Jahnel Daliya channels love, fun, and youth in her latest release, ‘While I’m Still Young’.
Northern Virginia-based artist Jahnel Daliya has a never-before-heard blend of folk, pop and rock backed by soulful vocals and songwriting, aimed to “finding the light in this heavy but beautiful world”. She began her journey in 2013 with a series of solo acoustic performances, and was performing with her band at music festivals, fairs, conferences and music clubs throughout DC and Virginia by 2015. Her sophomore album ‘In The Night’ was a finalist for the 2020 Wammie Awards, and the music video for her song ‘Gold’ earned a nomination for International Independent Music Video Award in 2020.
Her influences from 1980’s soul, pop, and R&B music shine in her music. Her childhood singing Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, and Paula Abdul is heavily influenced by her move to the gospel choirs of the DMV.
‘While I’m Still Young’ is “a fun energetic song about summertime, knowing yourself, what you want and living your best life at any age.”
I’M IN THE MOOD TAKE ME OUT
PARK THE CAR UNDER A LIGHT
HOPE IT’S THERE WHEN WE RETURN
I JUST WANNA HAVE FUN TONIGHT
NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD
I’M WITH THE BAND
I WANNA DANCE
I JUST MIGHT STAY OUT UNTIL THE DAWN
THIS IS HOW I WANNA LIVE
WHILE I’M STILL YOUNG
