Her name stands for “sweet and lovable,” given by the mother of this singer, songwriter, actress, host and record label owner. The artist known as SAYONNE (pronounced: SIGH-ON) worked her way through the music and entertainment industries, landing a successful 2019 hit, “2 Worlds (Remember).” Now she has a hot new single, “Hot Sauce,” as well as an album that is forthcoming!
During her early years in the music industry Sayonne spent time nurturing and developing her craft. It was in those days where she made her first debut into the starlight with an original Gospel tune, “I Need You,” for the compilation, ‘Lord Just Me and You.’ Sayonne continued in the path of inspirational music – writing/recording “Dream Big,” ”Reaching,” and an anti-cyber-bullying tune, “Taken Over.”
Coming from a close-knit family who’ve supported her dreams throughout her journey, Sayonne made her artist debut with her hit fusion song and music video “6 (Ignited).” Sayonne is the product of hard-working immigrants who migrated to the United States from the island of Trinidad and Tobago. In her music video, ‘6 (Ignited)’ she made sure to pay homage to her Caribbean roots and heritage.
While in college, Sayonne studied musical theater and after earning her BFA degree, she dived right into stage work on national and regional platforms. Sayonne held starring roles in productions of Dreamgirls, Hairspray and the Off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors.
After years of stage work, Sayonne made the move towards the pop and R&B world in 2017. She went from performing in a regional production of “Sister Act” to launching her own label, 5 Bars Records. Sayonne also has focused on building her social media platforms, where she has several followers.
“I felt it was time to start my own company and change career direction after doing musical theater,” Sayonne explained. “The stage work was great but after years of flying to auditions on my days off just to set up the next show after I was working on would end, I decided to dive into not only doing pop and R&B but to be a label and publishing owner as well.”
In 2019, Sayonne released the single “2 Worlds (Remember),”of which the video created a splash on music channels nationwide. She also issued the five-song EP, 2 Worlds, which earned many downloads on Apple as well as spins on Spotify.
In 2020, Sayonne released to fans a new edgy single, “Hot Sauce.” The singer was inspired by brother, Christopher who serves as his sister’s creative/artistic director. He is her sounding board. “I wanted to write a song to get Chris to dance and what I had created so far, he flat-out said, ‘sorry, I’m not feeling this!’ So, I came up with ‘Hot Sauce’ which shows off a spicy side of my personality. After a short listen, Chris said, ‘you’ve got a hit!” Although the pandemic rages on, thanks to her fans, she successfully released another smash single, “No Time” which highly resonated with her audience and has many anticipating an album or EP release.
Recently, Sayonne has been gearing up to release new music and more music videos. She’s known by many for her energy, R&B/Pop vocal style and amazing work ethic to get the job done.
Sayonne is many things, “an innovator, edgy, classic, fashion forward with an extraordinary stage presence that will leave you thirsting for more.”
