Artist Focus: Alicia Keys

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Known for her husky voice and unforgettable melodies, Alicia Keys is renowned globally for her singing, songwriting and pianist skills. Raised in New York, her music career started at the age of 15 and 14 years later she still continues to thrive.

Her music is something which both Mimi and Rachel grew up with and continue to listen to today. Join the [H]our Vibes hosts on this Artist Focus, as they follow Keys from the start of her career all the way to her latest album – bangers incoming!
