Daya is a Grammy-winning platinum artist who recorded her first single at 16, when she was still a junior in high school. In this episode, Andy and Daya talk about the pressures of achieving success at such an early age, and the ups and downs working with family members (her mom is her co-manager). They also share stories about the realities of songwriting, using fame as a platform, and finding your true self through music.
Born Grace Martine Tandon, Daya most recently appeared on Billboard’s annual “21 Under 21” list for the second consecutive year and was the youngest member of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in 2017. She has previously been listed as one of NYLON’s “21 Cool New Artists 21 and Under” and Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know”. In 2016, she was featured on the 5x platinum track “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers and released her RIAA gold-certified debut album Sit Still, Look Pretty.
