Buffalo seeps into the music that singer songwriter Solaya creates. She comes from a family of musicians. Growing up Solaya set her sights on becoming a dancer but at about the age of 15 she had an injury and she needed surgery. Solaya says at first, she thought here life was over but now she is grateful because she found her true purpose. She says she didn’t start writing songs because she thought she would be good at it. She says she did it because she needed to write songs.
Now living in Atlanta, Solaya says she will always stay connect to her Buffalo roots. Her latest single is out now and is called Waves.
