NAKAYA is a 19-year old singer-songwriter and musician from Los Angeles that i came across through a repost on SoundCloud, and I’m sure glad i did, because she’s wonderful!
Her music is a blend of electronic, R&B and freak folk genres, the result is an amalgamation of styles often found in her musical upbringing. A Los Angeles native and current student in the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University, she is deeply inspired by moments of silence and reflection witnessed between the two ever-changing cities.
“Colored Lines” is a strong first single – I’m impressed by it – both in an instrumental and melodic sense – not to mention NAKAYA’s voice is amazing!. Keep your ears peeled, this is definitely an artist to watch!
