Solaya Love and John Atonic are a collaborative mastery of singer/songwriter Solaya Love and producer/composer John Atonic. Their skillfully crafted sound is co-written and independently produced by Solaya and John and mixed and mastered by John. The carefully blended genres illuminates a journey through the breadth of human experience exploring magnetizing bass and drum syncopation, playful beats and seductive vocals that call to the heart and speak to the feet.
Their one hour live show consists of extended dance mixes of their songs featuring Solaya's juicy freestyle vocals and silk fan flow dance, and John mixing Solaya's vocal looper and FX controls, garnished with two delicious go-go dancers.
