Alternative rock, Musical Artist
Who is Eartha?
Eartha, born Eartha Moore in Los Angeles, California, is an American female eclectic, alternative soul singer, songwriter, and musician. The 5’11” sultry raspy-voice contralto who sports a honey-blonde buzz cut has garnered much attention in the underground club, urban, and indie circles. While her musical style is a hybrid of many and evades categorization, she credits her biological mother Zinna Moore, Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway as her main musical influences.
Eartha, who is signed to indie label AFRT Music, founded by identical twins Glaurys Ariass and Helsa Ariass, debuted her first release This I Know in 2000. The fourteen track release captured a great deal of attention. As a result of the positive feedback on the Love Jones track, she released the Maxi-Single Love Jones, which consists of five mixes in 2001. She then followed up with her sophomore project Sidebars in 2002, for which Eartha’s unique vocal style earned her two Grammy Award nominations and a win. She continued to write and contribute with musicians and producers, at times as a ghostwriter. On September 21, 2010, Eartha released her third CD album Ink Dry Blue.
