R&B Songstress, Dalya Riley releases "You Drive Me Crazy."
"You Drive Me Crazy" is the new single from R&B songstress Dalya Riley. The single is presently available on all streaming and downloading platforms. The single is produced by multi-platinum certified producer Keith Andes [Michael Jackson, Prince, Diana Ross, Toni Braxton, amongst many more]
A native of Los Angeles, Dalya began singing at the age of two years old. At five years old, she joined the Children's Choir - where she grew up. By the time she was 7, she had become involved in her school choir and seized any opportunity that presented itself to sing.
By age 15, she joined a jazz ensemble with Keila (who sung on many Tupac songs), and her journey towards becoming a songstress started. Dalya's voice is a warm, powerful acrobatic voice with a raspy airy touch that can adapt to any genre of music, and she cites her influences as Angela Winbush, Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, and Betty Wright.
Dalya honed her craft further by becoming a ghostwriter and worked with so many R&B artists, including Tank and Deborah Cox and rappers, Snoop and DJ Quik, Kurupt and Daz, and many more.
By chance, she connected with her primary producer Keith Andes (who has worked with many great artists including Michael Jackson, James Ingram, After 7, Johnny Gill, Jon B, Deborah Cox) during a studio session.
Mr. Andes, who was so overwhelmingly impressed with her range and ability, asked her to appear on Jessica's (RCA) "You Can't Resist" on the songs "You Don't Give a Damn" and the self-titled album intro "You Can't Resist." From that moment, a strong friendship was forged where they would work together – practicing and refining!. Meanwhile, Dalya would be performing the underground circuits while improving her writing and singing abilities.
She is signed to Keith Andes Mountain Top Entertainment Group, the home to Ricky Jones and The Rescue of Love Choir. Dalya has found a home that suits her musical vision and journey.
