Born and raised in Southern California, triple threat singer/songwriter, actress and dancer Erica OYoung grew up with a passion for rhythm, melody and words. Her unique intermingling of musical influences - from her familys Asian heritage, to her hometown hip hop and R&B influences, to her classical training in piano and violin - brings a distinctive style to her music that is untapped, urban and distinctive.
Her songwriting style is powerful, rhythmic and driven, characterized by infectious hip hop melodies over hard-hitting tracks. A determined and passionate artist that began and still fights her journey completely independently, OYoungs skillful lyrics and music reveal a deep and genuine strength and love that inspire and captivate her fans. As an artist, she brings a refreshing new fusion of urban and exotic.
Known for her dynamic stage presence and high energy dance performances, OYoung has shared the stage with superstars such as overseas pop sensation Emil Chou and American Idols Kimberley Locke. She currently dances with choreographer Ronnie Reddick (Janet Jackson, Deborah Cox), and is one of Californias most in-demand acts.
To her fellow musicians and industry professionals, Erica is highly respected for her drive, her work ethic and her talent. Ive never had it easy, she says. And I never take it easy.
