We just got word that The Dinah will be welcoming Grammy Award-winning artist Daya as a headlining performer this year.  Along with hip-hop sensations Diiamon’d Royalty and Kodie Shane, musician and producer Leikeli47, and several world-renowned DJs, the 2019 event is shaping up to be one of their hottest yet!

After making her debut with 2016’s double-platinum single “Hide Away”, 20-year-old singer/songwriter Daya wasted no time in skyrocketing her career. Soon after, she won her first ever Grammy Award for smash collaboration with The Chainsmokers “Don’t Let Me Down” (6x platinum), released a gold-certified album, and headlined a national tour.

Just months after debuting at #5 on Billboard’s 21 Under 21 list in 2016, the Pittsburgh-born independent artist emerged as the youngest honoree on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 music list in 2017. Daya told Forbes her advice for success was “Stay humble, be fearless, and work, work, work, work, work, work.” She goes on to say, “My music reflects my strong belief in equal opportunities for all — specifically young girls and women.”

In addition to signing with Interscope Records and releasing two of her own singles (“New” and “Safe”), Daya has collaborated with Gryffin/Illenium (“Feel Good”) and RL Grime (“I Wanna Know”).

Currently finishing up her sophomore album, which will showcase the full depth of her talent and artistry, Daya hopes to continue the conversation on love, life, and the current state of our world with her fans, and looks forward to releasing new music in early 2019.

Stream “Sit Still, Look Pretty” and “Don’t Let Me Down”.
