Genie Santiago
Genie Santiago
Genie Santiago is a Boston based singer, songwriter, and poet. Emerging from rough beginnings, her music and poetry reflect the many obstacles she overcame throughout life. Despite the negative, Genie Santiago always found solace in music. It was a way for her to escape reality. She began writing songs and performing in elementary school and continued to grow as an artist into womanhood. It wasn't until 2017 when Genie Santiago decided to invest all her energy and love into music as a career. It truly became her main priority and focus in life. Her goal is to empower women all over the globe to love themselves unconditionally and stray from the ideals of self hatred that society has placed upon them. Genie Santiago's debut EP, “Know Your Worth", portrays this powerful message for all to hear. The sounds of R&B, Hip-Hop, Dancehall, and Pop can all be found in her music.
