COLORSXSTUDIOS Presents Two New Artists That You Need to Know: London-Born, Made in India Nayana IZ & Memphis-Born, Mississippi-Raised KIRBY
We’re so excited to see two new very special performances from Nayana IZ (Different Recordings) and KIRBY (Play It Again Sam), presented by COLORSXSTUDIOS, in the space of just one week! North London based artist Nayana IZ presents her latest track ‘Partner in Crime’, while Memphis-born, Mississippi-raised singer/songwriter KIRBY shares a breathtaking rendition of her newly released single ‘Superpower’
Soundtracked by a stellar electronic beat that weaves together elements of jazz, ‘Partner in Crime’ highlights Nayana’s impeccable versatility as a vocalist – seamlessly weaving in and out of her singing voice to lay down the sharpest of verses.
Born in London, made in India, Nayana IZ is a culture-clashing force to be reckoned with. As soon as she could start creating her own music, Nayana knew she wanted to mix the spirit of Indian language and dance in with all of the different music she had been raised on; to empower young girls (particularly from her native land) to find their own authentic voice, and to express themselves. Since releasing her explosive debut solo single ‘How We Do’ last year, Nayana IZ dropped ‘SMOKE & FLY’, her exceptional debut EP which features stand out cuts like ‘TNT’, ‘WALKING’ and ‘FINAL HOUR’.
KIRBY shares a striking rendition of latest single ‘Superpower’. Featuring a slick drumbeat and glorious guitars, it’s KIRBY’s powerful vocals that pierce through and shine the brightest here as she sings those uplifting words with an infectious warmth and honesty.
Kirby Lauryen Dockery, also known by the stage name KIRBY, is an American singer-songwriter from Mississippi. She is also the very talented songwriter behind hits like “FourFiveSeconds” by Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney, “Tell Me You Love Me” by Demi Lovato, “Die With You” by Beyoncé, “Only One” by Kanye West and Paul McCartney, “Break Your Heart Right Back” by Ariana Grande, and more. Her second project, a 9 track mini-album will be released through Play It Again Sam in 2021. ‘Superpower’ is the first single from the project, with the original version featuring D Smoke.
