Detroit born and raised biological sisters, Anesha and Antea Birchett, comprise the singer/songwriter duo APLUS. Being products of a city known for its grit, fight and brute, these sisters know what it means to “go hard or go home”. Their resume demonstrates over a decade of penned and placed songs with the likes of celebrated industry notables including Beyonce, H.E.R., Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber, Teyana Taylor, Ciara, Mary J. Blige and many more. These placements have earned APLUS tremendous respect for their talent and skills. Needless to say, they are no strangers to the victories and trials of today’s ever growing and changing music industry.
Signing to Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins as songwriters in 2005, and then Universal Music Publishing Group in 2009, brought many lessons and successes to the world of Antea and Anesha. These 14 years as signed songwriters prompted them to get out of the studio and onto the stage; telling their stories only the way Top 40 music industry songwriters can. They released their first album, as artists, on February 9, 2018. From acoustic pop ballads of life, love and perseverance to smooth, soulful stories of heartbreak and betrayal, APLUS takes you on a lyrical and melodic journey of Pride, of Liberty, of Detroit. Having participated as writers on the Grammy Award winning BEST R&B ALBUM of the YEAR - the self-titled album by H.E.R. (song entitled Gone Away) - APLUS is proving that they are a force raising the bar, forcing others to take notice and determined to take their deserving seat at the table as respected songwriters, artists and professional business women in music.
