Washington D.C. - March 16, 2015 - In an industry that is considered a "man's sport" due to the low representation of females, Christian hip hop artist Blaze has made several notable strides since the release of her first album, He Reigns, in 2009. As a way to demonstrate her growing maturity in not only her music but in her development as a young woman, Blaze has decided to use her birth name, Brea Miles.
For Miles, the name change comes at a pivotal time in her blossoming career as a recording artist. She is currently finishing up on a new album, True Since '91, which is slated for release this upcoming summer. The album is packed with amazing features from some of the best and brightest artists urban and Christian hip hop has to offer. Working with notable producers, JahRockn Productions, the album features appearances by Heesun Lee, MC Jin, Beleaf from the Dream Junkies, Angie Rose, Canon, Mia Claire, Sean Terrell, Sharp Skillz, Jazz Digga, Chris Belmont, and Mahogany Jones just to name a few, making up the album's landscape providing a fresh sound from a young lady that will definitely make you "Do Something".
When asked why the name change, Miles stated: "It's all about growth. In the beginning, I didn't expect for my ministry to grow as it has. I've also grown and matured as a person and as a young woman that’s been reflected in my music. It's funny because the name Blaze means the exact same thing as my regular name Brea and my last name means 'who is like God'? The name may change but the passion will forever be the same." In addition, Brea wants to make certain that fans and people who express interest in her music know exactly who she is: "It was becoming hard for people to find me online as Blaze because the name has become real popular with other people using the name."
Brea Miles intends to pick up where Blaze left off and promises not to skip a beat. Look out for her new album, True Since '91, coming out this summer. For more information, log onto AlwaysBrea.com
