Aáyanna is a 21 year old artist based in Atlanta by way of Chicago. She learned early on that writing was the easiest and most effective way of communicating - crafting her own songs at the age of 7 and recording them by the age of 9. She spent years honing her unique style, experimenting outside of traditional R&B sounds and adding elements that would set her apart. In November of 2022, at only 19 years old, she released her first track "Risky" through the LA independent record label Avant Garden.
Since then, Aáyanna has released four singles with her debut project "Don't Look Back" set to release in the fall of 2023. Each track is paired with a distinctive visual that she both helped write and direct with her best friend and creative director, Dayja. In addition to her own music, Aáyanna has featured on "Olympics" with Emotional Oranges and "Refill" with Rory and Chiiild.
Aáyanna has also been busy on the road this year. She opened as the sole direct support on Emotional Oranges' 23-city North American Tour, which sold out venues like the Hollywood Palladium in LA and Brooklyn Steel in NYC, and is set to open for both EO and Nonso Amadi in Europe in the spring of 2024.
