Lorely Rodriguez, who creates music under alias ‘Empress Of, was born in LA. Originally intent on becoming a jazz singer upon arriving at Berklee, she later realized she was more interested in producing every aspect of her own music. In 2012, she anonymously uploaded her first production (Colorminutes) to YouTube. She went on to release more work in the following years and was signed to record companies. Apart from her clear creative talent evidenced by her ability to single-handedly produce beautiful music, Lorely is impressive for her intellectual expression as both human and woman. Described as introspective, self-empowering, uptempo, and even danceable, Empress Of brings much-needed value to today’s music scene.
If you do nothing else on this slow Sunday, listen to her song “Woman Is A Word”. SONG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZbwTrrJkhc
