Embrace the rise of a new age in music, where Berlin-based artist, WRY (real name: Weronika Stasiak), defines herself not just as an RnB singer-songwriter but an artist that paints vivid pictures using a fusion of emotions, soulful voice, and well-curated beats. Hailing from a family of musicians, WRY’s penetrative and polarizing musical expression is shaping a fresh perspective in the modern RnB landscape.
Conjuring soulful, fierce, and passionate vibes, WRY’s sound offers a tantalizing cocktail that blends elements of soul and dark pop into her RnB roots. Serving as a mirror to her life experiences, her tracks are bold explorations of love and life, reflecting the essence of being human. For first-time listeners, ‘dark spice’ layered on ‘vibrant and moving’ percussion will make her music feel like a spontaneous dance between intimacy and grandeur.
This emerging artist started her musical journey at a tender age of nine. Encouraged by her musical aunt and grandfather who would later become her mentors, WRY developed her vocal and stage performance skills under their tutelage. She has since carried this foundation into her current music career, which sees her crafting songs springing from her life’s events.
The cherry on top of this progression indeed is her latest single, “Drop It,” a teaser of her artistic direction, destined to turn heads and leave crowds bopping. Bright and brimming with intricate sound design, this track is part of the palette of singles WRY has been churning out in preparation for her much-anticipated EP release by the year’s end.
If you’re aching for more, stick around. WRY reveals that her next single is set to drop by the end of September. Quarantine or not, this rising star isn’t showing signs of slowing down. While WRY would be thrilled to collaborate with industry bigwigs like Chris Brown or Doja Cat, she’s equally excited about teaming up with under-the-radar talents like Banks or Stanaj.
WRY’s music stands as an antidote to the reluctance to embrace individuality. She iterates it’s okay to ‘be yourself’ and that your feelings are ‘valid always, at any time.’ In essence, her music is therapy wrapped in a package of sonic delight for anyone who’s ever felt the need to apologize for simply being themselves.
She teams up with her producer, Adam Le Hamel, to painstakingly craft the sound and production of her songs- giving you just the right amount of ‘neat layer of dark spice on top of vibrant and moving percussion.’ Together, they are powering through to achieve an elusive blend of raw emotion and refined production; not too far off from the qualities that define WRY’s musical idol, Amy Winehouse.
WRY’s expressive tunes are a melodious reassurance of her growth and evolution as an artist. With her distinct vocal sound and layered beats, this Berlin-based artist is achieving what others only dream of: creating music that reaches out and resonates with a wider audience.
