The artist currently known as Demure is by no means a stranger to entertainment world. Very early on, she developed a proclivity for the arts. At the tender age of seven, Demure (also known as Ayanna Guyhto) began drawing, and writing short stories and poems. Her talents in these areas were often recognized publicly in her schools, by both Ebony Jr. and Highlights magazines. Her poetic gift has also been documented twice in Kennesaw State University''s (where she attended college) literary magazine.
As the years progressed, she spread her proverbial wings, taking on such activities as dance and modeling. In 1991, she strutted down the runway, modeling evening gowns for Legends Formalwear, in Alpharetta, Ga. And in 1992, she appeared briefly on the NBC-drama, "In the Heat of the Night", filmed in Covington, GA.
With her strong attachment to the arts, it was only a matter of time before Demure took an interest in music. She would sing around the house, or whenever the inclination hit her. Family and friends have always remarked upon her silky voice. Her diversity in musical tastes has helped her to appreciate its many genres. She began singing professionally almost by accident, as she was asked to sing at a wedding with the R&B band, Casual Effect. Although she never actually sang at the wedding, she soon became a feature of the band in the mid 1990''s. From there, her interest in studio recording ensued. She is most influenced by Sade''s smooth sultriness, Lenny Kravitz''s chameleon-like style, and the urban flavor the hip-hop generation she''s proudly a member of.
Prior to, and after the release of her self-titled debut album, Demure, she has performed in Atlanta, in venues such as Joseph''s, Club Expressions, Hairston''s Nightclub, The 14th Street Playhouse, The Taste, Café 290, the Apache Café, The Martini Club, The Chart House, Ray''s on the River, Club Kaya, the Havana Club, and the annual Sweet Auburnfest. She and her band, Casual Effect, have also performed at many special (and private) functions in the metro Atlanta area including several sporting clubs and fashion shows. Demure has also performed in Minneapolis, MN with Prince former band at Jazzmine''s and has appeared in an interview on the The Rhythm Beat Music Show located in in Stillwater, Minnesota. Her songs are playing regularly on KMOJ 89.9 FM the Heart and Soul of the Cities, Minneapolis, MN.
