Songstress Ria Boss swung by Live FM over the weekend to talk about her EP ‘Find Your Free.’
She spoke to ThizLive host Bianca Buckman about what inspired the “healing project” as she describes it, and Black Girls Glow, a musical collaboration project she is a part of.
Listen to interview below.
Born Maria Emmanuelle Grace Bossman-Damiba in London, Ria Boss sprouted her wings through childhood in Accra, Ghana, found flight and life lessons in New York City and found healing and herself in Los Angeles.
Living with her grandmother for the majority of her formative years, she witnessed her mother’s growth and determination to success on the side-lines. Motivated by the strong will of her mother and the everlasting love and support of her grandmother, Ria Boss is the foundation of her humble beginnings. Piano lessons, choir, ballet, tap, and more—she was opened to a world of endless possibilities through the world of art from an early age.
Molded by the situations she was placed in, (and sometimes placed herself in), the music remained the constant therapy and source of expression.
Ria Boss – a Ghanaian-Burkinabe momma’s girl— is confident in her constant progression and careful analysis of her own vulnerabilities.
She released her EP “Find Your Free”, a “healing” project as she describes it in 2017.
