Key 88 Productions, LLC presented pianist and soul singer extraordinaire J’Aira Pryor in concert. The concert, “Sweet Love” was held at The Hill House Association Kaufmann Center

Singer, songwriter, pianist, producer J’Aira Pryor is a creative musical force making powerful sound waves throughout Pittsburgh and beyond.  She has a diverse musical background ranging from classical piano, gospel, pop, and rhythm and blues.  She has impressively been able to fuse these sounds into her own brand of soul music.

J’Aira credits her performance at the legendary Apollo Theater as a musical turning point in her life.  Overturning the Harlem Native audience in her favor has given her an inner confidence she can carry on any stage.
