Ayanna Depas, also known as, Yanni Apple Seedz, is a Freelance Recording Engineer

based out of New York. Ever since she was a toddler, she had a prodigious

passion for music. It was not until the age of 19, when

she realized her unyielding love for the sonic arts. In the Fall of 2010, Yanni attended

the Institute of Audio Research

(www.audioschool.com). After graduating with a perfect Grade Point Average,

Yanni knew the best way to

continue her education was through hands on experience. She began to intern at

prestigious recording facilities like Quad Studios in New York City, all the while tutoring students atYAS STUDIO PIC 2

the Institute of Audio Research to earn some extra cash. It was not until the year 2012,

when she found a home at Oz Studios in New York City, owned by the Legendary, R&B guru, Jeff


(CEO of MBK Entertainment – Manager of R&B mega star Alicia Keys). There she earned

credits on projects with artist like Alicia Keys, A$AP Ferg, Brandy, and SWV to name a

few… From recording and mixing the music of others, to creating her own musical

productions, Yanni loves all that the creation of music has to offer. “There’s nothing like

creating a colorful portrait, on a musical canvas, with the manipulation of sound.” (See
