Ya Toyah is not a musical act, shes a movement. When spoken out loud in her native Polish, the words I Ya Toyah translate to Its just me. These simple, but powerful words act as an unwavering mission statement that guides every aspect of her career as a musician, singer, composer, producer, remix artist, and performer. As a one woman army, she meticulously oversees every step of her career; from the songwriting, recording and mixing of her music, to the programming of each and every light used in her passionate live performances. In just a few short years, this Chicago area phenom has released several critically acclaimed recordings, organized the creation of multiple award-winning music videos, and toured the United States multiple times. I Ya Toyah effortlessly combines elements of industrial, pop, electro, darkwave, and alternative rock into a unique aural tapestry that acts as the perfect backdrop for her intensely personal lyrics; but its the power and versatility of her voice that has the music industry talking. Her potent vocal performances effectively deliver a message that is modern, relatable, and speaks to the paranoia of everyday reality.
