As an artist, songwriter, and activist, Bianca “Blush” Atterberry is profoundly passionate. In both music and method, The Emmy Award-Winner penetrates the surface. Recognized for her work on projects with diverse artists across genres and generations that include Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor, Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, Rick Ross, Elijah Blake, Macy Gray, and Angie Stone, among others.
Accustomed to moving around at an early age, Blush circulated between Mississippi, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, where she attended the Pittsburgh High School for Creative and Performing Arts. Post-graduation, Blush lent her talents to Emmy Award-winning soundtrack, Fly Boy Fly: A Tuskegee Airmen Documentary. Shortly after relocating to Atlanta, Georgia, she laid down the groundwork for future relationships with fellow artists, music publishers, and various labels. It was then that the songstress began writing for artists in international markets. She was honored by Koreaboo.com as one of the top ten Black Women Killing It In The K-Pop Songwriting Game Right Now, recognizing her work with Korean Pop artists like EXO, NCT 127, and Taeyeon.
However, the primary source of Blush’s inspiration is her son, Niko. He is a steady reminder that even when the odds are against us, we can still be triumphant! At the young age of two and a half, the ten-year-old was diagnosed with Autism. A developmental disorder that affects 1 in 59 children. Blush proudly advocates to educate and spread a fundamental understanding of the autistic spectrum. Quoted saying, “The more we educate ourselves about autism, the more we can begin to accept and understand those who are different from us.” Blush is presently developing an animated series to raise awareness about Autism for younger generations.
As a black American amidst a socio-economical uprising, Blush is heavily invested in using her platform and talents to educate and honestly amplify the black experience. Blush is firm in her convictions, from art to injustice. She presently stands with fellow creators in advocating for songwriting to be paid fairly, among other initiatives. Blush is currently based in Los Angeles, where she continues to write for top tier talent while navigating her career, activist work, and motherhood.
