Bio

Theya is a singer-songwriter, artist and skilful piano player based in Falmouth, UK who just released her new single 'Femininity' which is about society's misconception of femininity and a right to be free, the right to own yourself, your body. Theya's goal for 2021 is to release an album. Songwriter is mainly creating in pop and electronica music genres. She is interested in incorporating house, jazz genres' elements into her practice and playing with melancholic and sad themes that are crucial to cover in today's society. The main key in her music is drawing an image of emotions through her compositions and sad and meaningful lyrics.

Theya's first single as an independent artist called 'I Opened My Heart' was played on BBC Music Introducing in Devon and Cornwall led with a great feedback. The song is about opening up to a person and being rejected, laughed at, so an actual event has driven Theya to create this emotional piece. Out of collaboration with inspiring film producer Kotryna Daraskeviciute and a dancer Agne Sotirovic helped to complete Theya's vision to express this song through emotional dance movements.
