ROYA is a songstress blending pop, jazz and her eastern roots into a soulful, spirited expression of truth. She’s part east, part west, a mixture of worlds and cultures. Her voice, both sweet and sultry, pairs well with an acoustic guitar and the midnight sun.
For Roya, music is a powerful gateway for the expression of personal truths and reflections on spirituality and love. The power of Roya’s music emanates from the enduring sincerity and tenderness of her lyricism, which testifies to her spirited, sometimes genre-defying sense of creative possibility. Whether performing solo, as an acoustic duo, or with her five piece band, she brings a depth of musicality and energy to the stage. Roya was recently awarded the Edmonton Arts Council Cultural Diversity in the Arts grant to record her debut album Breath & Being, set to release in 2021.
