Ayeasha is a lovely songbird who is finally allowing herself to fly solo. The longtime background singer is moving to the forefront, and she is giving us some "Old Fashion Romance". The singer's sweet, soulful sounds are soothing to the ears, and the song's lyrics call for a return to "Cinderella loving" -- quality time, romance, and treating a woman like a lady.
With Ayeasha's jazzy, neo-soul vocal quality, it should come as no surprise that the song is currently charting on Digital Radio Tracker Global Top 150 Independent Airplay and gaining the songstress some much deserved recognition. The single is a feature on the Covert Entertainment Soundworks compilation "Suspicious Packages 2.5". Listen to "Old Fashion Romance" below....
By day, the single mother works as a Crisis Intervention Specialist for the homeless and domestic violence survivors. By night, Ayeasha has been gracing stages for over 20 years, singing and performing in theater. She has sung behind many of R&B's classics entertainers, including Tevin Campbell, Taylor Dayne, Miki Howard, and Sheila E. In fact, her ties to R&B's legacy are also familial as her brother is Jamie Jones from the Grammy Award winning R&B/Pop group All-4-One. All-4-One, member Delious Kennedy has taken Ayeasha under his wing, keeping her busy and performing for the last seven years, up until with pandemic, in celebrity ventures that have included the "Singer's Night at Federal," a weekly artist showcase; "Flashback with Delious" and the Catalina Film Festival which he co-founded. Ayeasha hopes to follow in both their footsteps.
Some of her theater credits include playing the great Ethel Waters in "A Gathering of First Ladies," written by award winning playwright, Mildred Dumas, Mz. Motormouth Maybelle in "Hairspray" and Ms. Sofia in the It's Only Tuesday Production of "The Color Purple."
"Old Fashion Romance," which she wrote and arranged (and sang her own background vocals!) is a jazzy style R&B number that is in essence a dream for herself.
"I am a hopeless romantic and I believe many of us are. The thought of being romanced like in the movies, when a woman was cherished, flaunted, and spoiled, that is what 'Old Fashion Romance' is about. It is my daydream coming to life! I'm hoping it helps to revive chivalry and bring romance back as well as renew appreciation for old school R&B music," expresses Ayeasha.

"The Voice" at "Singers Night at Federal".
With her production company, Life is Ayeasha Productions, Ayeasha plans to continue to write and release more music. Janice Freeman, the popular contestant on the NBC singing competition show "The Voice," who passed last year, was one of Ayeasha's singing partners and dearest friends during the last five years of her life.
"My memories with Janice push me forward daily. I witnessed Janice living her dreams. She made me know that I can live mine now," professes Ayeasha.
