Serafia is the kind of singer that other singers love listening to. Her deep, sultry voice makes hang on to every note while eagerly anticipating the next one.
The highly versatile vocalist grew up singing and performing in school choirs and ensembles. She further cultivated her craft by performing singing along with the radio and going to jazz and blues festivals in her hometown of Monterey, CA.
“Going to these festivals as a child instantly inspired me to be a performer,” said Serafia. This statement is not surprising considering that she cites Etta James, Nina Simone and Betty Wright as major influences.
