Her debut album, Replay Last Night, was released in February 2013. Astronautica and Replay Last Night, made it into Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly, along with other publications and music blogs from all over the world. Her single, ‘Cruise,” was #6 on XLR8R’s ‘Top 20 Downloads of January.’ Her release also landed her a spot with world renowned Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
Astronautica has since then played shows with many notable artists, the CAA Grammy’s Party and at Coachella 2013. She is a resident with Beat Cinema every last Friday of the month at the Spirit House. Now Astronautica is working on numerous projects, remixes and mixtapes.
