In our ongoing 15 Minute Live Performance series, we’ve featured a lot of great talent from north of the border. Today, AJA is the latest Canadian artist who has captured our attention. Whatever is going on up in Canada is pretty strong. Anyway, her musical chops are very impressive. And guess what? AJA is only 17. Yes, your eyes don’t deceive you. This talented artist is barely able to drive.
Yet, when you listen to her, her voice and songwriter has the maturity of someone far beyond her years. Blending her astute pop sensibility with a splash of modern R&B, AJA’s sharp and oftentimes personal lyrics pack a punch and manage to light up your ears in the process as well.
Here’s the setlist from AJA’s performance:
Better Off Without You
Love at First Song (Unreleased)
Big Girls Don’t Cry (Fergie Cover)
AJA joins a growing number of musicians who have performed in our burgeoning live series. Foy Vance, Robert Finley, UPSAHL, John R. Miller, Cedric Burnside and the Grammy-nominated ensemble Cha Wa have all featured. You can watch all of the previous episodes here.
