Koza is an independent and determined synth pop Singer & songwriter and recording artist on a one woman mission.
Inspired by the likes of Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac and Mark Ronson she believes in the power of dreaming, the power of love and real connections; the kind that doesn’t require you to be in the same room with the other person to be able to actually feel how they are feeling. We live in a world where dreamers feel alone and powerless and I hope in turn I can inspire people one day.
‘Dreaming big & taking action to realize them is an act of courage and one that she is willing to go through in order to give music a proper shot’.
Born and bread in İstanbul, Turkey and growing upspending time listening to her parent’s music collection such as, Depeche Mode, No Doubt, The Cure and Fiona Apple,she became super impressed with UK and US music, leading her to prefer writing in English which allowed her imagination and opportunities to run further. From this love she started singing, song writing and performing locally around 13 years old taking part in singing competitions and gaining positive responses.
Finding huge inspiration in British culture and musical artists leading her to want to make the move to London to pursue music properly. The end of her freshmen year at Sabancı University she dropped out and applied to music schools in London in 2012 and it was here while studying Song writing in London’s ICMP for 4 years she found her break through.Having played a few shows and writing with different artists, she started gaining acknowledgment from the Turkish music Industry and in-turn was offered a Publishing deal by Universal Publishing Turkey. Although a big opportunity she decided to turn it down knowing that any type of local home grown Turkish success could in turn actually hinder her international chances of singing. It was this point and her positive look on things that kick started her mission on building a small but perfectly talented team who understand what she wanted to do in order to facilitate her international pop dreams.
Koza is an artist who’s prepared to work for what she wants and has taken time to do things right, so with this in mind be sure to hear more from this new determined artist over 2020.
