Grammy Award-Winning Pop Singer & Songwriter

Grace Tandon, known by her stage name Daya, is an American singer-songwriter known for her songs "Hide Away," "Sit Still, Look Pretty" and "Insomnia."

Daya's musical background began with the piano, switching from classical to jazz at age 11. She picked up the guitar and ukulele and found her voice along the way. Her professional career began when she was invited to Los Angeles for a writing session with platinum songwriter and producer Gino Barlett in January 2015. One of the songs created in this initial songwriting session was "Hide Away," her debut single. Daya proceeded to record and release her self-titled EP in September 2015.

“Hide Away” went platinum in January 2016, just one month after being certified gold. Daya made her national television debut on The Today Show as Elvis Duran’s “Artist to Watch” in August 2015 and Billboard called the song “one of pop’s hidden treasures.”

Daya followed “Hide Away” with her second single, “Sit Still, Look Pretty," which peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her full-length debut album of the same name, "Sit Still, Look Pretty," was released in October 2016 to mostly positive critical reviews.

In October 2018, Daya came out as bisexual for National Coming Out Day.
