The singer behind the hit single “Hide Away” isn’t even 18 years old, and has already released new music, performed on the “Today Show” and is gearing up to go on tour. I caught up with Daya at Electric 94.9’s Acoustic Christmas where I asked her how she’s taking it all in.
“I mean it’s just been insane for me, all of this has been happening. I should be a senior in high school right now so it’s pretty crazy. But, I love doing shows and I love meeting new people and kind of just putting myself out there and travelling and it’s all just been amazing for me.”
Daya will be on tour with Jack & Jack in February, and she revealed which city she’s most looking forward to.
“I’m looking forward to Pittsburg because that’s my hometown and I love playing for my family and friends and just to kind of check in with them and see what I’ve been doing, because I’m never home so it’s always a fun reunion when I’m home like that.”
As for artists she’d like to work with down the road, “I think a collaboration with The Chainsmokers would be really cool or Ed Sheeran. I don’t know that’s quite a stretch right now but he’s super cool and I think in the future sometime that would be awesome. “
It doesn’t look like things are going to slow down for the 17-year-old in 2016, either.
“I’m going to be releasing a new album, and I’m going to be on tour with Jack & Jack in February, and, I don’t know, whatever else happens I’m excited for it.”
