“YOYO” by Fior
Named one of People magazine's emerging artists to watch this Spring, independent artist Fior makes sleek, beat-driven, pop-infused music with elements of R&B, rock, and soul. There's a modern, atmospheric quality to her sound, where trap beats and symphonic swells provide a rich textural backdrop for her lush, agile vocals.
Fior's distinct, self-taught style was influenced by Billy Joel, Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Michael Jackson. Gifted a toy piano by her dad, a tour manager for bands in the 90s, Fior learned to play by ear at just 8 years old, soon writing her own lyrics and making beats. Along the way, she developed her characteristic vocal tone, blending husky alto vibrato with a uniquely soulful timbre.
Fresh off the back of her debut single Let Me Go, Fior's defiant anthem decrying toxic cycles that placed her on the radar. Here comes her second single YOYO (yo on yo own), a disco funk 90's regen produced by the
legendary Scott Storch, poised to seize the summer by celebrating the freedom of moving on as Fior's music narrative continues.
