Name: Fana Hues
Hometown: Pasadena, California
Latest Project: flora + fana

The success Fana Hues has rightfully earned for herself in the last few years would take most decades to achieve. From a Tyler, The Creator cosign—and a resulting feature on the longest song of the best rap project of 2021—to the release of her dreamy 11-track flora + fana project, Fana is being introduced to, as she explains, way more access to the creative resources she needs to make her material shine. 

But it isn’t just the added eyes and new resources that make the Pasadena-born songbird a perfect fit for the inaugural See You Next Year class and a place on Pigeons & Planes’ first compilation album. No, no, no; It’s her music, which is equal parts intergalactic and enchanting. And as she worked on her track “Drive” for our project alongside Synth God Mike Dean, she realized that it doesn’t take much to get it to that sweet spot, as long as she allows things to happen naturally.

“I had a glimpse of that freedom that I hope I get in this next year creatively,” Fana explains. “When I get out of my own head and just write something that just feels good, rather than over analyzing what it is and, as far as lyrics go, rhyme schemes and things like that. So ‘Drive’ was a breath of fresh air, creatively for me, because I got to just go off and do what it is that came naturally rather than sitting down and focusing a little too hard.”
