BAYA is Andrew Murray—a singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist who blends musical influences from a diverse spectrum of backdrops, spanning Norway, the Ivory Coast, Scotland and New York.
His journey began when he reconnected with his father: the two had never previously met and he journeyed to Harlem to meet him. BAYA’s father, Sompohi Baya, is an artist himself and was the one of the first West Africans to receive an international art scholarship to study sculpture in Rome, followed by a stint at the Art Academy in Bergen.
BAYA is soon set to release Oslo // Harlem, his debut EP, few details of which are yet known. He recently released "A Call To Say Hello," a cut taken from the EP, and today he has offered up "Loon," another track from the upcoming release, as one of today's free downloads.
