Born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, Aáyanna learned very early on that writing was the easiest and most effective way of communicating. She started writing her own songs at as early as 7 years old, and recorded her first one with her dad’s travel set up at 9. From then on she continued to write and record songs here and there, but released her first song in 2017, right at the end of her 10th grade year. The summer going into 11th grade, her family moved to Atlanta where she would perform at any festival, party, or bar that would allow her to.

One small festival led her to meet producer Juberlee, who has worked with Playboi Carti, Lecrae, Mulatto, and more. This is where she started experimenting outside of the traditional R&B sound and added elements that would set her apart. She continued to release music on all platforms, and did background vocals for artists like SwaVay and Andy Mineo. In 2021, Aáyanna started releasing more frequently and getting playlisted. Shortly after, her single Let Me Find Out caught the attention of Avant Garden where she signed her first record deal.
