Biography

Composed of Misa Akayzia Parker (vocals and rhythm guitar), Adam East (lead guitar), Emmanuel Folorunso (bass) and Nick Rodgers (drums), Akayzia is a spirited and emerging indie-pop band.
Bored with life as a solo singer songwriter, Misa decided to start a band with her long-time friend Adam who she met while attending music school. With influences such as Grand Master Flash, Pavement, Dinosaur Junior, Blind lemon Jefferson, and sonic youth, they quickly developed a strong musical identity. The duo was soon joined by Emmanuel and Nick, whom like Misa love underground comics. Misa spent her teens in Queens NY, but was born in London like the other Akayzia members' who’s heritage merge into chilled-out rock strengthened by evocative yet thrilling lyrics.
Travelling from sensitive vocals to red-blooded rifs, through subtle distortions, Akayzia mesmerises its audience. With a fair number of shows, club nights and even a newly set-up fanzine, they show urban life through their lens and don't hesitate to let it all go.

Lyrics

Green Piece

Written By: Akayzia Parker

Green Piece

He stood in the corner spitting hate and slang
Hush so quiet before the hurricane
It’s so lonely when everyone looks away
I didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece my daddy’s gun
Boys don’t cry little solider
Sweet dreams that come undone
He plays with the trigger wondering what makes a man?
So much violence to numb the pain
Oh if only we could wash and be pure again
I didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece my daddy’s gun
Boys don’t cry little soldier
Sweet dreams that come undone
Didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece get your gun
Don’t cry little soldier
Sweet dreams will come undone
(Trouble) Give it up; I don’t want blood on my hands
(Trouble)To sir with love, but it’s not enough .No no it not enough
I didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece my daddy’s gun
Don’t cry little soldier
Sweet dreams (storm is raging) come undone
Didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece lost a son
Don’t cry little soldier
Sweet dreams ( like a hurrcane) who’s having fun
I didn’t mean to disappoint you
Green piece my daddy’s gun
don’t cry little soldier
Sweet dreams have come undone
have come undone












sleepwalking

Written By: akayzia parker


When i look at you my naked emotions come up and cut
I’m wasting in solitude am i still grasping to fragment of you
Ooooh oh oh oooh
Sleepwalking
Ooooh oh oh oooh
Sleepwalking
In the heat of the night
Doesn’t wrong feel right
Doesn’t it still burn the hardest lessons we learn
Another dim lit sky
Why dose summer die so soon
Sleepwalking
Memories in cold grey dawn
Flicker like slideshows all frayed and warn
Drive fast with the windows down,
would you do it all over that then or this now?
