Grace Tandon, professionally known as Daya (pronounced dey-uh), is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is signed to ArtBeatz and Z-Entertainment, and released her self-titled debut EP on September 4, 2015, which includes the song "Hide Away". 

Daya was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she attended the Mt Lebanon High School. At the age of three, Tandon began to learn the piano, eventually converting to jazz piano at the age of eleven. By this time, she had also learned to play the guitar, ukulele and saxophone and flute. 

At eleven, Daya enrolled as a student at the Accelerando Music Conservatory, Pittsburgh, where she eventually met song-writer and producer Gino Barletta. Barletta, who visited the school as a lecturer, took an interest in the young singer, and monitored her progress until inviting her to Los Angeles in February 2015 to work on her original material. 

Tandon's professional career began when her parents accompanied her to Los Angeles to work with Gino Barletta, Brett McLaughlin, Britten Newbill and Noisecastle III at Paramount Recording Studios. It was during one of these writing sessions that her debut single “Hide Away" was written and recorded, and Barletta consequently introduced Daya to Steve Zap of Z Entertainment. A radio promotions veteran, Zap liked the song and was interested in helping to promote the singer, leading to forming an independent label with Barletta called ArtBeatz. 

Daya released her song "Hide Away" through ArtBeatz/RED Distribution on April 22, 2015. The song was well-received online, enjoyed support from a number of notable bloggers including Tyler Oakley and Perez Hilton, the latter commenting "There is something very special about Daya's voice". Billboard's Jason Lipshutz also featured the single on their official website, labelling it "a gorgeous debut". 

As of December 2015, the lyric video for "Hide Away" has reached over four million views. 

Daya made her television debut performing "Hide Away" on Today on August 21, 2015. 

Following a successful debut, Daya released her self-titled EP, which features six songs, including "Hide Away", on September 4, 2015. The EP was premiered in full a day early by Billboard, and debuted at number 161 on the Billboard 200, propelling "Hide Away" to number 40 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. 
The music video for "Hide Away" was released on October 28, 2015. 
On October 30, 2015, Daya released the physical version of her debut EP, Daya, through Target.
