PEIA ALEXANDER was born in Chicago and raised in BedStuy, Brooklyn. She grew up surrounded by music. Her father ran the New York City night-life and her step-father was a DJ and a publicist. She learned everything she could from her dads. She even served as an assistant to them when she came of age.
PEIA knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a singer. “I could never imagine being anything else. Music is my first love, my passion, my therapy. It truly makes me happy!”
She learned to play the guitar at 3 years old and recorded her first song at 16 years old. “The grind and long journey I’m on to achieve success has humbled me. But I have never lost my hunger, that’s the key.”
PEIA is heavily influenced by Tina Turner, Beyonce, TuPac and Prince. “If Chaka Khan and Prince had a love-child, it would be me! (Laughing) I love making people smile and dance.”
A natural born fighter, PEIA has been battling Multiple Sclerosis for many years. She is determined not to let her affliction hinder her from making her dreams a reality.
PEIA is currently wrapping up production on her debut EP “BUNNY” which will be released winter of 2018. Stay tuned for the lead single, “Winning” ft. CP Da Ruler.
