Ayanna Witter-Johnson

Line up: Ayanna Witter-Johnson (vocals, cello, piano) – Tania Ilyashova (piano) – Ed Riches (guitar/bass) – Michael Osbourne (drums)

Singer-songwriter and cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson is a rare exception to the rule that classical, jazz and alternative R&B cannot successfully coexist. As a composer, Ayanna has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, Hugh Masakela and the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Urban Classic program. Since releasing her debut EP in 2017, she has extensively toured the UK and several countries in Europe. This autumn will see her first full-length album. Because of her musical progress, mesmerizing vocals and uncompromising lyrics, Ayanna is able to span both the classical and urban worlds effortlessly.
