"Music is a language we all speak, regardless if we can read or write it." - SOLAYA LOVE
One of her first childhood memories was dancing, singing, feeling free with no music playing in the background when suddenly, the calling to learn to read and play music became clear. Somehow, the violin was what came through as a desire. She then voiced her desire to be enrolled in violin lessons. With highly supportive parents and growing aspirations, she then continued to expand her instrumental knowledge through the pursuit of guitar, and continuing to sing. By the age of 12, she had a taste of what it meant to play in a real band and developed her stage presence. She performed as lead vocalist, rhythm/lead guitarist in a psychedelic rock band since age of 16. For 5 years they played various local venues and professionally recorded one track.
“Since I was a child, in my sleep, I would have dreams of hearing music. The next step was knowing music theory to write it all down when I woke up.” - SOLAYA LOVE
