The debut EP from Grace Tandon aka Daya showcases the Pittsburgh native's bright, soulful vocals and electronic-tinged sound. Though only 16 years old at the time of the EP's release, Daya commands the mike with a highly resonant vocal style that fits nicely next to more established R&B artists like Beyoncé, as well as similarly inclined contemporaries like Lorde. Working with producer and songwriter Gino Barletta, Daya delivers a handful of empowering, passionate anthems that also work well on the dancefloor. Included on Daya's EP is the single "Hide Away."
