Korean-Australian singer-songwriter YURA has been cultivating her sound and passion for music since she was 16 years old. Starting out by experimenting with GarageBand, she slowly grew her repertoire with a number of independent releases. Over time, she has skillfully crafted a unique sound that is both captivating and endlessly evolving.
Wielding a voice and experience uniquely her own, YURA tells enchanting stories that are both heartfelt and relatable, drawing listeners in with her raw emotion and undeniable charm. All of this is melodically underpinned by the young artist’s diverse range of influences. Amalgamating contemporary R&B with indie pop and lofi – YURA creates unique, genre bending tracks, each an intimate unveiling of a new side of herself.
Recently signed as an artist under management group Foreign Echo, YURA has now joined the likes of, Skin on Skin, Pretty Girl and Tobiahs. YURA's track "Pearl" has garnered over 2 million streams on Spotify, and she has continued to push the boundaries of what is possible in music. She has performed at notable events such as supporting Korean rapper Coogie at his Sydney show in 2019, as well as joining Grent Perez as support on his AUS/NZ tour during September 2022.
Her debut EP titled ‘Eternal Tiare’ released at the end of 2023, draws inspiration from the legendary anime series Sailor Moon and is a testament to her personal evolution and captivating allure of YURA’s transformation. Overseen by Executive Producer Andy Hopkins (Eves Karydas, E^st, Cat & Calmell) and crafted in collaboration with talents such as jah Loon (Tkay Maidza, Agung Mango) and stevenc4stle (BIBI), ‘Eternal Tiare’ weaves together sonic landscapes to artfully reflect YURA’s personal journey both as a musician and a young individual going through the motions of life.
As YURA embarks on this new chapter of her musical career, the resonance of ‘Eternal Tiare’ marks the beginning of something as enduring and remarkable as the cosmic force it’s named after.
