Breakups can be hard. However, sometimes beauty comes from a broken heart. Satya turned to music after a devastating end to a relationship. Her EP "Flourish Against Fracture" features mellow, soulful tracks about healing and returning to self love. The 20-year-old songstress attended Oakland School for the Arts. She currently splits her time between The Town and The Big Easy.

Satya will be performing in Oakland this Thursday. Follow her on Instagram for updates on her upcoming show.
