Korean-American “substance pop” artist, AZRA, is set to headline the A2IM & RoadNation-presented live stream series, Road-Less, this Friday, 4/17, at 5:40 PM PST. Fans can tune in via Twitch, YouTube or Facebook. The live stream concert is an opportunity to support indie musicians and to continue bringing live music to fans during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Performing artists will be able to make money by selling merchandise and VIP packages to listeners. All of AZRA’s proceeds will be donated to the Sweet Relief COVID-19 Musicians Fund.
AZRA shares: “During the hardest time is when we grow the most and during the darkest time is when we have the opportunity to find the brightest lights within ourselves and each other. Together, with our love for music and unity, we will get through this pandemic. Being able to participate in the Road-less Concert Series to help fellow artists, raise funds for the Sweet Relief COVID-19 Musicians Fund, as well as share love, levity, and support is an honor and I am super excited to be part of it.” For more information on AZRA, please visit: https://www.azraofficial.com/.
AZRA is a multi-faceted force of nature. Her music is created on her own terms: always authentically, and always in her own unconventional way. Influenced by musical artists that range from Freddie Mercury to Madonna; to Whitney Houston and P!nk, AZRA’s music is mission-driven and inspirational, with infectious melodies and uplifting hooks.
In 2017, AZRA released her debut EP Freedom through her own label, CLÚ Records. The EP features lush melodies along with uplifting, dance-worthy hooks, such as those on the singles “Shine” and “Gravity”. With the release, AZRA garnered praise from TWIST Magazine, All Things Go, PopDust, Singers Room, Women’s Republic and FOX News, to name a few.
Since then, AZRA has opened for the Plain White T’s on their High School Nation tour, performed at major Pride festivals all around the country and has regularly performed live at college festivals, radio stations, storied LA venues (Viper Room, Mint, Peppermint Club), high schools and non-profit organizations. “Dimension”, her 2018 single co-written and produced by Grammy-winning artist Jamie Jones and his production partner Matt Wong, hit #1 on the Digital Radio Airplay Charts for two consecutive weeks, while the music video received over 200,000 views on YouTube.
Following these singles that received attention from LA Weekly, AllAccess and more, AZRA released her song, “Skyline”, which explores the complexity of love, and how its imperfections make it beautiful. In November 2019, the burgeoning pop artist unveiled her piano-driven track, “Right Here”, which “embraces the obstacles one faces and encourages us all to stand our ground amidst anything thrown our way” (The Women’s International Music Network). Most recently, AZRA released her women’s empowerment anthem, “Dangerous”, which premiered on Hollywood Life: “For all the women breaking down barriers and shattering glass ceilings, AZRA has an anthem for you, and her new video shows how ‘Dangerous’ powerful females can be.”
