Grand like Lorde but also sunshine-bright like Katy Perry, singer and songwriter Daya first climbed the charts as a 16-year-old high school junior. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she began taking piano lessons at the age of three, and moved on to voice lessons at the age of ten. Songwriting came later, and in 2014 she signed with the Z-Entertainment label based on her demos. A year later, her single “Hide Away” took off thanks to early adopters like Tyler Oakley, Perez Hilton, and other superstar bloggers. In 2015, Daya released her debut, self-titled EP on Artbeatz.
