Since Sweet Pea emerged as the "Queen of Neo Funk", she has introduced people to a new sound by blending Hip-Hop and Funk with a taste of the Gospel. After years of performing Gospel and R&B, Sweet Pea turned her sights on the Hip-Hop community which led to the creation of Paula M Daniels Publishing, an organization committed to recording, producing, mixing and mastering for the “Queen of Neo Funk”.
Through the infectious feeling of the Funk and the spiritual awareness of the Gospel mixed with the cultural connection of Hip-Hop, Sweet Pea is dedicated to establishing a footprint by reminding us all where we came from, revealing where we are, and being an inspiration for what is to come.
Sweet Pea’s true edification was self-imposed. Her determination to cover the full spectrum of the music business led to vocal training by Dee Knapp and musical theory instruction from Charlie Miller. Jook, a DTP Producer, introduced the “Queen of Neo Funk” to modern production methods which led her to APC Studios where Sugarland’s Scott Patton’s recording and mixing experience was highly influential. Additionally, Sweet Pea’s rare opportunity to witness Glenn Schick’s mastering technique would prove to be priceless.
Sweet Pea is an active writer and publisher member of ASCAP with several registered titles in her repertory. In being a CD Baby Artist, Sweet Pea’s music is distributed internationally and her songs are available for sync licensing through diverse licensing channels such as TV, film, video games, and more. Sweet Pea is also a registered artist and copyright owner with SoundExchange.

In her own words . . .
"I came from the bottoms; and, I can still hear those trains as they're rolling through. It sounds like the tick of the clock. Yeah, it's my time." -- Sweet Pea
