PATRICIA BAHIA (pronounced Bah-HEE-yah) is an indie pop singer-songwriter and cancer survivor, reborn as the musical lovechild of Paul McCartney and Joni Mitchell. Armed with a voice as smooth as polished stone that’s been through the rock tumbler of life, and an arsenal of frank, sparkling indie pop tunes in the vein of Aimee Mann, Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles, she lives her bucket list & inspires others to do the same.
  
Patricia's new full-length CD, Save Your Heart, is AVAILABLE NOW.

L.A. MUSIC CRITIC AWARD Nominated for:
BEST CD Female, and BEST ARTIST Pop/Rock Female


"This music is so full of life and passion that it is positively irresistible.”
– Music Morsels Reviews
 
"You can’t help but be uplifted and inspired by these tunes.  Bahia is a gifted songwriter with impeccable timing and amazing vocals."
--LAMusicCritic.com

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."
--Songwriter's Square

Looking Back to Look Forward 


It's early in the new year. I'm still getting used to writing/typing 2016. The holidays are over, and the calendar says it's time to "get back to it." But every year, I like to stretch things out a little, and spend some time at the beginning of the new year, reviewing last year. Looking back at everything that was just a thought at this time last year. And then look forward into the new year.

Even though sometimes it felt like I was slogging through waist-deep peanut butter, looking back I can see how much…Read more

Gospel-Jazz Roots Run Deep 

It was an amazing night last night, joining the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir on stage for their 30th Anniversary concert at the Paramount Theater. Revisiting my gospel-jazz roots, singing and sharing the stage with my OIGC choir family, and sharing the joy of the music. One of the highlights in a spectacular year. Below is a link to the video of me singing O Come Emmanuel with the choir, as well as some behind the scenes photos, including a couple of post-show photos with my musical brother, the…

Thanksgiving Gratitude 

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." --Melody Beattie


If you are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, Happy Thanksgiving!! And since this holiday is only celebrated in the US, if you are one of my friends and family members around the world, here’s wishing you a wonderful week!!

I hope you’re able to take some…Read more

Latest News: WHY WE WALK Anthem Gets National Press

The word is out! All over the U.S., news organizations are reporting on the press release the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition sent out a few days ago about my song, Why We Walk.

"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."
