CIARA: THE EVOLUTION OF CIARA

by

comment

Ciara Harris transcends genre and has a chance to change rhythm and blues like no one else has done up to now. As far as the urban scene in Atlanta, Georgia, goes, everyone is doing what she is doing, but not as a collective.

Growing up in Georgia, Ciara has seen a great deal of change in the musical landscape. One day, she told her mother that she wanted to pursue a music career, and while still in high school, she hooked up with producer Jazze Pha. Pha not only produced the album's single, "Get Up," featuring Chamillionaire, but has served as a musical mentor to Ciara since they met. With her debut, Goodies, people dubbed her the "Princess of Crunk and B." She worked with some of the finest hitmakers to deliver some jaw-dropping club romps.

On Evolution, Ciara is writing about the events from her formative years in the music industry. With the smash hit "Promise" by Polow the Don (Fergie's "London Bridge") and the Neptunes and Lil' Jon each producing two songs on her new release, Ciara has crafted another multi-platinum sonic dream that has captured the zeitgeist of today's urban canon and is embarking on a journey to a brave new world.
