Buy Tickets ›
Leeds-based electronic soul quartet Noya Roya are purveyors of lush enigmatic dreamscapes and grooving electronica.
Their compositions draw on influences from jazz, hip hop and electronic music while incorporating the sounds of the bass-heavy dub music synonymous with the Leeds music scene.
Featuring everything from rude 80s flavour to trippy disco and dreamy space jazz, their music demonstrates the merging of ethereal edginess and delicate songwriting.
Singer, pianist, writer, poet and creative being, Allysha Joy, is a key member of Melbourne collective, 30/70. Their growing success over the last two years has led her to further challenge her expression in a project of her own. Whether performing solo on Fender Rhodes or accompanied by her band, Allysha’s steady groove, husky vocal tone and unique style of writing emanates her own personal truth and illuminates a powerful feminine energy learning to be peaceful, giving and considerate of others.
Her debut LP ‘Acadie : Raw’ is set for release September 22nd with Manchester based label Gondwana Records. Allysha can be found floating between Melbourne and the UK, in person or via either of her monthly mixes on Sky Lab, Melbourne or Reform Radio, Manchester.
