A consummate artist with an astounding vocal range and a wealth of songwriting credits, Jeremiah Abiah is not only a vocal practitioner of the highest order, but he is also a master of the craft of vocal performance.
His many recordings and live performances, under the name ABIAH, serve as seminars in technique, control, range, and sonority. These skills have made him one of the most renowned celebrity vocal coaches in the music and entertainment business and an esteemed Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music.
Jeremiah Abiah’s mastery of his craft, his meticulous attention to detail, and his desire to help other artists led him to formulate The ABIAH Way, his successful Artist Development and Vocal Coaching Firm.
Also, he has been signed as a solo recording artist for Universal Republic Records and has released a number of projects on that label and independently. Abiah’s music has become synonymous with exquisite vocals, meticulous interpretation, and unique compositions.
