Creative Class of 2015: Bijoux

BijouxBijoux is a sultry, soul singer adept in various styles.  The daughter of West African parents, she  grew up in a household exposed to differing genres of music including folk, classic rock and roll, makosa, country, and R&B.  As a child she grew up singing in talent shows she produced, as well as church and school choirs.

After years of high school and collegiate choral experience (madrigals, sacred African-American chamber, etc.), she discovered a love for jazz .  In 2009, she emerged onto the scene again as a featured artist with groups like Rodney Block & The Real Music Lovers and Onyx The Band.

Bijoux has opened for and sung with the likes of Kim Burrell, Anthony Hamilton, Dwele, Maurette Brown Clark, Sunday Best Season One Winner Crystal Aiken, Sunday Best Season Two Winner Y’Anna Crawley, DeWayne Woods, and Beverly Crawford.  I have been featured on several local projects for Rodney Block, Epiphany, Kwestion, and more. She frequently performs at various Little Rock music venues.
