Teish O’ Day was born in London, England. Having been influenced by her mother, a professional blues singer, it was here age three that Teish first developed a yearning to sing. Traveling through America, with her mother and father - an American Air Force Captain, Teish was thrown under the musical influences of her parents, which included the likes of Rick James, James Brown, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin and many more. As Teish drifted through the American heartlands with her family, she started to absorb the culture of American Hip-hop, which became part and parcel of her development. Returning to England, Teish yearned to put her words into practice and began her climb to success in releasing her debut album ’Commitment’ in 2001. This impressive musically acclaimed album has been described as a mixture of eclectic fusions, that comprises of a rich and elusive blend of R&B and reggae beats with subtle jazz inflections, reminiscent of distinguished divas like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.  “The Times” said “New heir to soul jazz crown with huge crossover potential”. In the year 2001, Teish performed at The Royal Albert Hall, which she describes as one of the most measurable and favorite experiences of her life! Singing a moving and heartfelt ballad, written by Burt Bacharach for Dionne Warwick, at the ‘Burt Bacharach and Hal David’ Tribute concert. Teish won the audience with a heartfelt and breathtaking performance. Burt Bacharach said “ Teish O’ Day is the most exciting discovery since Dionne Warwick. She has amazing control and presence”. In 2003, Teish looked for a more truthful representation of herself. After learning the business side of the music industry Teish wanted to take creative control of her own career, in order to progress and promote herself as well as other UK based artist. Teish and friends formed a company called Ghet’O Fabulous UK allowing a freedom to express music without boundaries. Fast-forward now to May 30th 2005, which has seen Teish release the first single from her sophomore album entitled “My Commitment” on Ghet’O Fabulous UK Records.
