Akwarius is committed to her craft and puts her all into her words and music. Akwarius believes that there is a musician in all of us just waiting to unleash its magic on the world. Although she doesn't have a background filled with a family of musicians, she says her mom, dad and sister can really blow. Her first step to her musical journey not only began on MySpace Music, but it also begun the very first time she hit a stage in front of adoring fans. "At that very moment I knew this is where I wanted to be, was destined to be, and where I am going to be." Akwarius pulls inspiration from a plethra of places, mainly her Creator!!
Akwarius loves nothing more than to share her stories, her thoughts and her feelings to the world through her music. When asked what's more important, Fortune or Fame, she responded by saying, "Neither fortune or fame is of any importance over the other, because if you create good music, good soulful music than those two little words won't matter. Especially when someone listens to my album and they are like, girl I really felt track 6 or track 2 helped me through some rough patches in my life, that's what is important to me." Let this journey be one I will never forget, and never regret. My God has blessed me with a talent and I want to share it with the world and beyond. Akwarius...mind...body...and soul!! .

As young as 4 years old, Sylvia recalls memories of innocently singing her nursery rhymes as her father stood by, recording every last note. A singer himself, Larry Fedrick contributed his beautiful voice to a quartet as a child and, later, the church choir. He never actively pursued a career in gospel music, but would go on to influence that of his musically inclined family, especially his young daughter, Sylvia.
Often singing to her as a child, the influences of Sylvia's father would serve as a foundation upon which Sylvia would grow as an artist, taking with her the sweet melodies of such revered musicians as Sam Cook, Nat King Cole, Dakota Staten, and Billy Eckstine.
Sylvia's involvement in school and community organizations on Chicago's South Side led to her membership in the Walter H. Dyett Magnet school choir. This sparked Sylvia's interest and initiated formal vocal training under the instruction of Naomi Petty. She bettered her vocal range and maintained her involvement at Lindblom Technical High School where she graduated with the honor of "most talented."
Post-graduation, Sylvia continued her craft, singing in weddings and church plays, while participating in a young-adult choir at the Calvary Baptist Church. But, as life would have it, a series of missed connections and wrong turns left Sylvia defeated and disappointed. Sylvia thought she had somehow missed her chance at a career in gospel music...
Karyn White possesses one of the most memorable, distinctive voices ever heard in popular music. She's an accomplished singer/songwriter who etched herself into music history with her smash hit song, the female anthem, 'Superwoman'. That song made international waves, selling over a million units, being certified Gold and named the Billboard R&B Song of the Year in 1989. She IS a super woman. She's Karyn White.
In the years since her last CD was released in 1994 (Make Him Do Right – Warner Brothers), the lovely, soulful vocalist has focused her energy on family, raising and nurturing her daughter Ashley (her daughter with ex-husband, producer/songwriter Terry Lewis of Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis fame). White’s priorities to family are largely responsible for her absence from the music scene. Her daughter Ashley is now a freshman at Howard University but for the last 18 years – Karyn saw to it that Ashley received the love and care of a mother invested in her child – which the nomadic lifestyle of a professional musician could not afford.
Karyn's considerable talents extend well beyond music. She’s been successfully honing her skills in recent years as an interior designer, and making moves in real estate. However, she didn't turn her back on music, still paying close attention to the industry. "Music is in me. You may be temporarily detached from the business side of it – but the music, the melodies, the rhythms – never leave you," said White.
White's new CD, scheduled for release in 2012, offers a heartfelt Retro Acoustic soulful flare. She delivers every note, every inflection, with the flow of a woman who knows what each nuance means to the song. The CD contains another anthem for the ladies – a female bonding and empowerment tune with an acoustic grit, called "Sista Sista". With this future classic, the ladies will hear that they have their champion back on the scene. Karyn also performs her own version of the Cyndi Lauper classic, "True Colors", on this new CD.
"Karyn is fearless, and when we first started talking about her releasing new music in the marketplace, the first thing she said was – 'I don't want to do it like I've done it before—I want it to be new, I want to push the envelope on all of the new social media, internet and website platforms, I want to be the edge not on it........I want to be a difference maker' that's why I call Karyn a renaissance woman," said Jay King, the independent music, multi-media mogul of Club Nouveau fame, who is working with White on her new music. White's project includes embracing multi-media formats, to broaden the scope of Karyn and her ideas, with her "Karyn's World" website (www.karynsworld.me). Plans for the web site include a reality show, and the opportunity for fans to purchase Karyn White branded merchandise.
