MYOA is a singer-songwriter from the coast of West Africa, that has seen her travel and live in England and now the USA. Her name means “God brings joy,” and she shares in a general press release that “I was created to inspire and impact certain truths and to give joy to people who listen to my music.” MYOA’s musical journey began when she sang in school choirs, competitions, and concerts as a young child, writing her first song when she was nine years old. While she was pursuing a career path in college, she decided to hone her songwriting and keyboard skills, and that led her to discover her own music style and purpose. After graduating with a college degree, she decided that she would enroll at Hollywood, California’s prestigious Musicians Institute, and learned the art of vocal performance, music production and landed an internship with Universal Music Group.
MYOA now resides in Houston, TX and performs live with her band at various acclaimed venues including The House of Blues and Fitzgeralds. She also released her debut album, Beautiful Journey, today and shares that “My Beautiful Journey is a collection of songs over many years that expresses my journey in life and allows me to share a piece of my heart to my listeners. This album is a combination of unique sounds and expressions, which flow perfectly giving the listener a euphoric experience. In life, there are ups and down but each moment is part of your journey and you can choose to look at it in a beautiful way and see beauty through the ashes and enjoy the simple and little things in life.”
