "Cross The Desert". With over 90,000 plays on her myspace page, Lady A. is really on her way to the top. To her singing has always been as natural as breathing but while working on her 2nd CD, she tried her hand at rapping and found that to be a comfort zone. She finished her mixtape in a few months. "A Triple Threat" was released in June 2010 and on it you will find tracks with her singing, rapping and a few of both. It has always been her dream to stand on stage and captivate audiences with her one of a kind lyrical style and with her positive outlook on life and her beautiful smile, once you meet her, you just can't help but to love her.

One thing Lady A. brings to the table that most female MC's lack is the triple threat of being able to rap, sing and write her own music. This gives her a certain independence that most female MC's dont't have today. In many cases, femcees on the come up are over shadowed by their male counterparts, which sometimes forces them to the back instead of being one of the featured artists in the crew. But not her...she is one of the figure heads of her team & label. With her smooth, reality based lyrics and an emotional stage presence, Lady Assassin gives a stable & strong vibe to her music that conveys a certain confidence and strength to her listeners. Just listen to her music and you will get to know her. She truly is a "Diamond in the Rough"

On September 20, 2011, Lady A. released her 3rd project entitled "It's My Time". She is currently working on her 3rd project...release date not set yet. She's also trying her hands at engineering so she's getting her skills up recording & mixing sessions. She is also very big on supporting & helping out with great causes. She is a proud member of The Sanity Gurlz Domestic Violence Movement and is currently involved in the "Oath Of Peace" Stop The Violence Movement & The Femme Fatale Empowerment Summit 2012.

Lady A. has performed at several different venues: *Diva Lounge in Montclair, NJ* *60 Park & Grill in Newark, NJ* *Mood Lounge in Union,NJ* *South Park in Montclair, NJ* *Agozar Bistro in NYC* *Gallery Bar in NYC* & just recently *The Good Life Restaurant & Lounge in Union City, NJ* and has been featured on sites such as: The Exponent, X3 Mag, Grindahz Mag, On The Rise Mag, VA Talent, Circle Of Success & Global Shyne's Meet The Artist. Take the time and give her music a chance, she is a true treasure. She has really come into her own and has become one of the baddest female emcee's coming out of the Garden State. She is definitely one to keep you eyes on!!!
