Myyora : One Song Review
By Darnell Jackson
Myyora is a London-born vocalist and songwriter with roots in France, The Congo, and England. Splitting her time between edgy metropolitan London and an eco-friendly garden centre in Provence gives her music a unique blend through her life settings. Music is the essence of her life as she melds the different musical aspects of her mixed heritage and travel experiences. Her songs are based in the Neo-Soul styles and are easy-to-listen-to with poetic, nature-inspired lyrics with reverberating dance beats that are subtly framed by sounds of other genres. With a degree in Theatre Directing, Myyora brings that sense of drama into her musical manifestations. Myyora records her creations in a professional studio in the south of France, collaborating with a French/Irish songwriting team. She is now releasing her single “One Song.”
“One Song” has an element of electronica and EDM as her soulful voice fills the stereo field. Her singing has aspects of pop, soul, and R&B. The productions are sparse but subtly builds to create a developmental backing sound for Myyora’s vocals. With a move to her upper register, Myyora makes drama and a new color to the melody. A constant dance beat is brought in for the second verse and her vocal harmonies and doubling are catchy and add fullness.
In conclusion, “One Song” is a beautiful selection from a singer that might not be on your current musical radar, but she should be. Her Neo-Soul vocal elegance and play of style and drama generate a charming listening feel. Also, she has an acoustic version of “One Song” for those who prefer a more organic sound.
