This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.
The vocal percussion and voice virtuosa, multi-talented “Butterscotch” is the hottest upcoming young artist of today’s music scene. Being the world’s best female beatboxer, she has created a unique style. While she beatboxes, she sings and plays either guitar or piano, performing her own compositions and jazz standards. She even emulates the trumpet in her performance. Butterscotch is heavily influenced by jazz, classical music, Hip Hop and R&B, ranging from Frederick Chopin to Billie Holiday and Stevie Wonder. She is truly
a one-woman show, performing either solo or with her band. She also does Beatbox workshops and DJ events. In 2007, Butterscotch gained international fame by appearing as a finalist on NBC’s America‘s Got Talent. She won the hearts of many, and through mass exposure she began her journey to stardom. After her rapid rise to popularity, she started to make her mark and found herself performing alongside music
legends such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Patti Austin, Wah Wah Watson, Mike Patton, and Dan the Automator and has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Talib Kweli, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am, Raphael Saadiq, Sheila E, and Rahzel. She is featured on albums by SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten) and on George Benson’s “Song’s & Stories,” and prodigious pianist Beka Gochiashvili & DJ Logic’s “Chillin in Batumi.“
Butterscotch is currently finishing her debut album to be released in 2015. She stars in the new show “Vegas Nocturne” at Rose.Rabbit.Lie in The Cosmopolitan Hotel, that has received rave reviews for its original concept and creativity.
