Andrea Nicole Daughtry has been a singer and artist for most of her life and an entrepreneur for over 5 years, Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, she’s endured an immense journey of heartbreak involving a failed professional recording contract as a teenager, the loss of her high school sweetheart, and limited family support in business endeavors. Witnessing tumultuous relationships with immediate family, and destroying the most important one in her own life, has led her to write most of the songs you hear. Her writing process is substantially different than most and only understood by few, but with the expertise of Brandon Jones, a (classically trained pianist at VCU), the solo journey began in early 2015. Andrea has written over 50 songs and will be releasing them over an extended amount of time. Years later after infiltrating college campuses like VCU, Howard University, VUU, Hampton University, Norfolk State University, and VSU with her unique designs and Vintage collection, she’s since taken a leap of faith in moving to Miami, Florida and created a new life of opportunities for herself in music, fashion, and business. Her keen sense of style and organization has connected her with individuals like Nerissa Irving (Nefeteri) and Leadonis Ferguson, who are known pillars in the Florida community of arts, fashion, and feminine health. With God’s help she’s continued to rise above adversity and remained true to herself while showcasing her musical gifts and passion for fashion. Her business Buttah Babez, was created in 2015 with the help of I’asia Aberasturi in Richmond Virginia to help combat various Skin and Scalp issues. Buttah Babez has had a wonderful 1st year and has further expanded in Curating and Designing African goods and Vintage Finds. Andrea’s Journey will soon continue in New York, D.C., and L.A. as she continues to advance in her music and small business. You can be sure to hear new music from Andrea in 2017. Her takeover is near.
Lady Lama is an Alternative Hip-Hop and R&B storyteller. Living in New York during her early years, and then coming down to South Florida, gave her just the right amount of edge. She grew up being inspired by going against the grain, just because–always going left when everyone else wanted to go right. This made for the diversity you can find in her music. One day doing aggressive raps about UNITY, then another day crooning about love lost over a glass of wine. LVDYVISION, her brand, sees no limits and that is the message she wants to share with the world. “Life will only meet you as far as you’re willing to go.”- Lady Lama So with that being said, what you focus on grows. So many people are focused on “making it” when all you have to do is start and really meditate on your intentions.
