Although laid back and soft spoken, at the young age of 21, she has a stature and presence that commands respect. Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Alexis is of Latina-West Indian heritage. Her parents hail from the countries of Panama and Barbados. She is a cultural enthusiast seeking to bring some of her diversity to her music. Alexis takes her craft as an artist very seriously, singing since the age of seven. She graduated from Tri-Cities Performing Arts High School in College Park, GA, and further honed her musical artistry under the guidance of Jan Smith and Marvelous "Marvin" McIntyre. As evidenced in her breathtaking photos, Alexis is also formally trained as a model and looks forward to partnering with lifestyle brands. In 2014, Alexis signed to Atlanta-based indie label Grown Money Entertainment (GME). Her first single "Balenciaga" featuring Kwony Cash received club and radio play in the Southeast region stamping her as the female to watch from the ATL. Alexis has been featured in several blog and media publications including TheSource.com, Hip Hop Weekly, RnBMagazine.com, and KontrolMagazine.com, among many others. Understanding that she already has a voice among young females, Alexis Ayaana launched the "I Hold My Own" Tour visiting and speaking with middle- and high-school aged girls throughout Atlanta about achieving your goals and the value of self-confidence. Currently, Alexis Ayaana is gearing up to release her 2nd EP "Twenty-One". With production from Drumma Boy Fresh and The Underdogs, her sound and style is signature to her brand... young, edgy, and sexy.
