Bianca Atterberry, better known by her writer name Blush, is a Pittsburgh native singer and songwriter. Her career began at a young age when her mother moved her and her brother from Meridian, Mississippi to Ft. Dix, New Jersey. It was here that her mother discovered that music was the only way to keep Blush under control and focused. She quickly began putting Blush into fashion shows, talent shows, and auditions. At the tender age of four she was featured on the news for her outstanding performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” in a local talent show.
At nine years old, Blush and her family relocated Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she spent the rest of her adolescent years. At 14, Blush attended the Pittsburgh High School for Creative and Performing Arts. Here she learned music theory, syncopation, and had weekly vocal training. They taught her how to sing in Italian, Spanish, and French. It also opened her musical palette up to classical, jazz, gospel and more. She has performed in over 30 operas and plays with the Pittsburgh Opera Theatre and has performed for the Mayor and other important officials within and around the city.
After graduating in 2006, Blush decided to continue her musical path and was honored to be a part of an Emmy Award winning soundtrack Fly Boy Fly: A Tuskegee Airmen Documentary. She built quite a buzz around the city of Pittsburgh where she had been performing and networking for years. After reaching out to many of her mentors, she decided it was time to leave home. Blush knew it was time to take a leap into something greater, and she had no idea how it would turn out. In 2009, Blush moved to Atlanta
In 2011, while working in Atlanta, she met K.Michelle. They immediately built a strong musical bond and began to work heavily over the next couple of years. After doing mix tapes and releasing singles in hopes of being noticed K.Michelle landed a contract deal with Atlantic in 2013. Blush earned the opportunity to write the majority of her debut album Rebellious Soul, which sold over 80,000 its first week, and to executive produce her sophomore album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200.
Blush is known for her ability to quickly create and still effectively reach her audiences. It has opened the door for her to work with some of her musical influences such as Pierre Medor, Jerry Wonda, Eric Hudson, Toby Gad, Shea Taylor, Meghan Trainor and many more. She is not just a singer/songwriter. She is able to become the artist, the audience, and the executive giving her an all-over advantage. In the latter years of her twenties, she created a momentum that continuously pushes her closer to greatness, leaving the door open to help shape the future of music.
