Paytra, at just 16 years old, bought a one-way ticket to New York City to chase her music dreams. She found herself in the midst of it all, and quickly learned that being a young female with a lot to say wasn’t going to be a walk in the park.
But Paytra didn’t let the obstacles defeat her. She knew that if she was going to make it in this city, she needed to up her game: musically, mentally, and physically. So instead, she dedicated herself to her craft, honing in on countless hours of dance classes, vocal lessons, and performances, and emerging as a true force to be reckoned with.
Her music, a blend of modern beats and R&B, alt-funk, and soul influences from the ’90s and ’70s, is both powerful and fun, tackling topics like self-reliance, sexism, racism, and sisterhood with infectious energy and joy.
The journey of overcoming in order to become who she needed to be was painful but also empowering, and it fuels the fire behind her lyrics; you can feel Paytra’s fear, rage, anxiety, passion, and strength in the music. The once shy and sweet girl found her voice.
Paytra’s mission goes beyond just creating catchy hooks and dance-worthy beats. With a heart for empowering women, she has invested in female entrepreneurs through her work with a New York-based VC syndicate company. Through her music and business ventures, she is paving the way and breaking down barriers for women to claim their space in industries that have long been dominated by men.
