Her submission of Newbian King was selected by Pandora, which led to her very own Taija New Radio channel. During her first sold out showcase, “The New Experience," New released her debut EP“Color Me Complex." Last year the full project was accepted by Pandora.

Her showcases range from east coast to west, hitting major cities and small towns;Brooklyn; Los Angeles; Pelham, NH and many more.Last year she completed “The Pride Tour" where she performed at three Pride Festivals in Worcester, MA; Hartford, CT; and Atlanta.
