Biography

Sadiiya Rock
(Noun) Sah-d-yah: whimsical, talented and young spirited; one who loves expressing themselves through song.

The journey of life has been a coming of age process for this 22-year-old Brooklynite. She began cultivating her voice at a very early age with vocal coaching from Uncle Ray (Raymond Rock), a member of the 1970/80's Band Crown Heights Affair. Talent runs in the Rock family, from her cousins comedian/actor Chris Rock to comedian Tony Rock. Sadiiya Rock is applying the same focused driven work ethic to her own career.

Sadiiya attended the famed Tada, a theatrical youth ensemble in New York while simultaneously attending acting workshops with Casting Director, the Late Maria Greco. Her innate sense of fashion design landed her an internship with BETs (Black Entertainment Television) Wardrobe Department in New York. There she met veteran sound designer/mixer Charlie (C.J.) Jones, CEO of the newly developed Urban Melodic Entertainment (UME). At CBS, C.J. oversees audio for BET's 106 & Park, Inside Edition and Guiding Light. His mixing credits also include Showtime at the Apollo, Laffapolooza with Jamie Foxx, Spectacle with Elvis Costello and The Chris Rock Show. He recently won the 2008 Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mixing for daytime drama Guiding Light.

Throughout the years Sadiiyas has trained with Grammy Award winner and veteran vocal coach Gwen Conley. Most recently, shes teamed with choreographer Violet Galagarza (KR3Ts, Broadway Dance) who has focused on Sadiiyas stage presence, movement and presentation. Sadiiya had been working in the background, stylist by day, performer by night, with a court-side view to artists on their rise to the top; from Alicia Keys to Keyshia Cole, from Mario to Lloyd; she was taking notes. Sadiiya was starting to perform at prominent spots like the Village Underground, Joes Pub or book gigs like BK Fashion Weekend, Atlantis Music Conference and recently Hot97s Blaze The Stage. Shes paying her dues and building a name for herself.

The end result has given Sadiiya a strong point of view in which she has carved out a unique lane through her song writing coupled with an urban fused sonic canvass. At a time when there is so much fear in the world, I want people to believe they can be fearless through my music. She is a new organic funky presence in the world of Urban music. This is reflected in her influences, from Aretha Franklin to Gwen Stefani to Earth, Wind and Fire to Guns & Roses. She collaborated with noted German producer/songwriter, Marcus Brosch whos been producing artists from Europes version of American Idol and has done remixes for Brandy, Lionel Richie and Enrique Iglesias. Their teamwork resulted in the debut International hit Flatline, a song about fighting for the sake of love which is currently available on iTunes, Rhapsody.com and amazon.com.

UME is gearing up for street promotion of the single Lovalicious servicing the single to DJs and records pool in April and targeting radio promotion in May 2009.

Lyrics

Flatline

Written By: Marcus Brosch, Sadiiya Rock

Verse 1

Last try
My eye's drying out
These tears will no longer fall
Don't hide behind your walls
...Talk to me
B sec. Resuscitation

We need some healing (resuscitation)
Our love is freezing (resuscitation)
Communication is cold, oh, no
We need some healing (resuscitation)
Our hearts stop beating (resuscitation)
And I can’t reach you no more

Chorus

Flatline
Don't tell me I'm losing you
It ain't over till it's over
It's just a coma
Flatline
Baby love is the cure
It ain't over till its over
It's just a coma

Resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation

Verse 2

Rewind
Back to the start
Would you do it again?
Or would you cut this, cut that
I won't deny
The bad times
But breakin' up won't make it better
Stand up and fight for me

B sec.

We need some healing (resuscitation)
Our hearts stop beating (resuscitation)
And I can’t reach you no more...no, oh

Chorus

Flatline
Don't tell me I'm losing you
It ain't over till it's over
It's just a coma
Flatline
Baby love is the cure
It ain't over till its over
It's just a coma

Bridge

Resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation, resuscitation

... And if you love me, don't let go

Chorus

Flatline
Don't tell me I'm losing you
It ain't over till it's over
It's just a coma
Flatline
Baby love is the cure
It ain't over till its over
It's just a coma
