What’s the story of HÜSIA?
I began learning how to DJ in 2016 for fun, but by the time January of 2017 rolled around, I knew if I wanted to do anything with music that I needed to be able to produce. I quickly started working on Ableton and became so obsessed with it that I quit my internship in summer of 2017 to live in the mountains back in Colorado and work on music 8 hours a day. In October I started working on a track “MissYou” that I finally felt was what I wanted to release as my debut song. Hüsia comes from an ethiopian term meaning “goose” and my last name “Koza” paired up with it in means goosebumps.
