Greya, although only 21, has spent more than a decade writing, singing, and reconciling the ugly with the beautiful. The Philadelphia native began studying singing in earnest at 9, picked up the guitar at 10, and started writing by 11. “From the time I can remember, I thought, I’m going to be a singer,” Greya says. “I was so confident and into it. It wasn’t a matter of if. It was when.” Odds have never really been a match for Greya. She and her twin sister were born deaf, and while both girls regained hearing at about two-months-old, Greya’s appreciation and pursuit of sound can’t help but be shaped in part by the realization that for her, it almost didn’t exist at all. “I think about it sometimes––if my hearing hadn’t developed, I wouldn’t be able to do everything I do now,” she says. “I feel very lucky. Everything I love to do is centered around listening.”
