Ayana John is a Caribbean Pop Recording Artiste and Songwriter from Barbados West Indies. Known for her local hits, Bajan Story, Guns ‘n Roses and Paper Chase which fuses elements of the Caribbean genres, Reggae and Soca with Pop Music, she refers to her personal musical style as ‘a Caribbean feel with pop appeal’. She has just won the award for Best Reggae Singer in November 2020 by The Lady Flava Radio Network Awards in Connecticut USA.
For the past decade, dynamic vocals, choreography and energy have become a signature of her live shows. O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Reggae on the Hill, Nottingham Carnival, MIDEM, NACA and SxSW are just a few of the stages upon which Ayana John has performed with audiences in excess of 15,000 patrons. Displaying a modelesque physique, Ayana has attracted Barbadian designers such as Nefertari, Pauline Bellamy and Lucy Lui to model their designs on stages and red carpets. As a former Ms. Barbados Bikini and 1st runner up Ms. Barbados Universe, a passion for fashion and stage preexisted before the music.
Holding a Bsc. in Pure Mathematics from The University of The West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, a MBA from UNICAF University and a Diploma in Popular Music Practice from The University of West London, Ayana explains that it was her mother’s wish for her children to all graduate from University. She states that she made a promise to her mother that while pursuing a career in music that she would at least complete her Bachelor’s. Ayana notes that her academic experiences have gifted her with the knowledge of time management and its importance to her personal and professional life.
Ayana seeks to create musical connections beyond The Caribbean because she acknowledges that there is potential for major growth of her brand in territories such as the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States. One major step towards realizing this growth is the musical collaboration with Swedish producer Tom Banfield on the Top Floor Remix, which has received placement on nine (9) Spotify playlists; the official music video for the songs Cash Flow and Rockin Wit U produced by AndyM has reached 22,000 views, by the close of 2020.
Since Rihanna, the presence of Barbadian musical acts on the international music charts has been lacklustre; Ayana hopes to revive that Bajan presence. With the official release of her new album, Breezin', scheduled for June 20, 2021, the singles, Akshun & Akshun Summer are the official singles off the project. A music video for Akshun Summer will be released on June 08, 2021.
