MYOA (which means “God brings joy”) is a Singer/Songwriter whose musical journey has catapulted her from the beautiful coast of West Africa to the Queen’s land in England, and finally to the immensely diverse and invigorating music scene of the USA.
The eldest of three, Myoa began singing in school choirs, competitions and concerts, penning her first song at the age of 9. Her deep-seeded desire for a music career continued, but she opted for a traditional career path and headed off to pursue a college degree.
Studying at the University of Plymouth, she honed her songwriting and keyboard skills but upon graduation, she pursued a career in Finance for a while. Feeling there was more to life, Myoa opted for another path. Resigning from her job, she packed her bags and decided to explore opportunities to study music in Los Angeles, USA.
She enrolled at Hollywood California’s heralded Musicians Institute, learning the art of vocal performance & music production and landing a highly coveted internship at one of the world’s largest music companies, Universal Music Group. Often compared to the likes of Basia and Des’ree; Myoa sees greater benefit in creating her own lane in the music business.
Her debut album ‘Beautiful Journey’ which was produced by Nigerian musical genius Cobhams Asuquo and co-written by Myoa Sobamowo, validates her hard work as an independent artist.
Currently residing in Houston, Texas and quickly amassing a local following, MYOA performs live with her band at trendy intimate venues, and will be performing at a private event hosted by PEPSI for the Super Bowl event that will be held in Houston Texas. The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the NFL; the highest level of professional American football in the world, is also known for its entertainment performances.
