Nordic popstars are dominating the charts, and Ea Kaya adds a much needed new voice to the lot. The young Dane’s got a special gift for storytelling and you’ll find yourself humming her melodies after a single listen. Ea Kaya has a wonderfully powerful, easily recognisable voice that contains just the right mix of childlike wonder and hard-hitting realism. “The true novelty of Ea Kaya’s style is her ability to marry her lovesick, intimate verses with an addictive and commanding chorus” (Arc Street Journal)
Growing up in Copenhagen, the songstress spent a handful of her teenage years sharing content online. The YouTube-wave hadn't yet reached Denmark, and though classmates found her weird, the determined teen hit a million views by the shy age of 15.
When finishing high school, Ea Kaya focused on her writing and engaged in various projects throughout the next few years. After mixing pop with everything from soul/jazz to acoustic rock – even switching to her mother tongue for a while - Ea Kaya felt certain about her sound.
Settling with electronic pop, the 21-year-od decided to record a solid amount of demos. In September 2016 indie label No3 (CHINAH, Kill J) received these. Same year, Ea Kaya was offered a record deal.
Three singles later, Ea Kaya's reached millions of streams, and she is tipped by industry heavyweights and countless tastemakers online to be one to watch this year. The debut EP "Fragile But Strong As Hell" is out in January 2019.
