Akayzia

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

Akayzia is a London based singer songwriter, who performs poignant tales of modern city life.

Misa Akayzia Parker grew up touring with her parents company with artists like Tina Turner and David Bowie. She also spent a few years living in Queens New York, which has heavily influenced her music.

Akayzia has written songs, which have been, featured in major TV shows, films and co-written with artists such as Groove Armada and Paul Hartnoll of Orbital fame.  She has worked with award winning drummer and producer Sebastian Roachford who also recently collaborated on the new album from Julian Lennon.

 Her artfully delivered songs are hard to pigeonhole. She draws from influences such as Grand Master Flash, Pavement, Dinosaur Junior, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Sonic Youth.  She is quickly developing a strong musical identity.

Travelling from sensitive vocals to red-blooded riffs, through subtle distortions, Akayzia mesmerises her audience. With a fair number of shows, club nights and even a newly set-up fanzine, Akayzia shows urban life through her lens and does not hesitate to reveal through her music her sometimes dark life experience
