"Offering up soulful, empathetic music as an outlet for others to follow suit." ~ Pitchfork
Enigmatic, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter, Yaya Bey, is a multi-hyphenate artist who “effortlessly mingles the personal and political with enthralling freshness,” as described by Pitchfork. Bey’s most recent EP, The Things I Can’t Take With Me (2021) was met with critical praise from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Noisey, FADER, Harper’s Bazaar and more. As a multidisciplinary artist, Yaya has completed multiple fine art residencies with the MoCADA Museum in Brooklyn, NY where she curated programs focused on the Black woman experience, a theme that is intrinsic to her musical output. Yaya is currently working on her next creative endeavor, a full length album and short film set to release next year.
