Riya always felt she was a little different.
She is a young, 15 year old girl with big dreams and the determination to make them come true.
Riya was born and raised in Leicester, England with music and dancing in her DNA, thanks to her parents. Her very early years she can remember listening to her dad’s collection of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Coldplay along with her more recent influences from Sia, Adele, Rihanna and Drake amongst many others. She has grown up listening to music that stirs the soul and wants to be able to write music that one day will ‘move’ people.
