Born and raised in East York, Phoenix is a Toronto kid through and through. She began her musical journey at the age of six when her mother formed the group Caribbean Gems. The group was made up of Phoenix’s cousins as well as her sister, and they toured the city singing Jamaican folk songs. By age eight, Phoenix was writing her own songs. She attended Royal Conservatory of Music, where she took both piano and vocal lessons.
Phoenix attended Wexford Collegiate School for the Arts in her high school years. While there, she participated in the Musical Theatre program and was in the Seasonal Variety Show Cast almost every year.
While at Ryerson University, Phoenix was part of the Urban Hip-Hop Union (UHHU). This experience solidified her love for the Hip-Hop culture. During this time, Phoenix also released her first solo album, Books, Bucks & Beats Vol. 1: Holla at a Schola. She released the follow up album the following year.
Currently, Phoenix is part of Hip-Hop/R&B duo TRP.P, whose follow-up album 2TRP.P is set for release September 6.
