February 14th, 2012-SAN JOSE, CA South Bay Artist, mother of four and half of the femcee duo The Mamaz-featuring the skilled Oakland representative Aima the Dreamer-will release her debut album “American Me” on April 1st, 2012. The album will be released on www.persiamc.com and can be purchased for the price of $10.00. Persia has performed all over California, and has gained a strong following in various parts of the Bay Area. The release of this album marks not only a personal victory for the long time artist, but also a huge victory for emcees and artists who are also parents and partners in committed relationships. On top of that, Persia is an immigrant, originally from Iran, and this album is a reflection and celebration of that experience.

“As a mother of two daughters and two sons, along with being a wife, a lot of people believe that there’s no place to actually put out this type of creative expression. Fortunately, I have a very supportive husband and community and this album is a long time coming from me. This was also a very powerful experience for me in exploring how far I’ve come as an woman from the Middle East being fully immersed in American and Hip Hop culture. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that my whole heart and soul went into this project, and I’m proud to deliver it to the world”, remarks Persia.

The album’s title references many aspects of this concept. The title track delves directly into this concept while the rest of the project emerges as more of a reflection of the Americanization process. The album is received as classically structured Hip Hop with multiple hits. Whether it’s on the scolding hot lyrical track “How You Want It”, or the beautifully orchestrated track “Good Life,” with the talented songstress Dria Thornton. Persia delivers 100% quality on every track.

Persia is available for booking in shows, workshops, panels and speaking gigs for a reasonable fee or exchange. She can be reached at mspersia@gmail.com or you can call Dione Johnson at 206-854-1507.
