A native of Tokyo, Japan, Aya is a multi-genre vocalist & songwriter. This Japanese and African American singer has been dubbed a force of nature. Pulling influence from Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, H.E.R., Frank Ocean, Robert Glasper, Rihanna, and Jhene Aiko, Aya Ito has created her signature Pop/R&B/Soul fusion sound, while also incorporating her trilingual abilities (English, Spanish and Japanese). Aya has toured the US & Japan wowing crowds with her spirited performances and dynamic sound. Aya has been lauded for her absolute beauty and undeniable talent. Last year, Aya performed in Dubai and Tokyo, and made her first red carpet appearance at the "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" premiere. In December, Aya released her debut EP "Just Might". The lead single from this project has been airing on radio stations worldwide as well as in the states. With a focus on positivity, Aya hopes to reach her fans in a way that makes them feel good about themselves. Aya states “Music is something that will always be there for you. There is a song for every mood, emotion, and occasion. Being someone who creates music means that you can be a person to influence others and help them through whatever they are going through, whether it be having fun at a party, a breakup, a fight with a friend, etc. It’s a great feeling to know that you’ve made an effect on someone’s life, even strangers.” You can check out her latest project [hidden]
