Earlier this week I randomly stumbled across a rather amazing woman with an even more amazing voice – introducing Ayah Marar!
Seeing her perform at The Old Queens Head in Angel was a hugely unexpected joy – pure, powerful vocals with plenty of sass and wit thrown in..the crowd were instantly in raptures. On stage with only a solo guitarist for company, this woman needed nothing more to impress us. Altho I think what I liked most was that she was sipping red wine in between tracks – my kind of woman!
Ayah, originally from Jordan, is set to be huge in 2012. She’s been making waves in the music scene for well over 5 years now, callaborating with Calvin Harris and DJ Marky to name, but a few. Now everyone is clamboring to remix her tracks and she is finally getting the airplay she deserves from Kiss and Radio 1Xtra. She’s currently touring (catch her at Brixton Academy on 6th April) and there’s an album in the pipeline.
Check out her latest track ‘Mind Controller‘ and other gems such as ‘Follow Me‘ and you’ll see what all the fuss is about. Trust me, it will not be long before everyone knows her name.
