Aydra J Swan is her own rare breed. From humble nor-cal beginnings, the self-realized artist created her image as a very colorful and definitively unique one.
With no more than an 11'th grade education, she began her exploration of songwriting and media at 13 as well as the integration of spiritual practice and mental awareness. After the usual 90's child experimental years she found faith in a DJ and turned inwards towards consciousness, clean foods and the timeless pursuit of artistry and entrepreneurship at just 18.
At 24 she relocated from the Bay Area to LA and found herself cooking for celebrity clients while colliding with like-minded media creators and artists, eventually crafting a single with Nataraj Tribino (PM Dawn, Maroon 5, Nile Rogers) and releasing it in 2013 following her first self-produced EP 'A Future Sun' in 2012. 'Super Conscious' was followed by 'Signs in the Sky', an ongoing collaboration with East-West studios sound engineer, Jay Coffman.
She started playing shows across the Sunset strip and continued writing and engineering her own sounds as well as nurturing her love for photography and videography before meeting Emvy in the summer of 2015.
The pair, both musicians and media creators, escaped from LA to the high desert of Joshua Tree.
They embarked on a musical duo, electro-pop journey playing dozens of shows and releasing two albums, 4 singles and dozens of music videos within the span of 3 years. With an outpouring of support in the community, they worked alongside a circus-duo to bring Aydras aerial singing vision to life, producing half a dozen 'Big-Top' shows.
In 2018 after a brief tour where they produced a traveling vlog and broadened their photo and video tools, Aydra launched her first Airbnb experience in Joshua Tree and began shooting with dozens of subjects in the desert forming a new business and earning the ability to discontinue cleaning Airbnbs which has sustained them nearly 3 years.
The experience quickly gained 5-star status and the 2 eventually found themselves on a nomadic journey and on the other side of a pandemic in Tulum, Mexico writing new material and copy-pasting Aydras experience to format for the area as well.
Fast forward to 2022, Aydra took some solo time to form her new venture in Goddess retreats while completing the new album, Odyssee. After shooting with thousands of guests, she wanted to elevate the concept with focus on women empowerment, also launching a small wandering gown rental for shoots and retreats. With the release of Odyssee on 11.11.22 Aydra is now focused on live shows, new singles, and inspired adventures, shoots, + more Goddess retreats in 2023! Stay tuned and thank you for supporting artists. Here's to living all your dreams in 2023!!
