PATRICIA BAHIA (pronounced Bah-HEE-yah) is an indie pop singer-songwriter and cancer survivor based in Los Angeles. With a voice as smooth as polished stone that’s been through the rock tumbler of life, and a collection of frank, sparkling indie pop tunes in the vein of Aimee Mann, Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles, she lives her bucket list and inspires others to do the same.

In addition to being a performing songwriter, Patricia frequently collaborates with artists and bands, and has garnered placements in TV Shows and promos, including ABC, NBC, TVLand, Freeform, and MTV and the opening and end title credits of the indie films The Price of Silence, and The Rose Bowl.

"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...
