Fresh Five: This Week’s Top Funk, Soul, and R&B
Each week, our fantastic music directors pick the top five tracks from our most recent releases in various genres to make selecting the perfect track for your project much more effortless.
This week, we are featuring our top Funk, Soul, and R&B from our Associate Music Director Alia Johnson.
This month's tunes are packed full of summery soul to get you through the heat wave.
Growing up in a family of musicians ranging from opera singers to Irish fiddlers, Alia’s love of music was unavoidable. She started playing piano at the age of five, eventually learning the violin, marimba, and banjo. After discovering her passion for composing for visual media, she earned her bachelor’s in composition from California Institute of the Arts in 2019 emphasizing film scoring.
As the assistant to a composer in Los Angeles for two years, Alia found herself drawn to the world of music production. Now at APM, her interests come full circle. When she is not writing music, you can find her baking, watching musicals, or working on a puzzle.
