Those “in the know” or who have seen pHoenix Pagliacci perform live acknowledge that she is hands down one of the sickest triple threat (producer/emcee/vocalist) performers in the game, and in Toronto. The recent grand prize winner of Honey Jam 2013, this Phoenix is certainly rising and has performed, recorded and co-written with numerous artists across Toronto (Yuri Koller, Junia-T of the Smash Brovaz, Eternia, Freedom Writers’ Tona) and the United States (Jean Grae, Rapsody and Laws, Souls of Mischief’s Tajai). As a female artist, especially one who raps, pHoenix looks up to successful artists such as Roxanne Shanté and Lauryn Hill, female artists who have broken the mold in the Hip-Hop culture and continue to inspire young females everywhere. Her extensive discography includes her albums Books, Bucks & Beats Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, EPs such asPretty Wings, which showcases her singing abilities and 88 Fly, a production collaboration between herself and producer Lord Quest (School Boy Q, Wolf J. McFarlane, Ab Soul, Tiron & Ayomari).
