Paytra was born in the small hamlet of Lambertville, Michigan, south of Detroit, to a mixed-Mexicana mother and a German father. Paytra made a very bold move and took a risk of a lifetime, alone, she moved to Brooklyn, New York. She already knew what she wanted in life, but with no money and lack of experience, she ultimately came to the reality of what most women in the music space face: difficulty.
Paytra was able to persevere and with determination and hard work, she was able to break through with her music and has since then been featured on MTV, Womanly magazine, Vlad TV, and Sirius XM’s Shade 45radio. Her music has amassed a lot of streams and performed impressively well globally.
Paytra is a type of woman who is strong and determined and thus isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind and break the mould. She is known as a business mogul and a fierce symbol of feminism, strength, and power.
