Life & Work with Sapphire Phoenix

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sapphire Phoenix.

Alright, thank you for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us how you got started?
I’m Tilischa. Better known as Sapphire Phoenix and born February 7, 1990, in Geisen, Germany. Grew up with my parents and younger sister in Saint Louis (North County). At age 5, I realized I loved music. I started singing in the school choir. Since then, I’ve been a part of multiple Saint Louis Choirs, Saint Louis Children’s Choir, and Ben Chandler & Kingdom Singers, to name a couple. For the past decade, I’ve been a dedicated singer in GEM. We are a local inspirational group. I’ve been able to travel and record with them. In January 2020, I decided to become a solo indie artist, now singing more RNB, Pop, and Neyo Soul music. I have since released 4 singles. “Distraction,” “Dumb For You,” “Love Don’t Change,” and “NO CONNECTION.” All of my music is available on any music platform.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road has been up and down for me, but I set goals for myself and work hard to accomplish everything I set out to do. I am grateful for my husband, recording artist Phoenix Keyz. He has made my journey more smooth.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am an independent recording artist. I song write, arrange vocals, and vocal coach. I’m known for my soulful yet pop sound. I have a heavy choir background, so I value a good blend and harmonies and the ability to lead a song. I’m very versatile in the genre. I think that sets me apart. I’m most proud of my newest single, “No Connection.” It’s opening doors for me.

What does success mean to you?
To me, success is accomplishing whatever goals you set for yourself.
