     Zilfa Owen was born in Manhattan, NY on September 13th, 1987 to a Jamaican mother. With an entrance made in the heart of the Big Apple, its no wonder that she was destined to soar to greater heights. After living in Brooklyn, her family relocated to Philadelphia where she spent most of her childhood and still considers home. It was there that her parents discovered her talent by accident one day while she was singing to herself. However, it wasn't until she relocated yet again to Atlanta that she started to explore her hidden talents. Now in Atlanta, Zilfa found herself in the emerging city that was home to acts like TLC, Usher and Toni Braxton. She excelled in poetry and writing and could always be found in her room working on a project. At 13, Zilfa started juggling school and recording songs with local producers. She also began performing at local clubs in Atlanta and was featured in the magazine "You Betta Recognize". While participating in weekly showcases, Zilfa caught the attention of an A&R searching for a third member for his group "BabyLove". After auditioning, she was chosen and endured daily "bootcamp" which included hours of working out and perfecting their performances. BabyLove worked hand in hand with the producers, The Platinum Brothers, and gained interest from major labels. Unfortunately, the group disbanded shortly after. Disappointed and discouraged, Zilfa set her focus back to school and work. After graduating at 16, college seemed like the next step but music still played in the back of her mind. As a dare, she auditioned for a singing group and was chosen for the female trio "Tomboi". The girls began development and created a demo while working with RL of Next, songwriter Atozzio, and Oak. Tomboi began to create a buzz in Atlanta and had the opportunity to auditions for labels Def Jam and Universal Records. After 2 years and no movement, the girls agreed to move on and Zilfa found herself back at square one. Instead of letting her dream die, Zilfa honed her talents and prepared for a solo career that she had always dreamed of. Currently, Zilfa is writing and recording her EP "Lose Control", which is slated for a February 2012 release. Her music showcases her writing skills, energy and her fusion of pop and R&B. She is already receiving rave reviews for her songs "Fantasy" and "Action" so there is no doubt that she has a distinctive, fresh voice and sound that is sure to draw her audiences in.. Stay tuned for Zilfa in the new year, big things are coming and you won't be waiting in vain!
