The first few years she was unsure about what career path she wanted to take but all that changed when she bought her first Blues CD at a local store in Harlem and immediately felt a connection. She says, “It felt like home.”

She immersed herself in the musical form, its history, and watched countless documentaries about Blues greats like: HowlinWolf, Little Walter, Muddy Waters, and others.

Acantha’s Blues-influenced, sensuous, soulful voice alongside her tremendous and fine-tuned stage presence has taken her on a journey from a residency at the infamous ‘Supper Club’ in Harlem to performing all over the world.

She did  hosting for ‘The Box’ in NY and London, frequented by the rich and famous such as Simon Cowell, Tom Cruise, Sting, Axl Rose, Jude Law, and Billionaire George Soros are just some of the few A-listers!
