The Rundown


         Many people are blessed with a voice capable of concocting beautiful tones.  However, few artists possess the ability to take their art and put it inside of you; to  manufacture melodies that materialize the emotions they convey.  Anhayla’s delivery transcends her music and makes it something tangible, something the listener can feel. As she sang it seemed as if the lyrics floated off of her vocal chords and wrapped around my ear drums. She exhibited an intonation that absolutely enchanted me.  “All I Want is You”, is the kind of song capable of  rejuvenating your hope for love. Then, “Stuck in Limbo” strikes down those hopes, as Anhayla illuminates the emotional havoc love wreaks. Not only is she beasting on tracks personally pioneered, she’s bodying covers. Anhayla’s vocal prowess is clarified in her acoustic rendition of Trey Songz, “We Can’t Be Friends”. Rawness oozed out the speakers, and her vocal versatility takes center-stage without the background of a beat. I thouroughly enjoyed her female counterparts to songs originally casted for males, like Miguel’s “Sure Thing”, and Lil’ Wayne’s “Single”. None of the covers feel forced thanks to Anhayla’s organic projection, and she adds spice to her versions with a sassy feminine touch. Anhayla has draped her talent in a unique presentation. The combination results in a dose of music that gets you feening, in all the right ways.

About Demi

A love for music was cultivated in me from conception. That love has harvested an obsession, an addiction that I just can't quit. From the moment I could hold a pen, I can remember writing songs with my dad; composing melodies with him and brainstorming ideas. I would wake up late at night, and he'd be in the living room writing, singing, and altering his clothes to fit his individuality. Like most children, I remember wanting to be like him, and wanting to create something that would make him proud. Creation was our connection, especially through music. Since then, music and its cousin poetry have been my means of connecting with the world and conveying my beliefs. Music has and always will be my motivator, my comforter, my hype-man, my confidant, my psychologist, my professor, the one that truly understands me. I'm not selfish though, I want to share music with the world. I understand that music can embody everything, for everybody. Music is one of the universal constants that crosses all boundaries. So let's get connected.
