New York City native, Yaniza, is a bilingual singer-songwriter whose music can be described as pop with acoustic undertones. She sings in English and Spanish and is celebrating her first Spanglish release, “Contigo” (2019). Her tunes bring joy and sunshine to its listeners through catchy lyrics meshed with acoustic guitar, ukulele, or piano base. Much like her home city, Yaniza's music is a melting pot of calm, upbeat, and everything in between.

The song even crossed over to the children’s music realm with a feature in Listen & Learn Music. Yaniza’s most recent release, “Losing” (2019), shows her somber side as she sings about heartbreak.
