About Byrd: Byrd was born on July 16, 1988, the same day that Washington, DC was founded in 1790. Raised in DC’s Ward 4 neighborhood of Petworth, she began studying the art of hip-hop emceeing and poetry writing at the age of 10. Growing up in DC and being surrounded by a historical culture of musicians and influences such as: Trouble Funk, George Clinton, and Chuck Brown, reassured her that she was destined for greatness and a life of music, among her many talents.
In high school in DC, Byrd continued to write and battle rap wherever she found opportunities. Deciding to follow her dream of becoming a female emcee, she moved to Atlanta, GA for her collegiate studies. While there, she had the opportunity to work with many notable music industry producers and songwriters, and continued to develop her craft as well as promote and host major concerts, highlighted by legendary DC go-go band TCB Bounce Beat Kingz, featured on Wale’s “Bait” record.
After graduating from college, Byrd returned to DC to be a youth development professional and community connections specialist in Adams Morgan, DC, but the conception of "All Hail The Queen" with notorious Washington producer AB the Pro and her signing with rising innovative entertainment company StudioNation sent her into a full time career in the music industry. Fully immersed in creating a new sound & movement in hip-hop, Byrd not only wants to top charts but also seeks to empower, uplift, and mobilize the next generation of leaders in youth worldwide.
"All Hail The Queen" is a testament to DC, the empowerment of the increasingly influential youth, and the evolution of popular music in the nation's capital. In 2015, she utilized her talents and incredible stage presence to win the DMV LIFE Showcase over some of the best talent in the DMV.
