Soraiya is a songwriter from Vancouver, Canada who grew up singing Indian devotional songs, studying Western classical music, and listening to the folk music of the 60's. She comes from a family of poets, painters, drummers, and good singers.
In 2015, after years of recording and performing with various artists in Canada, the U.K., and the U.S., she began co-writing with award-winning American songwriter Michael Anderson (best known for his country hit "Maybe It Was Memphis"). In 2017 they released Soraiya's acoustic folk album That Last Tear, which has been lauded by her fans. In 2018 they released an EP that would eventually lead them to develop their Nashville-based Americana rock 'n roll band Hard Redemption.
