Burgandy is first place winner of Amateur Night at the Apollo in New York and known as 'America's Best Kept Secret' from her audition & performances on X Factor (UK). Burgandy is amazing rising star who is now taking over stages around New York. She sings on legendary stages of places like Cafe Wha, Apollo Theater, with legendary artists at Ashford & Simpson's Sugar Bar and will be performing two incredible shows with Old School R&B and Classic Soul in London at PizzaExpress Live Holborn ft. live band Phasma.
A band delving deep into the Great American musical subconscious, Phasma brings out the best of soul, funk, rhythm and blues. A transmutation of gospel, rhythm and blues into a funky testament, combining sultry layered vocals, jazz-tinged harmonies and danceable polyrhythms. Phasma is all about music as a fundamentally human form of expression, and the power of music being able to reach out and touch people on a personal level. A person's soul can be their essence, that part of their being that can soar to the stratosphere. Phasma's sound pulls from the grass roots of blues and gospel, galvanises itself in the mettles of jazz and funk and sings from its guts, echoing a cry of euphoria that is felt the world over.
