Toronto based jennifer parkin is a performer, singer, songwriter, mathematician and the creator of her own solo electronic music project ayria. Jennifer parkin has become a bit of an icon in the underground electronic and industrial music scene with her unique writing, singing and performing style and music with an in-your-face sonic approach that combines electro, synth-pop, industrial, 80’s dance, distorted gritty beats and synths, haunting melodies contrasted with angry distorted chanting all wrapped up with pop structures and catchy hooks. Jennifer started ayria in 2003 and instantly shook the foundation of the electro and industrial scene by mixing her unique darker underground music style with striking pink feminine visuals. Jennifer began this journey while finishing up a bachelor of mathematics from the university of waterloo and always having been interested in science and science fiction, has tried to incorporate elements of this into ayria influence.
