Pia Mia Biography
The story of this Pacific island girl born and raised on Guam is surely the stuff pop star dreams are made of. In 2013, Ryan Seacrest debuted her independent single “Red Love” and the accompanying video premiered on Vevo. She now has more than 17 million YouTube views, more than four million SoundCloud streams, over a million Instagram followers and almost half a million Twitter followers.
Her rise began by posting cover songs on YouTube, which she continued after moving to Los Angeles in 2010. Then at a photo shoot for apparel brand Pink Dolphin, she met the company’s CEO, Neima Khaila. Khaila became her manager and introduced Pia Mia to Abou “Bu” Thiam, who manages Chris Brown and is also known for his A&R work with Rihanna, Kanye and Jay-Z. Thiam and enterprising entrepreneur Pia Mia then partnered to form Wolfpack Entertainment, with Pia Mia being the first artist signed to the label.
Her debut EP, The Gift is now out on Wolfpack/Interscope Records.
