She has also been very involved in the arrangements of each of her songs. She has completed a multitude of songs in a wide variety of styles (Pop, World, etc.)
“There is a feeling that emerges in each one of us that causes us to behave in a particular way. That emotion is so deep rooted that we accomplish tasks which we wouldn't normally do or in some circumstances cannot normally do. When I sing that emotion is realized and fed. The music that I write is a direct result of a spontaneous feeling derived from a situation, or an era in time that I am focused on. I sing to feed that emotion, whether it is happiness, sadness, anger or moodiness. I use my power of song to create awareness and empathy...” -- Athenia
Athenia has an energetic and alluring on-stage presence as a performer. She has performed concerts in styles ranging from gospel to rock. She has performed solo shows and sang with artists such as the world renowned Swinging Starz
“My real passion is singing. For me, my on-stage performance is just the way my music radiates its influence through my body. My performance is a natural extension of the sound of my music." -- Atheni
In addition to her musical and performance talents, she also has the physical look necessary for mainstream pop marketability.
The music for her single A Song In my Head was recorded in New York under the leadership of Legendry Iggy Sweet Rains. In addition to writing all of the music, Athenia was responsible for the full production of this song.
