“DJ Michael Ealey of Streetwise Radio has discovered another talented artist Oya Thomas. Oya is a talented amazing R&B, Soul, Jazz, Blues, Gospel and Pop Music singer from Los Angeles California. When I heard the song “Love” on Streetwise Radio I thought this voice is unique and uplifting. I had to listen to more. Whether she is singing Gospel, Blues or scatting on a Jazz tune this lady can sing. Oya is educated as well. She received a B.A. in Psychology at LMU Loyola Marymount University and an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. Brains beauty and a singing talent, Wow! Oya’s debut CD “Spirit Of Oya” has music for every ones taste. The song “Love” is the first single off the CD. It has that Reggae, R&B soul sound and the lyrics are inspirational. It makes you want to tell the ones you love, just what she is singing about. I recommend this CD it is a compliment of the remarkable singers life and gift.”

“OYA is a soulful songstress whose music will take you on a journey that’s nostalgic enough to take you back to “the good ole days” (she does a remake of “A Change is Gonna Come” need I say more) but modern enough to be appreciated in this era. Her album “Spirit of OYA” which is available now is an eclectic mix of jazz, soul, gospel and a little bit of rock. The live instruments make you feel like you’re at a concert and you can close your eyes and get lost in this music for a while.”

“Soulful independent artist, Oya Thomas, highly anticipated new single “LOVE” is now available on iTunes. “LOVE” is an up tempo thankful salute to the tales of life swaddled by the blessings of love. It is a heartfelt tribute to the divine beauty of the world as felt through the Spirit of Oya.”
