Aya Korem (Hebrew: אַיָּה כּוֹרֵם) is an Israeli pop/rock singer and songwriter. She was the runner-up for two Female Singer of the Year awards in 2006.
Aya Korem was born on January 7, 1980 in Nazareth Ilit and spent her childhood there. She served as an instructor at the IDF's Armored Corps.
Since childhood Korem has been singing and performing, playing the guitar and the piano. Between 2001 and 2004 she studied Songwriting, Composition and Performance at the Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Ramat HaSharon, a school that gave birth to many Israeli singers such as Noa and Aviv Geffen. She was part of the "magic class", studying together with Miri Mesika, Keren Peles, Ohad Hitman and Eric Berman that went on to be popular singers. She enrolled in the music college just to "pass some time" until she decided what she really wanted to study, but ended up having a successful music career. She dreamed of being an architect, and one of her temporary jobs was cake baking at a bakery.
Nowadays Aya lives in Ramat HaSharon, and between performances and recordings works as a bartender in Tel Aviv.
