Recovery, Trauma, and Music as a Healer

     Delphia’s return to the stage is an inspirational story that has been a decade in the making. Before graduating high school, she auditioned for the likes of Quincy Jones and Clive Davis, performed a monologue in Broadway’s ‘Chicago,’ and found herself a semi-finalist on AOL’s Breakers competition. Turning down a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, the then guitar-toting singer/songwriter chose rather to focus on her craft after placing twenty songs on ABC’s ‘All My Children,’ an opportunity that helped win her producer and music director a Daytime Emmy for Music Direction. Five years later, her performances included CBGB in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, and Citizen’s Bank Park in Philadelphia. Melody Gardot and Amos Lee opened for her; she opened for Leon Russel and Wishbone Ash. Her career ended, however, in a single night. An attack by a fan-stalker began a downward spiral of musical silence that was fueled by overly-prescribed medications.

     Since recovering and returning to music in 2016, Delphia has found a new voice, a soulful style, and an outlet to help others that have suffered through similar trauma through her non-profit Survivor Stories, Inc. She is a recipient of the WESTAF / National Endowment for the Arts IMTour Scholarship program, and is slated to record with 4-time Grammy award-winning jazz producer Larry Klein [Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell] in 2019. She arranges for and performs with her soul-based ensemble, affectionately known as Delphia and her Deltones, and will be performing at the KiMo Theatre on December 29, 2018.
