Who is Ayiti Coles?
I’m 19 years old. I consider myself a real artist at heart whether it’s singing, writing, drawing, photography… I’m laid back, silly, a bit of an airhead and quite impatient. I always try to stay open minded and really think it’s important not to judge anyone or anything.
As for how I embrace this in my music, I don’t really try do anything in particular. I believe it shows through naturally, as it’s all a part of me. I’ve contemplated writing songs in French and in Spanish. I actually write prose in both languages and for now it’s only prose, but who knows? Maybe down the road it can become a song.
Tell us about your singing career. How did it start? Have you recorded any single? Any album?
One of my first souvenirs of singing is the Christmas carol show when I was about 5; I had a solo in “Petit Papa Noel.” Also, I participated in two out of the three school plays that were produced at my high school. In 8th grade I was lead in the Emilie Jolie musical. However, my decision to pursue music came after the earthquake. I always knew I wanted to be a singer, but I was always shy about it. In 2010, my perspective on life changed. I realized we have to go after what we want, even if it means deviating from the traditional path. I decided I didn’t want to waste any more time being afraid and had to pursue my passion and give it my all. In the fall we recorded about three songs, including Ghost Town, and ever since then I’ve recorded about 7 more. Technically I almost have an album, though I’m not quite ready to put it out yet. I’m still figuring out whether to add or alter tracks.
