"You can’t help but be uplifted and inspired by these tunes. Bahia is a gifted songwriter with impeccable timing and amazing vocals."
From the ethereal power-pop of “Resilient” to the snappy feel-good lilt of “Good Day,” and the heart felt ballad “Blue On Top Of Blue,” [Bahia] obviously has a deep pool of songwriting talents . . . The lyrics are honest, intriguing and appear to be straight from a soul who has lived the stories...
– Mark Waterbury
"feel-good pop with graceful lyrics."

WHY WE WALK Anthem Gets Posi Award Nomination and National Press
All over the U.S., news organizations reported on the release of my song, Why We Walk, in September 2015 (details below). Why We Walk was nominated for a Positive Music Award (The Posi Awards) in the Social Justice category in 2017. Also in 2017, the sheet music for Why We Walk was included in powerful new songbook 60 Songs for Social Change, available through Empower Music and Arts.
September 2015 Press Release: "The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition has teamed up with singer-songwriter, and ovarian cancer survivor, Patricia Bahia, to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer. "Why We Walk," written by Bahia and produced by Jon Hayes, was released digitally by DreamSongs Records earlier this month, which is "National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month," to help raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The song, inspired by her own journey, is set at a walking pace, and is being featured at several NOCC Run/Walk events this month and throughout the year." To read the whole article, click here.
