Now on the cusp of launching her fourth LP, Okay Kaya (born Kaya Wilkins) is an artist at the peak of ambivalent lyrical mastery. Known for a trademark style of songwriting that juxtaposes the unglamorousness, instinctiveness and emotional toils of the human experience with saccharine sweet, rapturing vocal melodies, Kaya has pioneered an anti-poetic style of art that frees a generation from the weight of constant perception. 

Through acclaimed albums Both (2018), Watch This Liquid Pour Itself (2020) which won the 2021 Spellemann Award for best Indie/Alternative, Surviving Is The New Living (2020), and The Incompatible Okay Kaya (2021), the Norwegian-American musician and artist has built a dedicated following that spans audiences across physical and digital universes. Portraits of Kaya’s laconic wordsmithery have appeared in the form of lyricbots across social media platforms, and her critically acclaimed releases have seen support from Vogue, Dazed, Office Magazine and more. Kaya has collaborated with artists including Baba Stilz, Onyx Collective, Anne Imhof, Porches, King Krule, Deem Spencer, L’Rain, Austin Lee, and Adinah Dancyger and more, while her most recent release SAP (2022) was entirely self-written, performed, engineered, and produced.
