Romy Dya (NL)
Romy Dya is an R&B/pop artist and songwriter from the Netherlands. She has been in the game for a while now, but was mainly in the background as a featuring artist or involved as a songwriter. Internationally she has worked with Ghostface Killah and Busta Rhymes, but her breakthrough came in 2017.
Her voice became known worldwide after she was featured on the song So Far Away from Martin Garrix, David Guetta and Jamie Scott. According to Billboard her performance on So Far Away can be described as ‘vulnerable and powerful’. That song made her realize that she no longer wanted to be in the background. This opportunity came right before she wanted to quit music and worked as a lawyer. For her it was a clear sign that her purpose is to inspire as many people as possible through her music and personality.
Coming from an unstable youth with a lot of trials and tribulations, music was always like therapy for her. She ran away from home at the age of 14, used drugs, fell into a bad crowd and eventually ended up in juvenile detention. She always struggled with loving herself because she never felt she was good enough for anything. Romy has been through a lot in life and you can hear that in her voice and her songwriting. She has a story to tell.
Now Romy is embracing who she is and everything she has been through have made her become a strong and powerful woman. She wants to inspire as many people as possible through her music, her story and her personality.
