Alyia Yates is a 2019 Audio Academy Fellow here at KALW. She knows how to show up with a strong voice in all of her stories, such as this interview with SOL Development and a look into freeing your cheeks at a twerk church.

Her mixtape is sure to take your imagination on a trip. Listen in as she sets the stage and then performs the story behind one of her favorite songs, "Out on a Limb," by Teena Marie.

Tender was the kiss when you held me captive in your sweet embrace
My lips begin to burn and my heart beats faster than the normal pace
