As a young woman from inner city Memphis, Takaya is telling her story through a new kind of soul music that reflects her honesty and authenticity.

With hints of Duffy, Adele, Sharon Jones and Janelle Monáe, street-soul artist Takaya vividly illustrates her upbringing in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Memphis, TN, in her self-penned songs. Combining profoundly personal lyrics with a dynamic voice, her music speaks to the power of triumph over circumstance, and in Tayaka’s case, she is proving that the difficulites of one’s past can be the perfect inspiration for future success.

Takaya is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
