MYYORA is a major talent. You wouldn’t necessarily know it straight off the cuff, because she is an elegant, somber and understated presence — someone who lays back in the track letting you come to her rather than throwing herself at you. If you’re familiar with her music, you know that she has worked in the creation of smooth R&B and Neo-Soul, stylistic EDM, and slinky Pop. She knows her strengths and on her latest single, “One Song” she capitalizes on them without any extra flashy superficiality. Whenever her voice enters a verse it doesn’t feel like an unnecessary interruption in the way many pop songs are prone to, but instead, its inclusion adds to the depth of the song and the story being told between the notes.

MYYORA performs with the confidence of a seduction goddess. The music she presented is sensual, graceful, and full of soul. The songstress possesses the ability to make even the simplest of phrases resonate in your mind endlessly.
Born in London from Congolese parentage, MYYORA has also spread her roots to France, and manages to blend all of the existential fundamentals from those experiences into the essence of her music, as she scrutinizes the irrational workings of the world, trying to make sense of it all. She works with a French-Irish songwriting team and records professionally in the South of France.
The fact that she has a degree in Theatre Directing, simply adds more fuel to her already burning artistic flame. “One Song” offers an easy listening experience, and truly takes you through its deep-thinking analysis and reflections.
