Hailing from Toronto, ON, pop-R&B artist, Aieysha Haws has unveiled her sophomore single, “Zodiac Signs”.
“My inner child comes out and is making friends in this song — the kid in you never dies,” Haws shares. “I wanted to lead with playfulness, and spark a quirky conversation that was framed to everyone’s favourite topic: the Self.
“I’m inspired by astrology and, while there are people who do and do not believe in it, it was important to me to create a sense of belonging for everyone in this song,” she continues. “I want listeners to be happy and feel good about themselves… It’s that sense of confidence and curiosity that connects the dots, and fun is in the detailed frequency of my questions and queries.”
These notions are organically encased by the very essence of who Aieysha Haws is; and it’s not just her— at 16,000+ streams and rising this year alone, her highly loyal fanbase, whom she dotingly refers to as the ‘Wise Eyes,’ are thrilled to orbit her lively and enchanting universe.
“I love learning new things, and meeting new people. My ‘Wise Eyes’ resonate with that same zest of personality and positivity, too.
“We celebrate the best love — a cosmic love — that keeps us connected.”
Check out “Zodiac Signs” below, and find out more about Aieysha via our mini-interview.
First off, care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Aieysha Haws. I am a lively, intriguing, R&B/Pop artist. I share my knowledge by transforming words into powerful stories that evoke emotions in my audience of “Wise Eyes.”
Tell us about the recording process behind “Zodiac Signs”?
I’m always recording myself humming melodies and snippets of songs, which is how Zodiac Signs came about. It might seem weird, but I started a conversation with myself, “What’s your zodiac sign?” was a common compatibility question. I wanted to show that you can change the tone of negative qualities by turning them into strengths with affirming lyrics to remind everyone that they are loved and celebrated for their differences. In life, we are all connected.
At the studio, I set the intention to be as versatile as the beat and I allowed my creativity to flow. During the process, I felt like I was at the centre of creativity, as a director. Spontaneously, the energy shifted and my imagination came to life. For me, it was a second time, I realized fantasy and reality intersect inside the booth.
What was the highlight of 2020?
Growth: 2020 just happened to be the year, that I was done settling for routine auditions and gigs – I needed to do something different, besides dancing around commitment. I chose to pursue my love of music, wholeheartedly. I thought strategically and redirected my energy towards artistic development, which allowed me to see the best parts of who I am creatively expressed in songs today.
What do you hope to accomplish in your career in 2021?
Great things have happened since I released my own music. This year has only been the start of my introduction, so far, I brought “Zodiac Signs” and “Butterflies.” These songs are facets of my personality. Two sides of the same coin, I just switched my mood.
I look forward to sharing the stage with other artists, to be seen and heard, while I continue to grow. There is an audience out there who are waiting for something new. They’ve probably stumbled onto my sound and style, so I encourage them to join me in my journey, listen, share, and support me because I’m excited to make more music for their entertainment.
Is there anyone out there you’d like to collaborate or open/close a concert with in the future?
I would love to collaborate with Lady Gaga. I guarantee we’d bring an incredibly different sound, and leave audiences in awe because I love the element of surprise like her. We both dare to be unique, so why not invite the world to listen and explore our differences? The stage is set to be multifaceted.
