Miya Kanzaki - Alto / Alt. VP

According to Miya’s parents, she used to belt out the ABC song while standing in her crib. She began piano lessons at the age of 5 (Suzuki method) and stuck with them for 13 years. 

When she went off to UCSB, since her dorm room couldn’t fit a piano, she took up acoustic guitar. She performed with the University chorus and sang backups with a local blues band. As she went on to pursue an MFA in poetry from Columbia University in NYC, she continued to sing with choirs, including the Greenwich Village Singers. 

Since then, she’s sung with the San Francisco Concert Chorale and performed her own original music at house concerts and with a band. She is currently a Copywriter at Pandora.

Miya is thrilled to be singing with Prime Time. She thanks her husband and two sons for their love and support.
