Zory is the Singer
London, United Kingdom
Indie / Rock
Film Composer, Singer / Songwriter, Music Producer.
I started writing music at a very early age. After studying music theory and playing the piano professionally for over 10 years (BG School of Performing Arts), I focused on composing, writing lyrics and singing. After having spent a few years of studies in Moscow, with sufficient education and experience in various aspects of music, in 2008 I moved to London to pursue my dreams. After having worked with several recording studios and put 3 singles on the online market, also having completed training in music production software, in 2010 I released my debut album through my own self-titled label, while steadily progressing in the film industry, as a film composer, but also as an actress.
My great passion for music focuses on creating completely innovative styles and unique tunes. My personal preference is a hybrid of genres, influenced by my Bulgarian background, extensive classical training, singing at a Byzantine Orthodox choir for 7 years, a taste in melodic rock and heavy metal, and tremendous passion for film and soundtracks.
I specialize mainly in composition, arrangement, orchestration, music production, song writing and signing.
