Support 88Nine And This Artist:
Ayah ( yatun, plural Ayat ytun) is the Arabic word for sign or miracle
A multitalented & self-taught singer / songwriter / composer who possesses a voice so very enchanting in its purity, Ayah, aka The Ayahtollah of Rock & Soulah, has experienced a fairly nomadic life & found her growing world indelibly touched by a vast array of musical genres, cultures and social climates. These elements would inevitably play an influential role in her writing.
At the age of 9, Ayah discovered her voice and her passion to express herself through music. By the time she was 14, she had already mastered playing the piano and had learned the fundamentals to engineering her own material. While developing her genuine sound, Ayah drew from the musical prowess of both contemporary artists like Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and Beyonce, soul stirrers like Sade, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu and timeless legends such as Anita Baker and Whitney Houston.
Ayah, now 21, creates her own unique brand of music, an eclectic infusion of classic soul, R&B and hip hop.
Today, Ayah has settled in the city of Toronto and is working with a solid team of producers, preparing to dominate with her debut offering.
This is my life, it is not a hobby. This is my one true love, not a one night stand" - Ayah.
