JAYA

Quirky, melancholic, and full of vibes.

Jaya has been singing since before she had front teeth and that’s no exaggeration (which she didn’t have until 4th grade, but that’s probably a different story). 

Jaya completed a certificate in Jazz studies at Victoria Music Conservatory in 2015, and from there launched herself head first into the Victoria music scene performing as much as possible and in a variety of groups and genres. 

Over the last few years Jaya has increasingly focused on original projects- Wise Child and her self-titled solo project JAYA.  In 2018, Jaya was selected to partake in Banff Centre Singer Songwriter residency, which was the final push to pursue her solo career, and record a selection of songs written over the last few years. 

JAYA recorded her debut solo album “Everybody’s Getting Married” in 2018 at Infinity Studios in Victoria, BC with Chicago’s Damian Wiseman. Her single Maybe is the first single off the EP, shortly followed by summer jam “Learn To Swim”.  JAYA’s sound is melancholic yet quirky, touching yet dissonant, refreshing and familiar. It’s going to grow on you.
