She’s got that fire in her eyes, hunger in her heart and the talent to match. With a voice as smooth as honey, Ayana John, has managed to create a buzz in her homeland, Barbados, as one of the finest Soul acts, to date, and the interest has extended throughout the wider region and beyond.

While participating in her high school pageant where she placed second, she was asked by the committee of the prestigious local pageant Ms. Barbados Bikini to enter and in the year 2005, she won the pageant securing her highest individual score in the talent segment, singing Jill Scott’s smash hit, ‘He Loves Me’ – Lyzel E. She went on to win Ms. Caribbean Fiesta in 2006 held in the island of Canoaun, The Grenadines and subsequently was first runner-up in the Ms. Barbados Universe pageant of 2006. During the Ms. Barbados Universe pageant, Ayana received her first Barbados Music Awards nomination for Best Dance Single, ‘Bajan Story’ on which she collaborated with Barbadian Reggae Artiste Buggy Fully Loaded. The year, 2007, she released her solo self-penned effort, Guns and Roses, which proved to be a smash hit in her country receiving another nomination at The BMAs for Best Music Video. Collaborating once again with producer KB Sharp, the tracks, ‘Bajan Story’ and ‘Guns and Roses’ were followed up by the single which had dominated airplay in Barbados in the year 2008, ‘Paper Chase’. The single featured Barbadian Reggae Artiste LRG, and received a record 15,000 downloads on the local download site, Gotrhythm.com, making it the highest downloaded locally produced song, to date.

Putting down one of the best performances ever at the BMAs, Ayana was asked to meet Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe Award winner Regina Belle backstage at the awards to talk about joining her management team and production label. Also, Glamour Magazine’s fashion editor Kirk Shannon-Butts approached Ayana about being featured on the magazine’s website where the artiste discusses her fashion dos and don’ts and also scored a feature on the New York Carib News web-mag.
