Sophia Ayana

Sophia Ayana is a 20 years old Dutch/Ethiopian singer, songwriter & producer based in Amsterdam.

Influenced by pop, reggae, afrobeat and hiphop, her musical inspirations include artists such as Shakira, Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse and Bob Marley.

Being raised around gospel, African music, hiphop-dancers and growing up with influences from different cultures has led to creating an unlabeled and diverse sound and style.

Having spent the last year working with and writing for artists such as GirlsLoveDJ’s, Dirtcaps, The Flexican, Soulsearchin', Boaz van de Beatz, Far East Movement, Paper Diamond, KStewart, Skylar Stecker and touring with hiphop collective THE ISH as the band's singer, Sophia is now working on solo- tracks and setting up a solo live-set.

"Urban pop music spiced with my African roots and hiphop background along with a pure and positive message.”
