Joriah Kwamé is an upcoming writer and performer from Kalamazoo, MI. He is most known for writing "Little Miss Perfect" by Taylor Louderman and was a winner of her 2019 Write Out Loud Contest.  Most recently, he participated in the 2020 Johnny Mercer Songwriting Project and got to learn from master teachers Andrew Lippa, Stephen Bray, Lindy Robbins, and Craig Carnelia. As a result of the music that was the soundtrack for his childhood, Joriah began to admire classic R&B, Soul, and Jazz music. He performed his original  R&B/Neo-soul music throughout his younger years, opening for artists such as Anthony Hamilton, The Dramatics, Lyfe Jennings, SWV, and Keith Sweat. His passion for musical theater composition was sparked when he wrote and self produced his first project when he was 13, and has since written over 6 musicals ranging widely in style and subject matter-from a dark retelling of Pinocchio to a MLK biopic. @JoriahKwame
