VOYA are Linford Hydes and Eddie Al-Shakarchi. Influenced by the meticulous songwriting, opulent production and emotive vocals of the early 80’s British synth-based pop music, VOYA’s music embodies stylish, dark electronica, synth-pop and raw guitar-driven New Wave. Trained at The Welsh College of Music and Drama, Linford’s last musical venture was fronting art-rock troupe Palomino Party, who captivated audiences from The Accidental Festival at London’s Roundhouse to the BBC Horizons stage at Festival No. 6. Eddie is an award winning producer and multi-instrumentalist that shaped the sound of Boy Azooga’s acclaimed album 1, 2 Kung Fu! Together, they form a powerful songwriting duo, blending the alluring depth and power of Hydes’ lyrics and vocal performances with Al-Shakarchi’s musical virtuosity and production ability, creating beautifully complex musical soundscapes.
