Every Monday, we present a new artist that, in our opinion, deserves your attention. This week, we introduce you to Los Angeles-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Dyasono. The artist, who was born in Indonesia, and then relocated to Malaysia before moving to the US, recently shared her debut single “Hello, You”; a downtempo electro-pop track that is a positive reminder to always stay optimistic about the future.
Dyasono started playing the piano at 8 years old and gradually picked up other instruments like drums, bass, and guitar. Surprisingly, singing came late but she finally decided that her voice would be the instrument she would focus on. She started songwriting at 15 and she credits her education at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood as the experience that helped her overcome her shyness with her writing. Dyasono is not a real newcomer as she has been involved in other bands in the past: nevertheless, this is her first solo effort and her most personal project to date.
The artist explains that her multicultural background certainly influences her electro-pop sound. However, in this first release, these touches stay discrete and subtle. She plans to incorporate more traditional Indonesian instruments in her future projects.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/258420030″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
